Still trying to find out if the Stealth muffler is noticeably quieter than the Borla...

It's all personal opinion on sound. I like the way borla sounds personally.

the "stealth" part of that exhaust is a magnaflow resonator in the center long pipe section.


it is a little quieter than the borla. but the borla is better quality, and has a million mile warranty.

^what he said. You can have a Borla muffler and add a resonator and it will be fairly quiet like the "stealth" exhaust.

The SVT focus gets loud fast with an aftermarket exhaust, I went with the quietest one I could get, its a magnaflow setup with 2 resonators, 2 BIG resonators, and it still is pretty loud, especially on the expressway.

With a loud exhaust doing any long road trips would be very tiresome, the sound of that drone for hours really takes its toll on you. The Magnaflow setup I have is boarderline too much, some days I wish I hadn't taken the stock exhaust off, but it does sound flipping awesome.



I have heard the FSwerks Race exhaust, the car in question I was able to hear for over a good mile away, and in the car you have to shout at each other to have a conversation, pretty lame if you have your buddies with you or your girl in the car.

Exactly Borla has the best tone to it. Mine is nice and deep at idle and great tone all the way up the power range. At idle nice and deep. I have the Borla XRS muffler on mine. Look into that one.
