Just got done doing mine. And yes I know it isn't centered and is hanging pretty low. I hadn't figured out a way to hang it but I have it looking good now.

Nah it's the 2.0. And the popping only happens when it is in park. Not sure why, but I am sure someone knows. And when it is in park they aren't too bad but I wish it didn't happen.

when i did that i couldn't even really hear it over my intake, just at low rpm... that video makes it sound louder than it really is. i did get a little bit of a deceleration rumble though.

Yea I have a FS CAI and when I am driving I hear that over the exhaust but for a 15 dollar mod I don't really care. It's only temporary till I get my MRBP exhaust. Can't freaking wait!!!

I don't know if this is any help but, I had a custom catback installed on my Escape (3.0L
Duratec V-6). It was a 2-1/4" w/a turbo muffler that looked just like a glasspack only no glass-just two perforated tubes inside. I told the guy I wanted it to be mellow like a glasspack on a V-8 without the glasspack "cackle". He suggested the turbo and really nailed the sound I wanted. I don't know, however, how one of these would sound on a 4 banger-I know they're different animals! I'm amazed that he duplicated the V-8 sound on a V-6! He specializes in exhaust systems for drag cars.
