Cant decide on exhaust options

I cant find an exhaust i like it seems like. Im almost considering just getting mufflers since i cant find an exhaust that sounds aggressive enough for me without that whiney noise... suggestions?

have you checked out the fswerks stealth? i was kind of in the same boat. Didnt want a ricer sound but also didnt want something that sounded like a 60s muscle car... it is a Focus after all. I like the sound of the fswerks stealth, also like the idea of the tailpipe being moved to the left side vs the right side.

I'm thinking about doing a custom dual exhaust. Maybe I'll do a custom st exhaust I like the way that looks.

I have always been a fan of borla but that was with my mustang. Completely different lol

will switching to a Y pipe and making it dual and throwing like some magnaflows on there give me worse mileage/performance/sound than before? opinions?

Aggressive. Non-whiny. Delivers real power.

i like that, 2 questions, whats the difference between the stealth and race exhausts for fswerks, also do i have the option to put a single larger tip on rather than the 2 polished tips? i know that part of it would have to be aftermarket but would it take away any power/sound?

thoughts?

There is no functional difference between the Stealth and the Race other than the Race sounding louder/meaner. You can change out the tip freely with one of your choosing and it shouldn't have any effect on performance or sound.

I've never heard it person but I've heard reports that the fswerks can get droney.... so keep that in mind.
