I'm running the Focussport exhaust with stealth option on my 08 coupe...got it at around the 5000mi mark and now have 21,000 miles- no problems.

^^^^ How do you like the sound and have you notice any pick up from having the exhaust? If so how much?

Well, I love mine - nice throaty tone and when you jump on it there's no question about it, you're not dealing with a stock Focus. I can't quantify the amount of HP added, but my butt sure likes it.

yeah the bottom end and midrange def had the most benefit...my stealth setup sounds like an 0EM-spec exhaust upgrade. On long trips, when the exhaust temps stay high for a bit the exhaust note is slightly more noticeable and has a deeper tone. This past weekend my fam and I dropped my sis off at Boston U and the exhaust sounds great going through the tunnels.

You're welcome, and you'll love it when it's lowered. It will be a new car, you'll actually enjoy taking corners, your passenger might not - without something to hold on to - but you will. That's why my wife is all for reclining racing seats now, she doesn't like joining me in my seat on right hand turns. She sat is Stolle's racing seats at our G2G and has been sold on them since (thanks Stolle!).

no prob...I know how important it is to be informed when it comes to purchasing mods for your ride- especially if it's still under warranty, lol.

You can add the F2USA short shifter to the list. I installed mine a few days ago. I wrote up the install HERE.

DO NOT confuse the F2USA short throw with the look-alike knockoff on Ebay. And the picture on the F2USA web-site is not an accurate representation of what you will receive. See the pics in my write up for that.

No hassle, straight forward install, without any issues. Significantly reduced the shift pattern. I'm lov'n it!

Pay real close attention to what some other companies are calling a "STS". Rumor is, and the picture I've seen confirmed it, that all that STS is doing is raising the stock shift cable bracket a little bit. No, I don't know that for a fact, I still haven't seen what someone actually gets in their hands, but if that really is the case, well you might as well just raise your own stock bracket like NemesisEnforcer did.
