Non ST exhaust

I recently created a thread where I asked if it was worth trading up for the ST and received some good advice and ultimately decided that I am going to keep my 14 titanium sedan until I finish school which will be about a year and a half to two years. I have been dying for some sound out of my car though and have done plenty of research on my options, my favorite is probably the fswerks stealth catback but costs a little over $500, I looked at the lunchbox delete but wasn't too sure if I loved the sound, so I also thought what if I just got an aftermarket muffler but can only find about two videos of that setup. Would love to hear some opinions but once again maybe it would be smart to wait for this too.

I'd say for you the best cost effective way is to have a muffler replace your muffler w/ a Magna-flow.

Have you seen any videos of one? I think the one that I've found was flowmaster.

You'll find the magna-flow is a more popular option on a inline 4 pot....

I had the magnaflow muffler on my last focus and loved it.

A different sound option would be to replace the stock airbox with an RS airbox and high flow air filter like a K&N. Do the snorkel delete while you are at it.

It gives you more sound on acceleration, just coming from a different end of the car.

I love my borla cat-back, but that's more than the fswerks. Haven't really heard an exhaust that doesn't sound good on these.

Cnt racing is 2.5" two small mufflers, very similar to fs werks stealth, but only $375US...great sound and price for 2.5" t304 stainless. its center exit so you could notch out the bottom valence to fit the double tips..its for the ST but mounts the same for se/titanium..the cat flange is rotated on the st but that pipe you can turn and clamp.
