Single tip eh? Did you switch for the tip from the older Focus kit? If you still have that dual tip I want it haha!

In my exhaust thread, zx3matt found a solution (on ebay I think) that might work for you FSWerks owners who want to cut down on drone. Here is the post:

Or in black...

Or if your ok with moving the exhaust exit to the right side, you could run a bigger muffler transversely like the stock setup. You'd just need more piping and someone to bend it.

What wheels are those? Those would be perfect for making my car a close match to what I'm trying to do at some point.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to look into that. I swapped out the tip when I bought exhaust yesterday. It is the drone about 40mph I want to get rid of. Otherwise I like it.

After work today, my buddy re modified the exhaust mod from Thursday...

We added a Flowmaster HushpowerII to my FSWerks exhaust. This helped reduce the drone to a tolerable level for an old guy...recessed tip in bumper some this time too...

Glad it worked out for you.

Good on you to recess that tip some as well.
