I got Focus sport exhaust and love it. Althought it only has a 2.25 and doesn't offer the 2.5 dia. exhaust like most have on here. I was my first mod and was cacke to install my self.

I love my Trubendz exhaust. The only complaint is that the install is tough due to basically an improper bend in the muffler pipe and the tailpipe hanger being improperly placed causing it to rub on the bumper. Common problem too. I myself and several others had these exact problems with theirs. After much cursing though you can get that improperly bent piece over the rear subframe and then it fits fine. And the hanger you can just bend in a vice to make that work. After it is on though it sounds soooo nice. Love it.

TruBendz FTW. [thumb] Didn't have any issues with the bend in pipe. Just those two hangers were very minor issues.

89$ is just for the flexpipe, you'll also need to purchase that $400 part too [clap]

it's cool. should i continue f%#$ing around with these rinky bolt on's, or would it be best to go balls deep with a turbo? or should i build up the engine first, then go turbo?

Well even with FI you would need a good 2.5 exhaust kit. And even if you didn't go that route 2.5 is fine for NA as well. Depends on what you want outta your car.

And if you did you FI, personally I would build the bottom end first. The rods are fairly weak and yeah they can handle the Focussport stage 2 but for how long is my question. Personally I would just beef it up in there first just for my own peace of mind.
