Well since we don't have an axle in the rear it would go over the rear cross member. There is a large enough area to run an exhaust up and over.

Just to add I bought a FR Borla for the 2.3 center exit setup for $150. Next day I bought the FR Borla for the zx4 sedan w/ resanater for $200. And sold the center exit, to one of my buddies. I can't beat the price or quality or sound. It is 2.25 & T-304 stainless. I cut off the little mini cat after the flex pipe. That was back in '07 thou. And my buddy at Bickford ford let me know.

How does the FSWerks street performance exhaust (CARB legal) compare to the stealth exhaust? And how do both of these compare to the lunchbox delete?

Street is loudest and keeps both cats. Stealth has a resonator so it's pretty quiet. Lunchbox doesn't add any performance but doesn't sound too bad kinda between the two from fs when it comes to volume

So if you get a fswerks stealth or race exhaust it deletes a cat? If so will the car still pass inspection?
