To be honest you can try to setup a flowmaster system, but most of us would highly recommend FSWERKS. Just because they're parts designed specifically for our foci and most of us are running race headers and stealth exhausts. Great setup, will cost you a pretty dollar but it's worth it. Do what I did, buy the race exhaust first. Enjoy it, if you want more sound buy the race header. *NOTE* if you get a header you're gonna want to buy a resonator to convert your exhaust into stealth (from what I hear race header and race exhaust is too loud/raspy).

I plan on using a Flowmaster DBX when I do my exhaust. I don't like the way the FSWerks sounds and it is way too pricey.

Have you price checked? lol
The flowmaster DBX are $150 the same price as the fswerks stealth muffler.
