Suggestions on a quiet exhaust?
 
Loving my newly acquired svt. Having a terminator and a fox body, I can't believe I slept on buying one of these sooner as a dd. Anyway, I have done some searching on exhaust and have read many opinions w/o a comfortable conclusion. My car is pretty loud with a crazy drone in 6th gear @3000 rpms. My current setup includes an orp and possible a mbrp exhaust system. I'm looking at the stealth fswerks system to replace the catback. I called fswerks and asked a salesperson how loud the stealth system is with an orp and he honestly didn't know.

So:

1) is the fswerks stealth system still bearable with an orp?

2) will installing the factory cat quiet down the as is system?

3) other suggestions?

Preciate the advice!

If you instal a factory cat ill buy your orp. I also might have a cat for sale

Yeah I put an ORP in with stock exhaust and the car became much louder, you put the cat back in that would help a lot.

Looks like I'm going with a cat to see if it quiets things down. Just inspected my orp and its cracked at the seams.

ORP/HFC Will not make a big diffrences its more removing the resonators that an issue. I have the stock muffler and a HFC, I like the sound but cops that go after "tuners" will now pull you over because your focus doesn't sound like any focus they ever heard! Which I am like you I had a 93 Cobra, with Flowmasters America 45 series, louder then my focus ever! But never been pulled over, was with my friend in his 07 GT with Pype cat back stright and a cop pulls me over and not him "laughs"

It appears I have some sort of resonator. It's still loud though. I'm hoping to knock this out in one try. Stock cat vs a catback system. It seems as if it will be easier and cheaper to get the catback.

Funny how my 93 mustang with a procharger and magnaflows sounds like a 747. I've had a few police officers ride beside me and actually give me thumbs up. With the svtf, I'm probably gonna get some unwanted attention. I'm just trying to get to work, lol. I'm even taking off slow to try to keep the rpms down.

He hasn't removed any resonators from the stock system.

He has an MBRP 2.5" SVT catback.

Put the stock cat back on that will quiet it down quite a bit. The SVT's are just loud due to a tuned motor. Some have installed two resonators in the strait section to quiet it down before.
