1 HP at the most..

It will only give you more gains, if the Flex pipe is the LAST piece you replace, for your complete exhaust system..

Most of all, it just smooths out the flow of the exhaust.

500!!!! That explains the tire melting power whenever I touch the gas. Some poor geek in a 360 Modena tried to catch me this morning.. not a chance.


I don't know... after I install my early 2k intake manifold I'm going in for another Dyno run... I have a feeling this thing is worth more than rumor says.

Before if I went WOT next to a highway divider I could hear more of an air-rush noise from the exhaust than the exhaust note itself. Now if I try the same, I get more exhaust note, and less air rush noise.

It is subtle, but definately present.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yes, I'm well aware of that, which is why I mention seat of the pants. A butt dyno is not nearly adequate, but I'm not going to spend $75 for another dyno run after a $100 mod... When I'm all done with the limit of H stock mods, I'll go for another dyno pull or two.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">It should be.. It is after the cat, so it shouldn't change emissions characteristics.

Basically it just completes a cat-back exhaust.. which on a Focus isn't really cat-back.

Last night I installed the FocusSport flexpipe in addition to my Magnaflow exhaust. No header, stock cat. (Can't change them)

The tone of the exhaust definately got a little bit deeper, but I SWEAR that I have a little seat of the pants power improvement.

How much could this thing be worth? Is 2-3hp possible? It sure seems like it!
