I was looking into the fswerks turbo kit. I think it was fswerks, and I'm gonna be 300 hundred short.
My school refund is gonna be 300 short! I'm sad. If I woulda had enough I woulda got it with all my money lol. But since I can't I'm not gonna worry about saving, cause I TECHNICALLY could spend it on more important things but oh well. Still get an exhaust with it.

David i suggest you go with an Fswerks exhaust. They are both nice, the race is quite a bit louder. A local has the stealth - it sounds great and still screams under hard acceleration

I was looking at those last night too. And checking them on YouTube. I do like the stealth. I've always had really loud vehicles, I want this one to be chill unless I make it scream lol.
And what's a good header and cat to get? I need to replace my entire exhaust.

I need to eventually upgrade to a 3" after the downpipe. Right now I have a 3" DP and 2.5" the rest of the way.

Probably gonna go with this one since I already have the 42DD downpipe.. sooooo hawt.

In my opinion, the best bang and sound for your buck would be to get an SVT header (which means you would also need a tune), 2.5" ORP and a 2.5" Borla cat-back. Best exhaust note for SVT's, and would sound mint on a standard Zetec as well.

I have the fswerks stealth on my sedan with the svt header/cat/flex and it sounds like car porn whenever i mash the throttle. Theres a spot in wkgn where the buildings are close to the road, i like to lower my windows and listen to the echo off of them as i pull around the corner.

I remember when I went to the Indycar race at the mile this past summer, gunned it coming off the highway as i went under a bridge and scared the crap out of a pedestrian on the sidewalk. dude practically jumped out of his shoes.

I lile my Borla. It's loud, but not too loud. I'm almost getting bored of it, so i'm opening up the airflow with a 2.5" flex.

I gotta hear that sedan lol

Me too, love the Borla. I'll probably want to get it a bit louder one day, maybe HFC or just go ORP if I get brave. Or just wait until it gets warmer again so I can roll the windows down lol.
