Mine's in my sig. I ordered Borla but they sent me Magnaflow by mistake; I'm very happy with it regardless. Great tip, great tone.
It won't always win in the 1/4.
It won't win every trophy.
It won't catch every eye on the street.
But it's mine. And it will be done right.

Links say it all. Header will go on shortly.

The magnaflow system has the added resonator, I don't want to sound like a homo.

I picked up the magnaflow unit used with added magnaflow resonator, prev owner has a focus sport and said it sounds like crap and is really loud. I also got a focus sport(or is it a focus central?) header off of him, both for 300$. Not bad at all

http://media.putfile.com/FordFocusfullExhaust if this doesn't work try this one http://home.comcast.net/~kenpokid/Vi...ullExhaust.wmv

SVT Header + RT High flow Cat (really nothing to it, lol, just good for inspections) + Trubendz Flex 2.25 in SS (didnt really fit properly until my dad and I got pissed and just cranked the bolts down, so far so good, no leaks, the gaskets and bolts suck though for quality,lol) + Borla Flex-back. Sounds kinda buzzy when cold, don't really know why, most likely the muffler, but it goes away after the exhaust is warm. I think it sounds pretty good with the Borla (still deep), and it isn't too much louder than just with the Borla at idle or when cruising at 3 grand in 5th. But when you go WOT, you better hang on and listen to the power! I just need an in-car video and some outside burnout shots
