Has anyone tried this exhaust system. Price is only $135
http://www.handhelditems.com/0004-fo...-p-119102.html

For that price I am thinking it is worth a try. No real info on their site on who actually made it.

So I was searching through threads on exhausts and I wanted something that is in no way loud or advertising my exhaust, so I was looking at the FSWerks Stealth Exhaust.

I didn't see an option for a version that fit the Wagon on the website. I was also going to replace the headers and do a full header-flex-catback replacement. The exhaust is in rough shape and I would like to put a quality system on so that I don't have to replace it again, as well as maybe a gain of a MGP or 2. I am not doing any heavy mods to this car performance wise.

Anyone have a good header and FSWerks Stealth Exhaust setup that is still quiet and sounds good?

Is there a FSWerks Stealth Exhaust for a (2002 2.0 Zetec) Wagon or do us wagon people just not get any love for exhausts?

I have the stealth exhaust. its got a nice deep tone, but not very loud. its there when you want it to be, but quiet when you want it to be. id say just take it to an exhaust shop and they should be able to extend your piping to make it fit

for a n/a zetec best thing i can recommend is find a used svt setup.. including header, flex, etc.. that's been proven best for our cars..

I've got a 2000 ZETEC that I will be racing on an oval track. We have to have the exhaust exit ahead of the drivers side rear wheel. We can also remove the cat. Is there enough meat left on the exhaust flange to weld on a pipe? I figured I'd use 2.5 inch pipe as that is the max allowable. We don't have to run a muffler but I have a Cherry Bomb and could use it if I wanted to. Any suggestions what will work best for me ???

I bought a cat back 2.5" stainless system from FSWerks in Anaheim. Took the old system off and put the new one in less than an hour. Have the race muffler on mine and it does make a few extra horses. Acceleration from 2nd up to 5th is vastly improved. Ok, at just under $400, not cheap, but you do get quality and fit.

SE exhaust to SVT header

I have a 2.25" Vibrant cat back system on my wagon and want to use the SVT header/cat/flex. Does the SVT stuff fit to non-SVT cat back systems? Is length an issue or is the junction between flex and exhaust in the same place?

alright so i have a few questions. first off if i get a cat back exhaust it should bolt right up to the downpipe right? even if im running stock headers and down pipe. and also i dont need a tune if i just put on a cat back right? and third on ebay they sell ram horn headers which would bolt up to the stock downpipe. so if i buy these i would not be messing with the egr valve, so therefore would i still have to get a tune?

i bought something similar to what your looking at. mine was off of ebay for 110$ with free shipping. just because they cost more doesnt necessarily mean there better. its still stainless steel, bolt on application.
