Well I just picked up some new toys for my focus.

VF Rear motor mount:


Borla Cat-back:




Still waiting to pick up my CFM High Flow Cat...I'll add some pics of that when I get it. The install date is set to next Saturday @ 10am. I plan on getting some sound clips too...but all I have is my digital camera that can record short movie clips so hopefully the sound won't suck. I can't wait, I'm so excited [:)]

EDIT: Here are the pics of the CFM High FLow Cat I just picked it up, they said I'm probably the first one to actually recieve it. Thanks again C-F-M.

Very cool, I liked the Borla that I had on my XR4ti. Quiet at low speeds, and screams up top. The rear motor mount is probably the first thing I will do once all the paperwork goes through and I can pick up my new(er) car.

Looks like you'll have a fun weekend putting everything on. Sound clips would be nice. Hope the install goes good.

Just an update...I got everything installed this morning and I love the sound. I have clip but I'm going to try to get a better one still...and I still have to take the car out a bit more so I can give a proper review.
First reactions, so far are amazing the rear mount really stiffened things up she shifts much smoother now. The borla has a really nice growl and is only a little louder than stock at idle which is what I wanted. The CFM HF CAT fit perfectly, no clearance issues at all, and while I can't give any info on the sound of the CAT with stock exhaust on my Borla it sounds lovely [thumb]

I'll post the clips when I have them uploaded [:)]

MOVIE CLIP!

Well here you guys go...it's not the best clip but it works linky

Enjoy and do leave comments, I couldn't be happier with the products. Big thanks to CFM for the excellent parts, I recommend them to anyone looking for upgrades. After taking the car out for a spin the sound is great...Borla really growls with the CFM HF Cat down low, and up high it screams but not ricey sounding at ALL. The motor mount really holds the car steady and puts the power down, the shifts feel much smoother.

Sounds good to me, you do the install yourself?

Me and my dad did the install together, was much easier with a second set of hands and some air tools [:)]

I bet, just curious if you did the install yourself b/c I'm looking for a decent place in the Orlando area that does exhaust type installs.
