For cheap and good sound i first did the ORP & deleted the box at the tip & added a 4 inch tip, sounded real good.

But since then i added Magnaflow and dual's..

DO NOT GET TRUBENDZ. i bought one as my first exhaust. it fit like crap, and stuck out way to far.

The best thing to do would to be get a FSWerks Stealth with stock cat. if you want more sound, get a HFC.

I currently have an ORP. It has been LOUD with the 3 different exhausts I have had. and really raspy. I have HFC on the way. I should have gone with the HFC to begin with.

There are youtube videos of the stealth on an svt with stock cat and it sounds good.

Friend got it as well, very good quality and sounds awesome!

Borla has the sound you're looking for. I have the real Borla kit (non Trubenz) with the resonator, muffler, and tip. The fit was perfect and I love the sound. I might go HFC later to get it a bit louder.

do not buy trubendz borla. it is no where near the same sounds as the real Borla. So unless you can find a ford borla. go with FSWerks for the best sound.

The "real" Borla was the best sounding exhaust I've ever heard on a focus.




As for Trubendz some have had great fitment and others not. It also depends on the what it's going on, the sedan exhaust is a little longer than the hatchbacks exhaust.
