Well, after two months of waiting for my springs and my exhaust- everything arrived and has been installed. I can't be happier with the results! Next thing will be rims, but that's a couple months off.

Can you take some pics of the underside? Curious how close that second pipe comes to the tire and the sensor box. Also would be nice to hear how it sounds.

Yes, the shop cut the section out of the diffuser. It wouldn't be hard to do if you if you had something like a Saws-All. I was at work so I didn't get to see him cutting anything or doing any major assembly.

Luckily, I showed up at the very end and had to put it back on the lift. So, I was took some pics. The sound is exactly like the other videos that have been posted on here- I can't tell any difference from my car and the videos posted- so I didn't post a video.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I love this car more than any other I've had before, and I had two customized vehicles (paint and everything) when I was a teenager and in my twenties. This is a head turner- people love it.

The best part is that's it's lowered but I have zero problems with it on the road. I love driving this car. All of you understand what I mean :p

Very nice! I'm a little jealous too!:mad: lol! Looks great-would still like to hear it.:p
I see if my digital camera can take a good enough video. If not, then I have to get out the big boy and get it. I'll try to get it soon-- but it's the same as the other videos :)

can you post us the link from where you got your exhaust ?
I went to a tuning garage here in my town and they ordered it for me. They went to some supplier on the internet, but not sure who they ordered it from. Everything is in Korean, so I have to have people help me when I get something done-- major pain in the butt!

Here is link with the same product- I know you can order it from them. Not sure on the price though.

I love what you have done!
Thanks Blkkoup, I appreciate that.

Looking at his pictures of the underside, it would appear that the Fortes in Singapore have the emissions module (the one you are concerned about) up over the axle.

Anyone in North America thinking of doing this exhaust need to look at this thread: http://www.forteforums.com/forums/performance-modifications/751-7ism-exhaust-fote-koup.html

I was looking at doing the dual exhaust on my sedan and now I need to get this unit relocated so I can proceed.

Sorry, I've been really busy with work this week :( However, I'm now free from work until the first of September :)

Now for good news and bad news- I went out tonight and used my camera to get videos of the exhaust sound and that turned out great. However, because of some stupid law here in Korea, I can't up-load the videos on youtube and if I try to load the files directly from my computer then it says invalid file. Sorry, don't know what else to do- any suggestions?
