Arrow Catback decision.

so ive been shoping around for some catback systems. and what ive found are:
1. H.K.S hi power exhaust. 55mm. tubing. 96mm tip. fartcan style ~$450
2. B.B.P catback system. 2.25in. tubing. 4.5in. tip - just like lunchbox delete exit. ~$200
3. OBX type R catback exhaust. 2.25 tubing. 4in. tip. fartcan style ~ $250

ive looked up sound clips for all of them on zetec focuses. so far i love the sound of the OBX. the HKS has been cool sounding in some videos but not others. and the BBP is alright but not super cool.

At this point i am probably getting the OBX system.

I would like to know what you guys think? anybody have these systems? any advice or thoughts?

thanks,
Nikolai

Check out www.trubendz.com

I have the Stainless 2.5" Borla cat-back. It sounds really good, and only cost me $360 shipped to my door.

i also have the trubendz 2.5" borla system and i love it. its not overly loud and has a nice deep tone to it. it still bolts right up and it only took me roughly a half hour to do it. that's with a lift though.

I have the HKS you probably heard my clip on youtube. It is very quiet, but it does sound very good when I get on it.

I have been thinking about going trubendz, w/ borla. I have a JayRacing 2.5" ORP and it sounds awesome witht he stock SVT. It will sound even better with trubendz. If only I didnt owe the cops $445 for KILLING a tiburon. lol

Gotta give love to my 2.5" SS Borla catback system. Sounds killer, gets fairly loud when you really run her but man, it's worth every bit of the noise, money and looks when someone asks you what size engine you have swapped under the hood.
