I bought my T304 stainless 2.5" Dpf back duplex from piper exhausts through ebay,
Comes ready to fit, you just need to purchase some ST exhaust brackets and rubber mounts,
424.95GBP exc. Delivery and mounts
Worth every penny imo but all depends on personal taste weather you want a single exit or duplex,
I got it fitted by a local custom exhaust specialist for 50.00 GBP

I´m gessing that you already have the de-cat. Is the same size as the Petrol? 

 

and manifolds? still standard?

My manifold is standard and will need to stay that way due to the design of the turbo flange on the 1.6TDCi
The focus has an all-in-one can system containing both DPF and Cat,
I'm considering DPF removal including Cat, but keeping the can in place to look like its still their thus being able to pass a visual inspection on MOT,
A decat diesel engine is cleaner than one with a Cat alone, and no noise difference,
Diesels don't get raspy like petrols, instead the growel like a V8

Here is an image of the dpf/cat leading from the manifold to a flexi downpipe and on to the 2.5" system.

I was asking about the meassures because as far as I know the de-cat is just a pipe but if I buy one for the RS may not fit on my standard manyfold.

Ok mate,
A sports cat has a filter inside but a de-cat like your talking about is just a straight through pipe, designed to replace the existing cat.
Since your focus is a diesel no petrol exhaust parts are compatable with diesel and the same for petrol engines.

Your best and cheapest option would be to get a custom exhaust shop to manufacture/shape a straight through 2.5" stainless pipe from manifold to flexi,
Then a 2.5" flexi to the rest of the exhaust system,
A decat pipe for a petrol model won't be any use to you as the diesel cat is n a different location compared to diesel models.
And here is an image of the 1.6TDCi flexi pipe you would be best upgrading to 2.5" to match the rest of the system,
Please note this flexi from a 1.6TDCi is a differen design to that on an St or Rs

Goto to MIJ Performance in Walsall and get a complete custom system to what ever spec you want.
