I have simply cut off the rear section and unbolted it from the car. I can put it back on using a $15 band clamp when I get tired of the noise. I DO like the lookes of some of the dual setups but I am thinking of running a straight pipe after the rear suspension across the car and exit with a single clean tip out of the factory hole (I will open the hole bigger though).
Have you bothered to pay attention to the average age of 2012 Focus buyers? We're OLD!. We're too busy chasing poontang to be unbolting mufflers on a regular basis. And if you haven't noticed, the Focus has 160hp. A muscle car it's NOT. Any attempt to fake performance will garner laughter from those who know. Buy a Mustang.
