Both 350 bucks.

Both 304 Stainless Steel

Dominant Cat: Magnaflow Ceramic Core Catalyst

CFM Cat: MagnaFlow/CarSound
http://www.c-f-m.com/performancepar...t-Pipe-for-02-04-SVT-Focus-82p128.htm#details

Mainly looking for how it sounds tonally.
I did read somewhere that Dominant is raspy sounding at first, but goes away once broken in...

I dont like rasp, but quality and welds look excellent on Dominant.

Different note: I heard Tru-Bendz quality went down too... can anyone back that up? Thats why i didnt put it down as an option.

Who has what and why did you get that one?

Thanks!

Those two= I'd go w/ the Magna flow, for Doms be prepared to wait a few months to get it after you paid him wheres w/ cfm, you'll get it real quick. You running a convertor, cause of the emmission police? I'd run a orp w/ a stealth muffler. btw, your silver svt in your avatar looks cool....

The CFM is out of stock now... So i gotta wait anyways. >_<
I've got a MIL Eliminator if i need it.
Thanks man! That was my old SVT... Shes no longer alive. [bawling] Got a red 2 door svtf now.[wave]

Read this thread from the Vendors/sellers reviews section on Dominant & decide for yourself:http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/showthread.php?t=257439

Felix commented on possible wait time already.
Yeeeeaaaaaaa.... to avoid that hassle, I'm just gonna go with CFM on this one.

I know a lot of my customers have the C-F-M and like them a lot

Tom
Cant go wrong with your advice!

Thanks guys. Made my decision, CFM Race Cat it is!

I live in ma where they will get you for anything I've never had an issue with the orp not even loud imo louder than stock yea but nothing outrageous. I bought the mil cheater and it's junk doesn't even work luckily I have tom as my tuner and he turned that sensor off so I don't throw a code. I would say go with orp and when you can get toms tune it's a lot of fun. Then you'll wanna keep modding go turbo and then your in for it..... Lol either way happy modding! Tis the season.

I had on orp on my last svtf. Dont want it nearly as loud, but improve performance some. Not cause of emissions. Im in Texas so its not very strict. MIL i got from CFM helped not give me a code.

Add a stealth muffler to the orp.
