It was dark when I picked up the car yesterday and raining. The wife has the car at work today so when I get it later today I will wash it and take a photo. The total package is I must say very nice looking. It looks factory. Here is and 5 door european Focus ST. This is where I got the idea.





Compared to stock rear.

Yep thats the muffler. I went with Borla so it would not be loud. I had the parts ordered before we even picked up the car.

Yes I added the Sport emblem. Thats worth at least 5 hp right there.

The car is listed as having the sport package so I figured why not.

I am going on a road trip this weekend to Navarre Beach Florida about 4 hrs west of my home location. I will test it out. So far it feels like it pulls harder. Our cars are week upon 1st press of the gas but then it picks up the pace quickly. To me the car feels stronger. I also love the sound of it. I knew it would only pick up a few hp but I am happy with it.

I was going for a more agressive look from the rear and getting a little more performance was a plus. One can say its expensive but to each his own. I look at the back of the stock one and it looks like Ford ran out of budget. I have corrected that.

You could do it cheaper but it might sound like a 2 stroke chainsaw. The borla has a nice rumble.

Looks really good. I was actually looking at my bumper the other day to see if this is something that could be done. Good to know it can be. Cars look so much better when the exhaust is incorporated in to the bumper IMO.

Warranty

I would say no. Only on the exhaust parts I took off. People change cat back exhaust all day long. Even Ford racing has one for the car.

http://www.fordracingparts.com/parts...KeyField=12976

Its just single sided but it does eliminate the middle resonator muffler like I did.

If its any comfort cappa, I have modified the exhaust on every car I have owned. 1992 5.0 mustang, 2002 Subaru WRX, 2005 BMW Z-4, 2006 Infiniti G35, 2009 Toyota Tacoma. The Subaru was at the dealer, The Tacoma was at the dealer. I would not worry about the exhaust unless you mess with the cats.

Yes I agree. Look at other cars like Audi A4, Volvo S40, Hyundais Genesis coupe ETC.. All of those cars have 4 cyclinder engines but they all also have dual rear outlet exhaust tips. I am pretty sure they also gain very little from having two tips as far as horse power gains go but they all look better from the rear.

For all those that think its too much $$ look at the money like this.
What do you want?

The car is new so now is the time to shine. Do the mod now and enjoy it for the rest of your ownership. Lets say you own it for 3 years. The actual mod cost $432.00 divided by 1095 days = .39 cents a day to have a car that really looks good. You can't get a coke for .39 cents a day.

We add rims -tires and body kits and all kind of other junk that usually does nothing for horse power usually, but we spend huge dollars anyways.

To me the new Focus over all was looking great except the rear. Now thats fixed

Agree 100%. I didn't wait to get the windows tinted or to order lowering springs right when they were available (installing those this weekend). I'll probably be getting rims after I do my taxes, then I should pretty much be done with the visuals on this car. I would rather do it all up front and enjoy it for a longer period of time.
