FOCUS PERFORMANCE has the J B A. 2 1/4 inch mandrel bent stainless steel tubing with a highly polished tip, for $350.
MBRP also has one for the wagon!

Thanks guys. Guess I will now try and see if any of FJ's sponsors carry these exhaust systems.

Hay Hi-Risk I don't know how far you plan on building your car, but you may want to try having your 1st Exhaust resonator removed. It is a good and cheap mod, keeps $$ on your pockets for other go fast goodies!

Out of curiosity, what is the difference between a sedan and a wagon as far as exhaust goes?

The Wagon Needs a Longer Exhaust because of it's Increased Body Length

No no no!! Please spend the cash on a good exhaust system. If it's power you are going for spend the cash. It it's just sound then I can see your point.

I would! Then you could call it "custom."

Before having this mod I could not spin the wheels from a dead stop, yes I have an auto. After doing this I could spin them, not 100' or anything, but a little is more than I could do before!
If you notice my signature you will see that I have only spent around $250 on mods, but the difference in driving the car is big for the money spent. I'm not trying to make a race car out of my wagon, just trying to make it more fun to drive.

all the exhaust systems for the focus are the same right up until the last piece. the final piece that runs from the rear suspension back is different given the length of the car. so basically anything can be made to fit. hell, UltegraSTI custom fit a wagon exhaust to his ZX3 with a little cutting and welding. of course if you can go with one that's already good to go like the FS, Bosal, Borla, MBRP, or the such.

Actually guys, I'm looking for a friend of mine who has a wagon.

I've got a ZX3 and it already has some mods on it...yet it's still slow!


My friend (who has no online access btw) wants to start modding his wagon, because he wants more power out of that thing...that's all.


*btw, the wagon is an auto.


As for length of exhaust system, from what I've been told, the ZX3 exhaust system is different from the wagon ones.

It is said that the sedan exhaust systems and wagon exhaust systems are the same. Is that true? Can someone confirm this?

go to a shop and get a custom system put on. It is cheaper and less hassle. I have a magnaflow muffler with 2.5 inch pipe. It is real sedate yet tough sounding.
