Whats yall's opinion of the best cat-back? Also the ones on ebay name OBX, MAGNAFLOW, OR APEX? Which ones best? Or are there differences in performance between them? keep in mind i dont care about the sound. im getting them for performance. Thanks guys.

If you are looking for best performance I would suggest Borla. Strange
that I say that when I own a Focus Sport Stealth Exhaust. Stay away
from the OBX exhaust. I helped install one and the piping comes below
the rear cross member and the tip comes out at an angle and will
probably melt your rear bumper

Magnaflow, Borla, FocusSport, and MBRP are the most popular around this site.
yeah that is pretty much correct...

right now I have the Borla and I love it and I had the MBRP and I loved it too

you'll be happy w/any of those exhausts....barely any bad reviews about em : )

BORLA (by far the best, always has been, always will be).....

MAGNAFLOW, MBRP, FOCUS SPORT makes some nice ones also.

Trubendz.com Check it out. A borla or magnaflow or flowmaster for a lot less. My exhaust cost 370 to the door. What it is 2.5inch w/ 2.5inch flex. I went cheap and used aluminized steel but the stainless price is pretty good also. I used a magnaflow muffler and love it. I also have a race header so it is a bit loud. They use mendrel bent piping and whatever muffler you want. You probably lose just a tick of quality but for me it was well worth it. There sizes range from 2.25 to 3.5 so all aplications are covered.

Searching around on the site you will find that the BORLA is highly recommended[thumb] I had a Magnaflow then switched to a Borla. I would never go back to a Magnaflow again.

Borla all the way, I have one and I am very pleased with it. Check Mcnewsautomotive.com for them, they have very good deals on Borla.

does anybody remember way back in the day I mean back when focus' were just starting to finally get aftermarket parts. There was an exhaust system that claimed like 5 more hp than any other system. I can't remember the name but it was pricey.

I figured I'd slightly hijack this thread since it hasn't been used in a while. I realized the stainless is better than the aluminized steel. My question is where does the stock system fit in when it comes to rust resistance?

i have a Tsudo exhaust and i like it, the only problem i have with it is that the tip is 4.5 inches, too big for me. but it sounds good. Everyone seems to like the borla so thats the easiest route

Another vote for Borla...I've had mine on since late 2004 and I can't complain. Its civil while cruising, but opens up when you hammer on the throttle. And the tone is deep and gurgly, not ricey or raspy at all.
