Sorry dont like the look at all! only like it when you have the side pipes run along the side of the car like on the old stingray's or AC cobras. Not sure the focus would do well on that or look right. Not to mention doing that you will have 1 rim dirtier then the other 4.

Does not sound bad... but sounds like almost every other exhaust that has the resonator and muffler where it should and just bent pipe from the rear cross member back.

I hope that was a joke.

I don't know what you're talking about. he isn't driving a fuel dumping diesel. my wheel never gets dirtier than the others. It does seem a little unfinished in my opinion, but I like the pipe to be more angled.

Mine on a different car, I did it because it helped my turbo spool noticeably better. It actually sounds pretty good with that $15 muffler too. I tried it straight piped in the same spot. that was a little too much for me.

what? slow down lol.

actually I was referring to the rude comment...

I suggest you not trick your front 02 sensor. It gives a direct feedback to the computer which adjusts the mixture. The rear one is not as important. If you suspect it is bad, test it. The spark plug non-fouler trick... I believe it moves it out of the way of the exhaust? If so, you'll see an even richer mixture instead of leaning it out like you hope.
