Full Exhaust

Does anyone have a video of the obx header with a fswerks race exhaust. I'm running the race exhaust and want to do catless header but don't want it to be too loud or be too "ricey"

I believe the "AF" should go at the end of the statement. But I could be wrong.

I would love to see the video if you can! I usually only ever do city driving with occasional freeway driving. I owned a v6 grand am gt with no cats and no mufflers, wondering how it compares sounds wise, thanks!

A v/6 & a 4 cylinder are going to sound totally different....The fwerks ''race exhaust'' w/ a header= your going to be adding another muffler very very soon. btw two 22''-24'' case length mufflers fit inline, such as two stealth mufflers & you'll find a the flange bolts up real tight to the flex, which works out great. The fwerks header/flex is the best header for a focus. You'll also want to get a VF engineering dogbone as the lower two primary tubes are pretty close to the swaybar....So yea installing a header changes the tone & noise level......>>>A Fwerks header/flex, two stealth mufflers & a tune to your race setup will get you going......Then all you'll hear for the most part is the header ting= Hot exhaust gases going thru the thin wall primary tubing vs the cast iron mani/cat.

With the stealth and the OBX i felt it took a good month to get used to the cabin noise. Loud would be an understatement.

Please do! I would love to hear it! I’m personally a fan of loud asf car, as long as they sound good and not like a fart can. I respect it as a car guy but it’s not for me. Has to sound good for me to do it. Would love pops and crackles!
