FocusSport Exhaust

Wanted to know which cat-back/muffler ehaust I should get. FocusSport is a trusted website by many on this forum. Was wondering if I should dish out the $299 for their system as seen here: http://www.focussport.com/exhaust.htm If anyone has this ehaust, how is it performance wise, and does it sound good? Or should I dish out $401 on these great sounding MangaFlows as seen here: http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/cat-backs/focus.htm If anyone has any cheaper, or better systems please help me out.

I paid $300 for Mine Brand new on Ebay (Magnaflow) You can feel the HP Gains but for sound Wise you would have to get a Set of Headers to get what your looking for! But a Exhaust by it self you will get a lil hum nothing ricer though.

FJ just had a side-by-side comparison of the major exhaust makers. FocusSport won in fit and finiish, ease of installation, and db rating. I have a Magnaflow myself, but if I had to do it again I'd go with a FocusSport.

Well I have a stock 2003 SE. Dont have enuf cash for headers just yet. But I still want great sound. Is the FocusSport and MBRP California Carb Legal? And will they still sound great without headers? I also noticed the MBRP exhaust says it will fit 00-01 sedans, should they still fit despite mine is an 03? Can someone help me out?

Can anyone get a sound byte of the FocusSport exhaust. I was also interested in getting it but don't like the sound of a little motorcycle or some rice-mobile.

Will FS exhaust sound great without headers? Vass: Thanks for the pictures. I have read the comperison and FS is my top choice right now. But want to do more research on it from people who actually own one.
