    As my good Pal Stuntdoogie has mentioned it is a one peice unit i had to cut off right before the axel.
    The black bracket was removed and I added washers to shim it out for now plan on taking a look at it in a few days to weeks if it isn't rubbibg and banging . If it does then I will look at other options including removal. But right now with a couple of washers to shim it out it gives about a 1/4 inch or so clearence and has not rattled or banged during driving..

    Here is a trick a old rally driver showed me to stiffen up a exhaust system, stops the flex mounts breaking too. 7.6mm cable ties by the way.

    If we get a chance tommorow I'll see my girl will go for a snowy ride though the sound may be off due to mother nature muffling the sound....

    Thanks. Didn't know they made those. Thought about making my own for a few years with my 2011 but never did. For $29 it certainly isn't worth the DIY effort. Could you post some pics of the mount in a Fiesta?

    Ugh....can barely hear the exhaust with all the crackling. I was able to hear the third pass a little better than the first two tho. Thanks for taking time from your very busy schedule to film this and your lady also.

    You are welcome perhaps once it thaws out we can try again . but that is about all the noise it makes not too overpowering and yet better sounding and feeleing than stock... won't call the popo at 2 am for ya ;)

    OK... I'm sold! Out of all the exhausts this is probably my favorite. Love the deep sound. How much hp and torque would you say it added by seat of the pants?

    Roddy I apologize, i listened with headphones this time and can now hear the exhaust much better than from my phone's speaker o_O
    Sounds really nice but still would like to hear wot once the snow clears :)

    If you watch the vid you can bet I have not got a clue cuz of massive wheel spin in the snow and even in the dry on my little skinny snow tires ;) plus I have had the pipe on only a few days and have not gotten to drive it much as life has a way of horning in on my so called free time .. I love the sound and burble as you coast down in gear .The little I have driven it, it get loud as you get over 4k but not to the point of spliting your ears then when cruising it is as good as stock till you roll on the gas... I will try to get some better runs as the weather should be warm and dry off the roads I hope..

    So would you say at interstate speeds it would be about the same, a little louder or much louder at 70-80mph?

    I would say its the same though a lil deeper tone If you look at the vid I posted in post #53 this thread at the 49 second mark I am saying the speed "about 80 mph" and about the 1:00 minute mark I mention "6th gear 3K rpm" and the sounds it all road noise with a hint of exhaust as I am off the sound symposer by then it I was on it at all.
