Ok, I'm confused...

I'd really like to get a new exhaust for my 08 Sedan Focus, but I can't for the life of me figure out what the differences are in the ones on FSWerks. Not to mention magnaflow says it only makes one for the Coupe... Anyone have any advice for me?

How do you want to go? Loud tone= race Quiet= stealth. They fit all '03-'11 sedans & coupe's, according to the fwerk's website. If down the road your going to add a header, get the stealth system for sure. They fit great & easy to install also.

That'll work if you aren't going to add a header.

Depending on where you live or nearby in Cincinnati if you run the race exhaust you could be fined up to $500 for noise ordinance. Just wanted to make sure you knew that before getting it lol. Though I doubt the exhaust alone would be loud enough to warrant a ticket, but if you went the header + exhaust route you could pass that magical decibel rating that cops love to pull over lol.

By the way Ben, check out Focus Factor >>Clicky<< which is a local group of people around Cincinnati. Also to let you know, we are having a meet up this weekend and the next weekend and you are welcome to attend.

I'm in Amelia (cops are kinda jerks around here), but I'm not too worried about getting pulled over for the exhaust. I do drive downtown to clifton once a week, however that's during the middle of Friday nights. Maybe I'll look into the stealth one and a new header... I really don't know... But I definitely want to come to one of these meets nearby. I don't know about this weekend with it being in KY (if I was looking at the right one), but I'll request off work for one that's closer.
