Zetec owners: Exhaust time!

Just thought I would put up a poll and see how many people have what.

If you like, post up what you have and where and how much you paid for it. Sound clips would be a nice addition too if you have any

I have the SVT Borla. Purchased it from McNews Automotive for $400.

Here is my sound clip: CLICK ME (This is w/ a FC race header)

OBX 4-2-1 into a full 2.5" system...Trubendz flex with a Borla SVT...sounds exactly like that clip, makes sense since the FC and OBX 4-2-1 are practically the same.

Magnaflow 2 1/4 with FC race headers, resonator, and flex pipe. Cost me about ~$700
I might be changing the exhaust for a custom exhaust at a local shop or Tom when I decide to buy his turbo ^^ (need money ;-;)
Saving money for a new car ^^
Maybe a 350Z >.>

Bosal 2.25". $300ish @ Newedge.

-Exhaust note w/ stock header + cat
-Stainless Steel
-Fits well
-Silencer avaliable if it's too loud for your liking (though it is one of the more quiet systems on the market).
-Raspy, boomy, and altogether loud (IMO) at higher RPM with an aftermarket cat/no cat.
-Design. I don't really care for the "fart can", but it sounds good so i'll forgive them.
