Tuesdays the day...

Guys! I'm getting my FS Werks Stealth exhaust installed on Tuesday. Very excited. The exhaust is sitting on my floor, and not on my Focus Anywho, I've been researching the exhaust and listening to videos but I was wondering... Can you hear the exhaust over the Steeda CAI at all? Thanks! Sorry if it's been asked before.

^.....agreed. See if they can flip the muffler and place the tip on the passenger side. I recall one member doing it that way.

If it's anything like putting a modified to fit stock ST exhaust on the N/A engine after putting on a Steeda CAI the increased exhaust flow mellowed out the loud intake and the sum was a smoother tone under load as it can breath more evenly all around.

Exhaust is beautiful though, I am very happy with it! Its does bring a very nice sound to the exhaust and yes the intake isn't as loud but I found the combo over whelming, I like loud but it was too much for me.

That's disappointing to know, I've been considering this combo..

Put a silencer in it or some steel wool in it for a while or if you got some change add in a resonator or 2. Or consider a qtp exhaust cut out valve. Just don't close it all the way.

I dont personally own this exhaust but i have rode along in one that does. It also had the steeda intake as well. I cant say what it sounds like under load but just cruising at 45 it sounds great! Even under normal acceleration the combo sounds great! I plan on purchasing this exhaust myself!
