Did anyone end up painting there magnaflow exhaust system? I noticed the cleveland winter wasn't too kind as far as rust goes to my OEM setup, so I've been toying with the idea of painting it with some high temp paint to fight rust and also make it less obvious where it hangs down from the stock locations.

There's no need to paint the stainless steel system. All your higher end cars use stainless due to the salt sand & ash from treating the roads for winter weather. That stainless steel exhaust will outlast the car.

I hit my muffler only with some flat black hi-temp paint to help it "disappear" when viewed from behind.

Hm okay. The muffler/resonator combo are both already welded in line from Magnaflow. I can't decide if I'll paint it or not.

Is autoanything still the best price for the magnaflow exhaust? Also, what coupon code gives you the 15% off at autoanything. I tried RMN15 but it did not work.

EDIT: Just read through the restrictions. Looks like you can't use a coupon code on magnaflow products. Anyone know of a better price then 620 shipped? That seems to be the best price I can find.

Try welcome15

Alternatively, contact customer support. They weren't running the 15% off for new customers when I ordered my K&N Intake, so I just asked if they were going to run it again. The representative just gave me the discount then. It may be worth trying it on the exhaust. Just state that you're willing to buy now if it can be done.

Also, at $493 I feel the exhaust was a bit pricey. at $657 it seems to me to be not that economical. I really like the seemingly increased power without drastic volume change, but that's a lot of money for a few steel tubes.

Thank you for the advise, I will give them a call tomorrow.

Also, I agree with you about the price. 657 is way to much for an exhaust, no matter how much I love the sound. I am willing to pay 500 to 550 though.

No problem at all. I did this through the live chat also, and they sent me a link to check out.

I think they offer some type of price guarantee, which is reassuring given the volatility of this unit.

Thanks again for the info, I will definitely hit them up tomorrow.

Also, I don't mean to thread jack but how do you like the focus electric RMM? I was going to get the mazdaspeed one?

No problem.
I like the motor mount a lot. I don't have the mazdaspeed mount for comparison, but the general consensus seemed to be that the eFocus mount is stiffer than the MS3 without being too extreme. It is definitely much beefier than stock, and there is much less motor flex.
You can order it from Tousleyford for the cheapest I believe.
CM5Z-6068-A is the part #.

http://tousleyfordparts.com/parts/in...&siteid=214771

It was $55 or so to my door.
EDIT: THe url isn't working, but if you go to tousleyfordparts.com and type in that part number and select ford it should pop up. I emailed to check shipping prices and confirm the part before ordering.
