    I have a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust on my Focus right now, and I just put a new rear bumper on the car from a body kit I purchased, the way the bumper looks makes me want dual exhaust, or at least 2 exhaust tips sticking out.. I was wondering what would happen if I put a Y-pipe on the rear side...
  13. O2 Sensor Problem

    DURATEC Performance (2003-2007)
    So I recently installed a cheap (and I mean CHEAP!) cold air intake on my car. I found it online for around $60 and wanted to see if it made a big difference before I invested money in a quality intake. Well it did make a difference, the car runs great, just a few minor problems. Occasionally...
  14. Rusty Exhaust Tip!!!! Help

    MK1 Focus
    Hi all, I recently moved to Des Moines Iowa and experience the worst winter of my life. During the winter here, my car saw a lot of salt, sand, and snow. It has finally warmed up and I got a chance to look over my car and saw that my catback exhaust has rusted at the tip. It is the brand...
  15. FS Header + 2.5" exhaust afterthoughts........ and oil temperature

    DURATEC Performance (2003-2007)
    Installed the FSWERKS Header and 2.5" exhaust yesterday. Was a surprisingly easy installation. The most difficult point of the installation was getting the stock crap out. The book called for removing the valve cover as well as sliding the power steering reservoir to the side. There was no way I...
  16. Exhaust question!

    DURATEC Performance (2003-2007)
    I just ordered a brand new Magnaflow Cat-Back exhaust for my Focus! I can't wait to put it on, it comes with all hardware to clamp together and bolt on, does anyone know if I should just do it that way, or should I have it welded? I know it is more challenging to weld stainless, and I don't want...

    General Technical Chat
    real quick question, I just got a 1997 GMC van with a 5.7 ltr. I want to make it sound cool but i don't want to put any real money in to it. I was thinking about doing a muffler delete, and just welding in a pipe, is the loss of back pressure going to kill my torque? I am going to keep both...
  19. Removable mods- to get around that warranty issue

    DURATEC Performance (2003-2007)
    So I have a rather moderate plan for modding my new focus laid out, but I put it on hold due to concerns about voiding the warranty. I had wanted a 2.5" exhaust, a new intake, and a lowering kit. And they might all still happen one day- the turbo is in the distant future as well. But that day...
