Yes the flex needs to be lengthened and it only has one o2 port

I just can't get over how well FocusBoy58's car sounds with the long tube. But I am still afraid the resonance would kil me on my DD... :-(

Someone has obviously never heard rice before,and that 08 is only a little quiter then mine,the reason focusboys is different is he has multiple mufflers and resonators I have one single muffler(you know race exhaust)

Sounds just like my old 4cyl Mustang Foxbody Racecar. I think if you use a Resonator just before the exit, that would cut down or eliminate any interior resonance. Thats what I plan on doing once some tuning becomes available. I have the same exhaust as he does minus the header and it drones like a champ.

The reason I put the '08 vid up was to show that despite the extra compression, the sound of your car would be typical of a Duratec with a header and FSWrx race exhaust.

I agree that FocusBoy's extra muffling helps a bunch. Like I said, I coul care less what others hear outside, I just want to keep interior resonance down.
