Well.. I have nothing to say about the coffee can.

But I will say this. Awesome video on youtube with the strobes and glow. GREAT idea to mount them in your front grill signal lights... looks AWESOME! I have mine in my reverse lights, and my headlights.

As for the coffee can.... Meh. Its your car man, don't let anyone hate on it.

I COMPLETELY understand the lack of money. I know where you are coming from on there. But, let me just make a suggestions. SAVE. I know how hard it is to save up for somethingyou want to put on right away, but trust me... its worth it in the long run. WHat you save on install costs, etc... might add up to be a nice contribution towards a real full exhaust system, like a borla, magnaflow, or MBRP.

Patience is a virtue. I am still trying to learn it, though. Not trying to offend, just making a suggestion.

The lunchbox delete mod is more for sound than anything else, I did it and it was cool
then I ended up getting the focus sport exhaust like 3 months later.

knock yourself out and enjoy the added sound.

I would think that the tip would be loud enough. With the muffler gone i would think it would be really loud. I would just try the tip first and see how you like it.

Why spend the money if you're going to get 0 performance out of it? I just don't see the point when you could be patient and get what you want the first time. Much like people who get springs without shocks...makes no sense to me...

N2O Focus its a weld on one and i dont have a welder i hooked it up just with a exhaust clamp and it didnt sound much deeper than the damn lunchbox mod so i asked the guy i know he said that if i run no muffler the tip will do the deal of the muffler and it would not be as ricy sounding when i get on it hard. so we will see and heres my optiion i spent 26 on a tip and maybe 40 for labor 66 dollers compaired to the exhaust 300+ dollers and about 70 to install it and if it sounds good ill keep it if not ill just live with it until i get 300 dollers and its not like when im done witht he tip i cant cut it off and sell it to a friend or something.... people laff cause its not a performace mod well the only real way i would put a whole new system on is with a header cause than u have to do the same job 2 times even though the exhaust you already have.... so for 66 dollers ill see and if i dont like it ill say to my self i wasted money and if i like it i will be a happy man..

Well just remember there is the cost to cut out the muffler and weld in a new piece of pipe. It just seems to me that if you take out the muffler you will get a lot of exhaust pressure into the tip and it may be really loud like a boat. You could look for other tips that might be louder if you can find any others. Also this could possibly make your car run worse due to the lack of back pressure, just a thought.

hey, what exactly do you have on your exhaust at the moment..how manymufflers, cats, pipe size.....

is the tip you are getting one of those resonated tips??

also , try to look around at local muffler shops to have a custom exhaust bended for you.

i had my exhaust made here for about 120 bucks or so..thats catback with muffler...they only charged like 50 bucks for the piping to be crush bent(too bad its not mandrel) and then they charged for the muffler. just a suggestion
