Dual Exhaust??

I have a focus ZX3, I'm planing on putting a body kit on it in the spring. However on the body kit rear bumper it has a dual exhaust cut out on it so I went looking for a company that makes a dual exhaust system for the Ztech motor. I have yet to find one so if anybody knows of someone who does please let me know. (or if it would be better to just custom make a Y pipe)

which body kit are you looking because i'm looking at the cervinis kit that has dual exhaust on it. to answer your question, i have no idea. you will probably have to have a custom bent exhaust made because i haven't seen dual exhaust for the focus.

One thing you can do is have single in and dual out, which means you still only have one cat and one muffler but two pipes coming out of the muffler and going out the back. You could get true duel exhaust where you'd get a second cat and muffler but it is going to cost a lot more.

there are none pre-fabbed. you will have to have one custom made. split it behind the rear axle, and go to each side of the bumper's outlet. that's what i've seen done the most, and it makes the most sense.

a truel dual exhaust? with 2 cats 2 mufflers 2 pipes on a 4 cylinder inline engine? i hope you're joking right? how would that be setup, half of the 2 cylinder banks is one manifold and the other 2 the other? the focus doesn't need a dual exhaust setup, but if for some ungodly reason your body kit has dual outs you must go to an exhaust shop and have the system custom mandrel bent.

Cowsgo moo has the right idea here. A true dual exhaust would kill a 4 cylinder engine because there would not be enough back pressure and you would end up losing power. I am eventually either just sticking with single or am going for the dual exhaust look. I was quoted $150 for custom exhaust but that is also because they owe me a favor!!

A guy out here that is friends with EuroZX3 had that set-up on his focus, looked alirght, but Id stick with a single cat-back and save yourself some money, its really going to turn out just for show, not really for go, choose a diff bumper, im sure theres something with a similar look on the market with a single exhaust cut
