My buddy has an 03 Zetec with a muffler so rusty you need a tetnis shot just looking at it. Doesn't seem to affect the car too much though, and this is a great opportunity to install an aftermarket exhaust system.
Straight pipe only where the muffler used to be (I'm guessing the front one is the resonator and the back one is the muffler?) Sounds pretty good, and a lot cheaper than a new muffler. No cat back or anything fancy, this car is just a daily driver.
mine's a daily driver too. nearly 170 hp daily driver with nitrous. just because its a daily driver doesn't mean you cant mess with it. besides, putting performance parts on the car isnt just to make the car faster. its also to make it more efficient lol. well thats always been my excuse to the little lady when i buy a new shiny for the fofo and not for her
