the focus sport exhaust system with the stealth muffler would probably be good choice

Has anyone tried installing a regular glass pack to quit down there beast. It would certainly be cheaper than buying a high dollar resonator, and since it's mounted under the car, who cares what it looks like.

THERMAL:

Stainless steel construction, polished with a quieter tone. Made specifically for the Focus SVT. Will fit both of the SVT body styles. Will not fit the standard Focus.

MAGNAFLOW:

Get that "Straight-thru" performance for your Focus SVT. This 2.5 inch system is a performance replacement for your exhaust. A cat-back is on of the first recommended performance enhancements for your SVT. Fits the ZX3/ZX5 SVT Focus. Will not fit the standard Focus.

BORLA:
This is the system that you asked for! The Borla Cat-back for the Focus SVT. Stainless construction with the classic Borla sound. Will not fit the standard Focus

I would get the thermal as it is the quietest.

Thermal is known for making a fairly loud exhaust.

I would go with the Borla for your SVTF.
