Thumbs up FS exhaust

Well I finally ordered the FS stealth exhaust and now I am waiting for it to be delievered either between Wednesday and Friday of this week. I can't what untill I have a good weekend of decent weather(living in Michigan kindof sucks this time of the year) so I can install my new exhaust. I hope it goes a little smoother than when I installed my intake and t/b. What problems of difficulties are there when installing the exhaust?

Hopfully over the summer I will have enough money saved to get some headers for the car. Then I'll need to make my mind up on which way I should go shorty headers w/ orp or go with the race headers. Decisions decisions.

The hardest part of ANY exhaust install is removing the old system. After that it's CAKE!!! The FS system was rate the best of all the aftermarket systems out there for ease of installation and quality.

Use a pair of gloves. There are shards or steel that'll cut you wide open and you won't feel it at all. You will, however, SEE it. ICK!!


I wasnt pics!

It sucks I ordered the damn thing a month ago and I have still not recieved the damn exhaust. At first, they said that they didi not have any in stock at the time and that they needed to have some made, I was like thats fine with me b/c being that it is for the spi motor and that seeing the demand for the spi exhaust isn't as high as for the zetec. I have contacted them last firday and they said that they sould be recieving it later that day and they would try to ship it out asap. I guess it's just me, cause I wouldn't have thought that it would have taken over a month to get my exhaust. I'm starting to get a little excited more each day cause the weather is started to get better and I just want to install my exhaust when it finally gets here.

That's not like FS. Did you order it outside of FocusSport?

I ordered directly off of their site. I checked my e-mail and I just got a notice from UPS stating that my package should be arriving on 3-28-05, so hopefully by this monday I'll have my exhaust. Maybe by next weekend, weather permitting, I'll have it installed. The thing that I like about this is that both time that I had e-mailed FS they got into contact with me the next day.

Well if this is that highly rated could you help us other SPI folks out with some pictures, tips & thoughts maybe?
It would be cool to start getting more SPI specific writeups made

I just installed my FS stealth exhaust 2 weeks ago.. and the install was pretty easy. Just make sure resonator is seated properly in the rubber hangers.. I messed up and had it upside down. and the entire system sat funny in all of the rubber hangers.. but as soon as i turned the resonator the correct way, everything fit perfectly under the car. And it sounds great. I just made a 600mile trip in the car and the exhaust didnt annoy me once.. Its great.
