It might change the tone a bit, but I doubt you'll actually see any performance gains just from changing the final muffler
not a lunchbox its not a pre 11 its a fulll blown muffler

ok time to be nice

Oh lord, yes a 4cyl can be made into a "true" dual exhaust, you can make a "true" dual on a 2 cyl, Harley Davidson have been doing it for years. BMW has been doing it on their motorcycles as well. You have heard for a 4-2-1 header right? well lop off the 2-1 and run 2 separates back and you have a TRUE dual exhaust. I haev seen Subaru's doing this before.

This is about as close as I have seen to a "dual" system on a Focus, and it is sitting in my garage. http://www.flickr.com/photos/4638213...in/photostream

Who did your exhaust work? I live in Ft. Worth and I'm having trouble finding a decent shop to get mine done. Any input would be appreciated.

I got a quote from a few places before I got mine done. Kenny's is probably the best place around, but they told me it was going to be close to a grand for the setup I wanted. I ended up getting mine done at big johns mufflers in Haltom city. The prices are good and he does really good work it is a first come first serve shop and he goes over everything with you before and while he's installing everyrhing.

I got a quote from him at $490 for just the axle back. He was doing a Denali that had duals run with the bumper cut out. His work is clean but pricey. Did you get the entire system redone at 2.5" at Big John's or axle back only?
