NEVER get universal after looking at one for my focus 1.6 and seeing how akward it would be to fit and weld ect it would be a pain in the arse, i was looking at sportex bespoke ones idealy a "race" cat-back with a 4' jap style tip on. The race part means it takes out the middle silincer box so the car is as loud as you'll ever want and they do it for the 1.4 just have a nose on sh*tbay also be very careful how you fit it and what you choose because joking aside id of thought with a 1.4 the last thing you'll want to do is reduce power lol.

Well done artscot i think he got the message loud and clear in the true scottish way :P but yeah focusdan just save the extra money and get a full proper bespoke system it'l sound louder, be easier to fit and chances are last alot longer. Ironically my mate dan has just had a full powerflow stainless steel cat-back fitted to his peugeot haha small world we live in.
