I chose "custom" in the poll but I'm really running a stock Zetec exhaust manifold, cat, and flex pipe with a stock OEM Ford SVT flex-back system -- picked it up used, all stainless steel, OEM Ford components, sounds GREAT on my otherwise stock Zetec. Great option for non-SVT owners because stock SVT exhaust systems can be found pretty cheap and they sound awesome (check the "For Sale" section of the forum).

I have magnaflow with Focus central header, ORP on one car, Stock on the other, and a 3" Trubendz with Magnaflow on my SVT Turbo!

My ZX3 witht he magnaflow needs a resonator to quiet it down a bit in my opinion!

I had a full FocusSport setup. Long-tube header, flex pipe, and cat-back.

Too loud at anything over 2500RPMs :(

I have been reading a lot of post but no one seems to mention anything about what cat they are using ? Is this because a lot of people are using there stock cat?
