This is the best sounding ST exhaust I've heard yet. I'm still excited to see what Borla comes up with though.

Completely stock with my uncle's tune it puts down 253whp and 323wtq at 2400 rpms, but falls off around 5-6k. The stock turbo sucks, so from a performance standpoint, the intake, exhaust, and turbo need to be upgraded.
That Turbo is Maxxed for sure. Thats why it makes no sense to buy this car in my book (if you already own a mk3 focus). If ford just went a little wilder they could have had the same numbers with a better turbo and a turbo that wont fall flat on its ass from 5000+

The ST and Standard are still to Similar. Saw Fusion Ecoboost AWD yesterday and that makes more sense to me.

Hate to say it but FJ is dieing man. Been a member since '03. Never seen so few posts made. Even the layout has shrunk.

I can see FSW switching teams, but who knows.

You might want to look again because you are incorrect on all fronts.

i go back and forth between the two as well, mainly using FF to check the BST Forum and using FJ for everything. I just like it more because this forum is filled with newbies who don't know anything and are asking basic questions whereas FJ seems to generally have more knowledgeable people. This may be wrong, and I'm not bashing either forum, just stating my opinion. I've learned more on FJ in the last couple years than I have on FF.

The double round tip looks sooooo much better than that weird thing Ford put on there. Yes its part of the design I get it I get it but come on... Double round tips are srs biznuss.
