Finally had a chance to record this Saturday while at the NASA track day with the Focus guys. Don't mind the loose hangers, I'll get that taken care of soon. Let me know what you guys think.

I just noticed that the "starter problem" can be heard when it starts. Listen for it for about 1.5 seconds after it fires up, you can definitely hear it not disengaging properly...

Yep - sounds raspy and unrefined. You need some resonation.

Sounds like mine before the headers...Say No to Resonation:)
If your driving it every day then get resonators cause it will drive you crazy...But since my car gets maybe 1500 miles a year on it I like the rumble when I drive it
I had the same setup when I first did my exhaust. I had it on there for less than a week, and I yanked it and put my stock exhaust back on, until I could find some resonators.

I felt like a hillbilly. It sounded like a pickup truck wiht a big hole in the muffler.

To me, that truck-tip exhaust just sounds like a stock setup with a copious exhaust leak. Nasty.
