2009 Ford Focus SE Coupe - Exhaust - Resonator Delete
Had the resonator removed on my Focus today. It's the one that was right
behind the tail pipe. The setup is now essentially what Ford calls their
"sport tuned Exhaust", used on the
Focus coupes with 5sp manual transmission. You can hear the difference on
start up, adds a little grumble. Not as noticeable while in the car...you
hear it more when standing behind. Great cheap mod though...only $42!
Focus ST Borla Touring Cat-Back Exhaust Installation 2013-2014
This Borla Touring 2-1/2" Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System can help you find that perfect
sound for your 2013-2014 Focus ST. It bolts to the Exhaust pipe with the catalytic converter and
runs the whole way out the back of the car. The Touring style muffler sits
at the back of the car and is hidden by the rear bumper.
For installation, begin by removing your original stock Exhaust system. Then, follow Bill's step-by-step
demonstration to install your new Borla axle-back Exhaust. Total installation should take an hour.

The Ford Focus, doesn't exactly ooze forecourt appeal, but it has always
impressed out on the test drive.
However, having a great chassis isn't enough these days. To impress people,
a modern family hatchback has to be stylish, economical, luxurious and
packed full of the latest technology. And the MK3 Focus was starting to
feel a bit lacking in these areas.
That's why Ford has given the Focus one of the most extensive mid-life
updates in history, while retaining the same starting price of £13,995.
The most obvious change is to the looks. The car now gets the Aston
Martin-esque grille and sleeker headlamps like the Fiesta. The rear has
been given similar treatment with new bumpers and new light clusters.
There's a punchy new 1.5-litre turbo
petrol which can return over 50mpg and a 1.5-litre diesel which can do
74mpg and emits under 100g/km CO2 so is free from road tax.
The existing 1.0-litre EcoBoost
petrol, which is one of the best, if not the best engine of its kind on the
market is still available, too. In higher power 125bhp guise it has just
about enough performance for a car of this size and Ford says it can do
One of the biggest challenges ford has faced with the Focus was trying to
make it feel as upmarket inside as a Volkswagen Golf. All but the entry
level car has a new 8-inch touchscreen system which not only looks good,
but is easier to operate than the old system which had a confusing array of
buttons. There's also the new SYNC system which has a much better array of
useful voice commands and is easier to use.
Refinement has been improved, and the suspension has been changed to make
it more cushioning over bumps. The steering is slightly sharper over the
previous model, too.
So then, as before the Focus is a car which will impress on the test drive.
Importantly, the improvements to the looks, technology, economy and the
quality, are clear and so the new Ford Focus is now more likely to impress
people on the forecourt too.
9 year old's reaction to first drive in Ford Focus RS MK2
As I explain in the video, I recently bought a Ford Focus RS MK2 in
Ultimate Green. My little brother (9 years old) is a massive petrolhead,
and I kept the new car as a secret from him, this was his reaction from the
first time we went out...
