Sounds good!

I just did drop in filter and snorkel delete then added a tune and Magnaflow cat back. It all comes together with the tune, pulls hard and drives great! For my last mod, I will be adding an OBX catless header in a few weeks.

Intake and exhaust alone should get you to roughly 160 horsepower at the wheels (atleast with the 5 spd manual). I had FS Werks race exhaust, Steeda intake and a tune on my last one. It wasn't an ST, but she was decently quick. She would run around 14.5-14.7 in the quarter mile, and about 6.8 or so to 60 mph. The race exhaust is loud though, but I did enjoy it while I had it. The FS Werks is relatively cheap, made in America and is of high quality.

As for warranty, just keep up on oiling your filter. I oiled mine every year in the spring. If you dig deep, I made a thread many years ago about how to oil the filter. The oil helps block dust.

Aberk, is that just a stock ST exhaust? Any modification to the exhaust itself? Sounds a lot louder than normal to me.

It is the stock st exhaust with the center resonator deleted. The only modification for install was chopping the flange and rotating it to fit on the cat. Really isnt too loud driving around from the cabin, just a nice mean tone with a little scream when you shift on the top end

Hello. I'm also new to this forum. I have a 2013 focus se hatchback. Would the suggestions you've already made for the original post work for my vehicle as well? I had to get a more family oriented vehicle and I'd like to rally it out. Lol. Thanks for your time.

Yes, however some of the parts are fit specific for 2015-up while others cover 2012-up. Youll have to look into specifics for what you're interested in. I started with intake and rear sway bar, inexpensive way to get into the game while still making a nice improvement
