I have a Borla and have wondered the same thing. I posted a question on here and was told to buy a silencer from ebay, but they look ugly. Here is what they look like:

Click me

I want something that will fit inside the tip and quiet things down...but I haven't found anything like
that.

Well you guys both bough notouriously loud exaust and now you are saying they are to loud?

I belive some one bunched a whole in a soup can and mounted it in there to fix the issue temp for when he auto-x's on weekend. I belive that it should be an issue to do a good ebay search and find a silencer.

The other oprtion you have is getting a diff tip and muffler, or res. The Borola and the HKS are some of the louder exasut in the mix of ones avail for the focus and many are known to be MUCH quieter.

BTW not all things that serve purpose are pretty, a silencer maybe not be pretty but serves its purpose, you cant just have your cake and eat it to in alot of cases.

if you want the exahust to be quieter i would suggest that you pruchase and install a resonator. magnaflow sells them and they are quite popular for people that want quality parts to quiet there exhaust.

I actually already have that resonator installed and it still seems too loud. I guess one option is to remove the Borla, but I want to try other things before I go that route.

how big of a resonator? i had a 4-2-1 fc header with the svt borla and it was almost too quiet for me. the resonator on the svt borla is, if i had to guess, 30" long and without the header it is almost quieter than stock.

that is a muffler. a resonator is a long tubular looking thing that will go on the straight section of the piping that runs down the middle of the car.

I will have to double check. I posted that out of memory. I know that it is large in size and placed before the Borla muffler.
