Thats a ST , much easier to do with Turbo , but why would you want to

Do things that make it performs better vs sound better

Me... I would rather have a Focus that sounded slow but ran fast then sounds fast and runs slow , but thats me

catless and going with a header will help you hear any of those extra noises better... I could get some light burbles when i had my FSwerks header on the car, none since taking it off

With my high flow header-cat, 2.5 exhaust and Tom's tune my sedan crackle and pops but not obnoxiously (IMHO) like the ST tunes that are available. Just has that sweet rumble with some pops and cracks on decel.... just enough to sound cool but not be over the top or obviously forced by tune.
