Exhaust questions
 
I've been thinking about installing a exhaust on my focus but I'm wanting something fairly loud but also don't want to sound like a honda. I notice a majority of people around here that are installing aftermarket exhaust is going with FSWerks and I was wondering how hard is it to install and what kind of tools are needed?

I notice there is also a lot of people that say the race exhaust is ricey sounding It's hard to tell from a video but on their website the only difference I hear between the race and the stealth is the race is a bit louder is that really the only difference?

Firstly, search is your friend. You don't need anything more than some wrenches, maybe a saw (for the stock exhaust) or an airgun to make it easier.

I wouldn't say the FSWERKS Race kit is ricey at all. I'm sure most who say it haven't ever heard it in person. Bear in mind most videos on youtube use not-very-good recording equipment to capture some pretty loud sounds. I have the Race catback, and did a couple of videos of it.

The first post i didn't realize it was technically the wrong forum.

Thanks for the video RedComet it helps to clarify what it actually sounds like.

I have the Magnaflow 15138. From what I gather from Youtube videos, it's quieter than the FSwerks systems, but I like the tone better I think.
