New to my focus an am wondering about exhaust and muffler systems. I want one that boosts performance with a deep sound. I don't like whiny sounding exhausts. PLEASE HELP!!

Fswerks has a few options.
I prefer the stealth exhaust, but never bothered to put one on. I am all about looks! [limp]

If you plan on adding a header at some point get the FSWerks stealth, if not, Race exhaust sounds awesome.

trubendz (mandrel exhaust systems) also has a deep sound to it.

If you want to stay away from the whiney "honda-vtec" sounding exhaust, I would stay away from a header.

I have the FSWerks Cold Air intake and the Race Exhaust. The sound on the highway is starting to get to me because our cars are typically at 3000 RPM... it gets a little annoying after a while. I love the sound around town and it does have a great baritone note at idle and with a quick blip of the throttle you can make the exhaust "burp" but not "crackle" like a Vtec engine.

If I were to order again, I would have gone with the FSWerks Stealth Exhaust.

Why you say to stay away from a header? Just get the right muffler/ resonator= no issues. I have a Fwerk's header/stealth hooked to my Borla system. Thats 2 mufflers & a resonator w/ a 2.5'' stainlees steel system.

You still can. ^^^^^^^ Order the stealth muffler.
