Btw I think it has launch control... I've been meaning to start a thread on it.
If you would be so kind, what did you do to your exhaust. I'd like to get a better note from mine.


Thanks

The launch control sounds very cool, I hadn't even heard of it.

The launch control sure beats power braking! Are you running without a muffler? If you are, the car runs well and isn't to loud?
I got this response from Steeda Autosports today about their performance parts; "It will probably be a while. This Focus is a whole new platform and although we had Ford CAD data for it parts really need to be test fit and tested before they are released, and since there are not too many around yet this will take time. GoFast",
and this response from FSWerks; "Prototypes have been made already. Production will be a bit, as we need to wait for more cars to get out into the market place. We'll have our exhaust, intake, stress bars..."

Its not too loud. It sounds good for me. Just most people don't expect your focus to sound that way. I really need to get up here more often. Gotta update somethings lol. I plan on changing it when I get the money up.

I did this as well just to see how it sounds and I agree. It sounds amazing, almost like a Subaru. I just chopped off the last muffler and cleaned up the cut, didnt put a tip on so you dont see the exhaust at all. Might make a duel later on.
