Well after mentioning my name, I got inspired and broke out the recording equipment. Took all but an hour. Threw something together in iMovie and my first post to YouTube. Of course the intake noise gets more aggressive with a load out driving. But you get the idea. Yes it is really that bassy in person. Not ricey at all. Very clean and throaty. :)

Wow that sounds great! I'd be concerned about puddles though; that grill design forces the hose to be awfully low. Personally I just removed the stock resonator and capped the hole with an oversize pill bottle cap and duct tape.

All that matters is that YOU like it, but this is definitely not the way I want my Focus to sound. Total props though for being the first to do this!!

Tony, I was going to say the same thing after watching the video, then I came to your post. I agree on all counts...

This.

From what I hear in the video, there is VERY LITTLE to no "backfire pop" I will call it from improper resonation. And what I have heard from the custom Magnaflow setup already done, there is PLENTY of fart can crackle. Perhaps this is what one looks for in an aftermarket exhaust. Me on the other hand, want as close to a mellow low throaty tone as possible. I think this is PHENOMENAL! I have my tip on order to do the same thing.....while waiting for FSWERKS to get their butt in gear!!!

Do a drive by for us brother! Would you say in person this sounds like the FSWERKS race exhaust or stealth? Just curious about the volume. Does sound SUPER loud. Is it REALLY noticeable while driving? Or only when you get on it?
