Need Exhaust System Recommendations

The longer I own my car the more the stock exhaust system is bothering me, just does not measure up to my expectations for a Titanium level trim in my opinion.

So I looked around, seems like there is a lot of options for exhaust. I want something that will not be a fart pipe but have a good sound. Also that will look close to OEM if Ford did it like they should have.

I have seen that some have modified their valance for a dual exhaust set-up, this would not be a problem but I am not sure I want to get into buying a valance that needs painted and etc at this time.

I also do not want to throw on an exhaust tip, I thought about this but I do not like the look since it's not cut into the lower valance.

Are you looking for performance wise or just for a nice tone.

If you want performance I'd say go with fswerks, if you want something more for sound with some performance gains get magna flow.

Can't go wrong with FSwerks exhaust system, both the stealth and race are very good.

I want a nice tone, no ricer fart pipe sound or coffee can hanging off the back.

I like this sound and the dual exhaust set-up, but it appears to be a custom Borla deal.

Fswerks is definitely not ricer fart style lol. Also doesn't have a can sticking out the rear. Id suggest the stealth kit they offer , race is muuuch louder

Quite easy , hardest part will probly be removal of old piping , also fswerks uses stainless so it wont rust ! Very well made product .
