    I suppose it could be in the Classifieds, but I think it's of general interest as well, being a prototype.

    "Also its for a focus."

    Ah, I didn't notice that. I wouldn't have posted if I had.
    The production Escort part is a fair bit more money.

    The price from Mandrelexhaustsystems.com is actually pretty cheap for a system. Also, you do know that you can get really sick from welding galvanized metal right? Also, don't types in all caps, it makes you look like a noob/retard.

    The EMT tubing might be okay if one took precautions while welding, but I think the zinc would quickly burn off with exhaust temperatures. Plus it's really a lot of work making a snaky exhaust system.

    I can confirm. I built a system from stainless mandrel bends in my driveway, it took a long time and still didn't fit a well as I would have liked. My brother currently has it on his ZX2. I've welded some galvanized pipe before for a small project and even with the visible zinc ground off it still makes the white stuff. I don't think I would do it for a project as big as a full exhaust.

    The pipe you sold me from your wagon fit perfectly.

    The only thing I had to change was to fill in where the glasspack was. Other than that it was pretty much a bolt in affair.

    Thanks!

    I paid $488 for my Navigator's Magnaflow cat back and that was a bargain. They're over $660 now.

    I'm looking at $730 for the F-150 version of the same Magnaflow cat back.

    $310 only sounds expensive because the car wasn't. I'd add $75 for the stainless steel though. That still makes it cheap.
