anything that involves removing the cat will result in a very loud car. The cat is responsible for most of the noise reduction on the Focus. I'd say go with the Focussport.

HKS is expensive, but it gives a low tone.

I like to see the pissed off weedwacker exhaust on cars, it makes me laugh. The sound of those high revving spi's is spectacular.
