Tune or Exhaust

Lets say you could have do one upgrade, you could either get a Tune or you could get a new exhaust.

You have a 2013 Focus SE (automatic), you have done snorkel delete and k&n filter, you have the RMM Insert and Steeda Sway bar.

Do you leave it as is?
Do you go for exhaust, get the nice sound upgrade and maybe power increase?
Do you go for tune, no visible or sound upgrade but a little more performance.

Tune for sure. exhaust on a grocery getter 4 banger is kind of silly and you wont notice a difference. Youll feel a tune

If you're wanting an exhaust and a tune, you'll probably end up with both eventually. Either get your exhaust first and tune second, or go with Tom's tune first so you can get free updates with future power mods.

If you plan on doing both: I'd get the exhaust, then get the tune.

If you can only have one mod: Tune!

When you say exhaust, does that mean a flex back? or what? Header?
