Possibly looking for some upgrades

Hey guys ... Anyone have the ford racing 18" matte black wheels on their focui ? And I am considering the flowmaster system (not just muffler -- )

Will getting the complete cat back have any noticible boost in performance or am I better off saving $400 and getting a 40 / tip axle back ?

Well I just heard the fswerks race system on YouTube that seems like a winner at $550.

Any performance gains ? I'm about to order it

i had a custom magnaflow set up and it made the world of difference one i added an intake on it. I used the Steeda Cold Air intake with the heat shield. And i had some matte black w/ polished lip enkei j10's on my car as well. If you're looking, send me a PM because I just traded in my fofo for a wrx. now i'm just parting out stuff to pay for more upgrades on the rex.

definitely get the full cat regardless.

man oh man, there are more and more of us popping up in Duval, welcome!

I don't have the FSWerks exhaust yet, when I get it I am getting the stealth version, but I do have their intake and like it a lot, although I wish I would have saved a bit more money to get the Steeda one
