Talking Got the catback...and happy I did!!

Well today, I decided to take the plunge. I was not happy with the sound my exhaust had after I removed the resonator a couple of months ago. Since I live in Ft lauderdale, I took the car to Steeda. Great service and everithing was done quickly. After talking to the guy, I decided to go with the Magnaflow catback. I had it in my old 00 zetec and loved the sound then. Since I am not going with F/I, I decided it will be better to keep the exhaust at 2 1/4.

Plus the price was right!!!

Well Love the sound now!!!
Well balanced, low grunt and looks great!!

The car DOES perform much better. I do feel a better pull on the car.(maybe is my butt-dyno) but it feels better than before. The original SVT catback brought 2 mufflers and a big ass resonator, so this is an improvement.

The combination of the catback and the removal of the snorkel gives the car an awesome sound.

So in other words.

I like it, A LOT!!!

good deal, glad you like your new exhaust, the magnaflow is a nice cat-back. I personally am going with a R/T cat instead of a cat-back.
