Go to there web site find your local dealer and order one might have to rotate the connector on front the ST in a few degrees different.

Milltek is expensive... Very good quality, and the price to show.

magnaflow and fswerks = ricer?
Keep in mind you won't get the sound from the turbo, but otherwise that'll sound nice, kinda like the magnaflow and fswerks kits available already

Mine sounded like that then I put the muffler back on bwahahahah. J/k I would guess that system uses less muffler more open pipe with the resonance properly tuned out.

You have to remember a turbo will absorb lots of sound so the same system on a n/a car will be louder I believe.

Stock ST catback exhaust modified to fit an N/A 2.0 L GDI engine in my old Focus SEL with the Steeda CAI kit.

Sounded louder/ deeper on the n/a due to the 12:1 compression ratio and lack of a turbocharger to help muffle the exhaust.

The ST exhaust only has two mufflers and no resonators like the base car.

The DCT dropped about 3 gears and raced to redline at that point, but yes it sounded amazing when pushed, yet was near stock quiet when just cruising around.

The flange is rotated around 45 degrees on the ST relative to the N/A so the front section had to be cut and rotated to adjust the muffler up into the exhaust tunnel, but otherwise it was nothing a proper exhaust shop couldn't handle.
