Upgrade Advice?

I'm new to this site, and was looking for some advice for some performance upgrades. I have a 2013 Focus SE hatchback 5speed and want to start by upgrading my exhaust to something loud 'n proud! However, my concern is that my warranty will be voided once I do this which I'm trying to avoid. Is there anyone here who may know a way around this by chance? Thanks!

An exhaust won't void your warranty unless they can prove that it caused the failure of whatever is wrong with your car there is a link to the warranty act there and all mods avalible for the mk3

Goodluck and welcome

Another question: What is your take on the FSWERKS cat? I noticed it was significantly cheaper than Borla, Magnaflow, and Ford Racing...any reason why?

Ummmmmm no , the way that warranty act works is , say you have a header and your engine is knocking , they say it was caused by the header being added and they push it out of the shop , Ford warranty does not have to prove anything other then just saying it was the header

YOU have to hire an attorney and prove that the header didnt cause the issues , good luck with that
