For now I am looking for cheap, quick, and easy. Wow... Sounds like I'm desperate. Anyway, If I decide to upgrade to a full header and exhaust I will most likely try something similar. Will not be for some time if I do. I have to focus on school right now.
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.

This is Version IV , its getting close and looking good
This is a Hydracharger and has been in Development and on 2 Duratec Focus for a few years now and getting close to production
So long story short bolt it broken off on the ac compressor and I'd rather just take it off and bypass it. Is there a belt that would work WITHOUT using a bypass pulley? Would I have to route it differently? Trying not to have to take the motor out and get major work done to it.
So how can I...
