I have checked the kspec pics and i have checked under my car and i looks like the tubing will just clear under that unit.

You'll want to ensure that the exhaust piping doesn't come to close to it since it is handling fuel emissions.

Before you order this unit, take a look under your car. Look carefully at the space ahead of the spare tire well, right where the new pipes would connect for the dual exhaust, do you see an obstruction?

I came across this looking into the dual exhaust for the sedan, It's part of the emission control system. Check out this thread on the issue.

Thanks for pointing this out BigE!!!

another small point about this exhaust i saw......
notice where the factory muffler is at (heat shield)
then notice where the 2nd muffler is routed to....not only no heat shield/baffeling material put up there, but look at how close to all of the underparts it gets placed...
not saying i dont want one of these(i do i do)
i just wish they had better pictures of a car that this set up was supposed to be in and mean to last for more than a picture shoot or two.......
i'd hate to be driving down the road only to find my car catching fire due to the muffler.......

Awesome find! The heat shield on the driver side shouldn't be a problem, you can heat wrap the piping from the dual connection to the back of the gasket. I am probably gona get this system, was looking at the Ark performance catback but the video on their page has a deceiving racing header sound so it's false advertisement on their part. Won't sound like that with just the exhaust! Anyone order this dual cat system from Kspec?? Please post a good video of the sound output!! Much appreciated!

I have the Ark exhaust and the video is pretty accurate and they dont make headers for the fortes....they do make a test pipe which removes the CAT but that is optional and makes the car very raspy

I've been looking at this one and the 7ism one for some time, but the custom jobs some folks have done here make me think that goin custom would not only be cheaper, but still get the performance and sound I'm looking for.
