Not to thread jack but what does this take to do this? I want to but I don't have a welder or pipe bender so I don't want to get in over my head.

I removed both of my mufflers and my car sounds sweet. i got friends who have spent alot of money to try and make there hondas sound "good." but a focus with no mufflers just sounds sexy. its not to loud but can scream when you want it to.

^^^yeah, and overall, getting a true new exhaust has so many other benefits, instead of just sound, but if u just want sound, the ST sound is great.

for the OP, im not sure if it would sound any diff tho, since u have a pzev, but the ST had a fantastic tone, that i loved. i just wanted the benefits of the borla that i got, but it had nothing to do with the sound the ST has.[strongman]

focusboy5, props for using the search to find what you needed on your own.[read][thumb]

^^^but you will most likely not pass emisions.
i think that anybody that is willing to take a saw-zaw to their exhaust to enhance the sound alone is not too worried about emissions ... .. .

edit - lol

does anybody have a sound clip of both mufflers cut off with a glass pack installed where the main muffler used to be?

I am going with different route than the "how to". A 45 elbow to put the exhaust right behind the tire. All together it will be about $20. And the side exit has to be good for at least 20 hp right? J/k. But I like to be just a little different so should be fun. May even move the first muffler closer to the front. We shall see...

^ i tried that before i got the cat back. it looks funny seeing the pipe stick out right next to the spot in the bumper that's curved for the pipe.

Won't really be right next to the spot. I need to look to see if there is room to move the front muffler up then just come out in front of the tire.

while on the side dump topic... i think it would be pretty sweet if you could get the exhaust to dump out from the back of the side skirts like the pre 2005 roush mustangs

What i am thinking minus the tip. Should I bring it all the way to the side so it is visible or leave it nice and hidden?
