That is the official duratec exhaust thread; a video has gotta be on there some where. Or search for lunchbox removal. I've seen a few videos around.

Not to thread jack but what does this take to do this? I want to but I don't have a welder or pipe bender so I don't want to get in over my head.

I removed both of my mufflers and my car sounds sweet. i got friends who have spent alot of money to try and make there hondas sound "good." but a focus with no mufflers just sounds sexy. its not to loud but can scream when you want it to.
