I can say you could find a cheaper shop but his paint work is honestly second to none.

If interested message me and ill send you shop info
Thanks for the offer; I actually decided to try my hand at painting it myself with kinda mixed results. I'll post a pic later in the MKIII mod thread.

Yea he was flooring it, granted it was an automatic, he woulda eventually beat me with some more road cause he caught me at the end, but with a better start and TC off It woulda taken longer

This just made my day. I'm at work so I can't spend time going through the whole thread but what engine mods do you have? Exhaust and intake? I've got a buddy who just got a dodge durango with a hemi and its got some balls. I'd love to see how my focus would pair up once I tossed in some engine mods now.

No there are not any dynos in my area, Another member on this forum has same custom exhaust and Intake setup with the SCT tune and has 177 to the wheels so I figure Im close to that if not on it since I have the Header installed, He has the same header as I do just hasn't installed and Re done Dyno run yet. Im hoping im atleast putting 185 to the wheels after the tune.

Was it cheaper to go with custom work on the exhaust instead of a name brand? Also I have read that going to a dual exhaust messes with flow because its hard to make each side even. Not sure if that is true or if it is even a noticeable effect on power. Do you have any sound clips or videos of what your car sounds like?

I know the guys at the muffler shop so yea it was cheaper, Espically since i did F2 header it was worth doing it, and it woulda been cheaper with just single exhaust, and like i said other guys making good power with dual exhaust and I like the balanced look at the rear of the car, but hopefully in few weeks ill make a video for sound clips
