this weekend i had a shop cut out the muffler in the back and the resonator in the front of my ses. I left in the pre muffler that sits just in front of the back tire. It sounds great! Alough because i stuck with the 2" pipe it does sound a little ricey when i floor it.

FYI open manifold sounds amazing at idle but you may wanna invest in some ear plugs if you go that route. also you lose all your bottom end torche and hp.

honestly this may sound strange but I put a flowmaster super 10 on my 12 foci and it sounds amazazazazing. I have been stopped several times by people I pass asking how much my engine swap was lol. I am hoping to have some video of the exhaust this week and put it up on you tube; I just need to find someone to ride along with to film.

cusious, why would this sound strange? I am trying to find a good way to get some sound from my 12 focus. Is it not normal to put a flowmaster on there?

Any ideas or any specific systems you know about?

Another thing will just a new muffler make my car louder? I don't want it to be super loud but I want some kind of vroom in it.
