I've got an 18" Magnaflow and a 12" Vibrant. Sounds great, as quiet as stock cruising
I'd love to hear how your exhaust sounds, bro. I'm looking for some low cost ideas to increase my exhaust tone a little, and this sounds like a great setup. :) Do you happen to have a video you could post up? Thanks!

Juicedz You guys with the Flowmasters should dyno your cars and send the results to Sonic with a mod list. The dyno thread in the sticky section has been rather quiet for the last 4 or 5 months.

tpdwolf I've been running a Flowmaster Force II cat-back for several months now. Very little drone @ cruising speed - nice throatish rumble when accelerating, not obnoxious or overly loud and certainly does not sound like a rice rocket. little to no improvement mpg wise, but "feels" peppier/livelier on take off - doubt I would win many races, but then again that's not why I chose the car/exhaust system.

2012 Focus Titanium hatch, Green drop-in air filter w/ open end cone, Flowmaster Force II cat-back 2.25" exhaust.

Flowmaster for my 2012 hatchback

I opted for the Flowmaster Force II Cat Back system for my 2012 SEL hatchback. (about $550.00). Put it on myself with the help of a friedn in about 2 hours. Nice low rumble at highway speeds, only loud when you stomp on it.

Raceredrudy I have a Flowmaster 40 on my 2012 and have fellow focus owners they never heard an exhaust so perfect ....

mustang0 Why 1/4", because if you do the math going from 2.25 to 2.5 inch pipe you gain 1 square inch of surface area.

Why spend money on 1/4"?

I'm investigating exhaust. Seems like a lot of money to spend for 1/4 inch, so I'm going 2.5 or stay at home. Also, I'm thinking Manifold back with a high-flow cat.

Come on sonic join the 2.5"+ crew much better difference over factory 1.75"-2" also remember the wider the pipe the deeper the exhaust note.
