I wanna know how much deeper or louder the exhaust would be on the svt with borla. vs. stock svt tuned exhaust. It will definetly have a different tone right? Im looking for more attention. It just doesn't rev loud enough when i want it too.

The offroad pipe from www.focus-central.com makes it much louder! My wife quit ridding in my car! For some that might be incentive to install it!

Also makes 10HP and 7to8 pounds of torque...

Well worth the $200ish you pay for one!

I took mine off and sold it for $190 after shipping... Nothing wrong with it.. So I lost $20.00! No big DEAL to me and someone else got it for $20.00 off!

Fits fine, seems to be no lower than the stock cat. It actually sounds very good once the car warms up, but sound like crap when it is cold. I think ORP + Borla might be the best bet. Funny thing is, my wife likes it and we are in our 40s so go figure.

Also I upgraded my sound system alot, so if I don't want to hear the ORP or my wife for that matter, I just dial up the volume. ...Steve

Everyone I know with a SVT and Borla exhaust love it. Haven't heard a complaint yet.

Hey I wonder if it's possible to post a sound sample of exhaust systems on the 'net? Never heard a Borla exhaust on a Focus.
