I dunno about you but it dyno's up with the other catbacks out there. quality is top notch. for it going under the rear axle, i've had no problem with scraping it and im dumped at least 3 inches all around. for looks, to each their own. you can knock on that if you wish but as for performance and scraping issues, do your research before you knock on a good exhaust.
Oh TRUST me I've done ALOT of research on this buddy......

i think the major concerns (dislikes) fall under two catagories:

aesthetics:
*The exhaust does not look like it is designed for the focus--it doesn't even look like it fits
*not only does the whole muffler sit cockeyed and exposed, the exhaust tip is big enough to fist

function:
*The exhaust sits lower than others...some claim scraping, others say it's not a problem
*Being a smaller diameter tubing, you can't even have the possibility of FI in the future
*HKS, even though more expensive than (SS) Borla, is made of the same material as the cheapest of catback systems and will rust eventually
Exactly!

I'm happy with my stock exhaust, well except for the guzzle guzzle pop pop.

Unless your going FI most of the aftermarket exhausts make only 3-6whp at best. So where is the mythological HKS dyno sheet at

And that slanted off to one side muffler is FUGLY

best quote ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think anyone was "bashing". Just stating thier own opinions.
