Yeah you got a point but sometimes it just has to be done.

I would make sure you contact whoever your buying that EVO kit off and ask them how much 'modification' is going to be needed to get it to fit.

Yeah, sometimes it does need to be done, but I would only go to a certain point. Don't want to start screwing around with the frame and support peices too much.

Dual exhaust on a focus isn't the best idea, you got no 'extra' gains from it besides looks and 'rice' comments. Nice to have another 'Canadian' on the board here..... Welcome to FF.com also....

Duals will definitely give you looks, mostly bad. It's HUGE in europe (duals on a focus) but over there they got way more power under the hoods (RS, Cosworth, etc)....

Two big fartcans hanging off the back of the bumper looks ghey. I seen a guy on here do it 'tastefully' with a SVT and it looked really good, mirror image of the single setup. Nice stuff.

Sarcasm, ummm yeah I am definitely 'feeling' it man......

Anyway, the reason duals on a 4 banger get such a 'bad rep' is the fact that they don't do anything but add 'noise' and 'looks' and don't add anything to the performance side of things, like you mentioned about, your not going for performance so yeah, go with the duals then. All I know is duals on a 4 banger are almost 100% of the time called "rice"...... it's the way it is. To each there own though, if you like it, get it, it's your car.

Not trying to bash your ideas or anything, but I am experienced with modding and along with the majority of the veterans on here, they will all agree with me when I say what I said. Of course duals on a mustang don't look ghey but they also have a purpose on there, on a little 4 banger, all it is is 'bling'.....
