4mikebruns I had a no name ebay N1 catcback on my old Base RSX and it worked fine but sat a little low in the mid pipe so i ordered an OBX catback and it sat too high for the muffler exit. (the description said it was for a non type s) Funny thing was if i ran the OBX front section with the ebay N1 rear it fit perfectly and sounded mean as hell.

Juicedz You should've laughed in his face and then walked away. That's an insulting offer and needs to responded with an insulting response.

I don't want a hack job exhaust and he said if they were to do a 2 1/2 or 2 1/4 exhaust it would cost 900$ from the cat back.

So now I'm trying to think about what I should do. I guess I'll wait and see what the Rebel Devil exhaust final price is.

Seminoles It's a good price but for hatch and PZEV you would have to add an extension on the front where the second cat is, no flange on it so would slip on the pipe you cut off between cat #2 and first resonator sure it would be short and on back for a sedan. Looks like chrome pipe and muffler and a cheap turbo one at that wields look like there already rusting. But for the price what the hay...

bnoon I had OBX stainless headers on my old Silverado SS and they were awesome quality and were the easiest headers I've ever installed. Quality was very good. Never rusted, so they aren't using the lower quality stainless at least.

I have the OBX header for my Focus now but just haven't installed it. It looks to be just as good of quality as the ones I had on my Silverado. I looked at the cat back OBX exhaust but ended up going with the MS3 stock cat back exhaust at least for now. Now I just have to get them put on!

That is actually a pretty good idea, I was worried about sound mostly. But if it sounds like stink then I could just replace the muffler! Brilliant!

stclark13 My only concern would be long term issues like rust and noise. Most cheaper mufflers sound good at first and then 5k later break in and sound like crap. I went that route a few times with my subarus and everytime I regretted it. Just my .02
