Oh no, look what I started with my "innocent" question :P

Had to show my wife, who is sitting next to me, the responses. Hilarious read and made me rofl. She just elbowed me for starting trouble. 

Lenny, I genuinely admire your drive and go-get it attitude. I wish I had an ounce of that man :)

:lol: thanks pal
Its good to make people happy and have a laugh yourself,
I'm in work tonight until 23:00 then on an unplanned trip on the road at 06:00 in the morning heading up your way to mullingar at for 08:20 meeting a focus owner whom has purchased the chrome headlights that came fitted to my focus back in 2010
This is going to be a long week lol
Well a tired one anyways

Update:
Got up at 6am today brought the levin up to P.J Souhans in trim co.meath to have the standard JDM Toyota Cat swapped and the leak sorted on the manifold pipe,

These guys work is absolutely quality and after paying 90 euro forr my local mechanic to do a bad job fitting the standard temporary system to get me through the MOT,
I had no option but to travel 148km to the professionals who also fitted the T304 duplex exhaust to the focus

Today i was expecting to have the standard cat swapped out, and leak repaired, followed by obtaining a price on a T305 stainless Cat back system for when i purchased the Varex Remote muffler and sports Cat.

I was like :mellow::huh: :o..:blink::D:lol::P:lol::P:p:)

IMG_20140306_091333_zpscs6lzeq_edit_1394

So now...
I'm in the waiting room,
After choosing a 2.5" Magnaflow back box and slash cut oval tip,
There fitting the standard Toyota cat i supplied then a new Custom built 2.5" T304 stainless Magnaflow exhaust system,
This things gonna Sing!
I've got some pictures to upload but they don't have 2G coverage in this part of the country never mind 4G :lol:
So ill update with pictures later today.

I think, that is subtle enough not to attract the wrong kind of attention, while still retaining it's purpose and fun factor. Souhans do outstanding work and I wish I had the funds to get the exhaust done on my Focus. How was the drive to Mullingar? You could have popped over the hospital where I work to show me the car :P

Thanks mate,
Since christmas theres a green and a white RS rolling around my area,
Mad to see one breaking in Cavan,
Thanks for the link but I've lost all interest in ford at this stage mate,
The Levin has become quite demanding since Christmas no room for spending on the focus,

Next time you are either around Mullingar, Tullamore or Athlone, give me a shout as would love to see either cars you driving. 
That is a very good deal btw for the exhaust given the amount of work gone into it. You think you will hold on to this for a while now or just change it after the NCT? 

As for the RS breaking, real sad given how nice that car is. Wish again I had funds to go get the bodykit off it for my own car :D

Will do thanks,
Ive got the levin nct on the 25th
Ill be holding on to the exhaust but changing the standard cat to a 200 cell but if it increases the noise much more then ill fit the varex back box instead,
This system has no pre-silencer fitted :lol:

Thanks Martin,
One would think its an all time therapeutic process but it is quite stressful at times, especially when mixed with 8 hour shifts and family life the process has been quite intense since Christmas, traveling country wide for parts and services, its my own choice to travel: i know and its fantastic to have all the parts within driving distance but it does tire ya out
Today I'm wrecked tired but working tomorrow to make up for yesterdays over spend :rolleyes:

The exhaust is text book twincam rally style sound with the drone on lay off of the accelerator,
Id call it text book twin-cam sound,
I knew souhans would make it sound like it should because back when Darren (manager Souhans) was a young lad in the 80's the twin-cam corollas were all the rage, aswell as the escorts and the golf,
He grew up with this type of motor and living in county's Louth,Meath or Monaghan the modified scene is a huge culture, since i was 9 living on a country road we would hear the cars coming before we would see it, and there's a few distinctive motors that naturally give that "text book sound" you know without looking at the car Thats a...
Subaru Impreza as you well know :D
Toyota 4AGE twin cam
Mk2 escort
GT Starlet
Vtec Civic
And a few others
These engines naturally have a distinctive sport sound no fake exhaust back box with ball bearings fitted to make it sound good, it naturally had that distinctive tone,
perhaps I'm becoming old now but ya just don't get that anymore,

So now a grown man,
Gimme that country road with sweeping bends and a twin-cam 4AGE engine, brings back great summer memories keep your cds and your stereo im happy out :wub: with the natural sound
Really don't make that anymore and it deserves to sing like it should

I drove up to souhans yesterday on a quarter of a tank,
But i spent half a tank driving home :lol:
"do the hum mama"

Ill get a video up the weekend,
I know a hair pin out the country ill get Vicki to video :lol:
Windscreen washer jets and front headlights to be swapped out later this month aswell as glove box nothing interesting for a while.

just keeping on top of the maintenence...... i agree, old cars should be taken back to their former glory, with with a couple of up dated mods to suit..... id love nothing more than have a mk1 astra gte like my dad used to own back in the day that car was beautiful. my dad bought it from 2yrs old (1984) and was stolen when i was about 8yrs (1990) !Removed! broke his heart never found it thou....  its nice to see/hear about another car re-formed..... well done man

Update:
Reinvested some cash from the sale of the chrome focus headlights and bought a set of badly needed adjustable aftermarket mist type windscreen washer jets on eBay last Monday and they arrived yesterday,
Fitted them today replacing the plastic chrome coated ones that were blocked.

There a little bit more chunky than the ford branded ones but there adjustable in width and height so they do the job nicely.

The old ones were plastic chrome coated,
The chrome coating went blue and began to peel on the inside of the jets, thus blocking the pipes inside the jet,
Would have failed MOT if not changed.
