I'm planning on getting cat back exhaust for myself for christmas and I can't decide which muffler to go with. I got to listen to a focus with the Borla one on TruBendz website and I liked it. Anyone know where I can here any others ones? I heard magnaflow can be kinda loud so I wanted to hear it. Also what are people's recommendations on the various systems? I am looking to spend 300 or less if possible.

300 or less just go thru trubendz. just make sure whatever u get is stainless steel... as far as mufflers.... magnaflow is nice and deep, borla is deep n throaty, flowmaster is loud and obnoxious... it all depends what u wanna sound like.

HKS sounds good too but thats out of your price range, when i get around to my exhaust im goin w/borla 2.5"

If you go with Magnaflow, theres a guy that sells the 2.25" SS for $235.00 on Ebay. That's where I got mine and I'm happy with it.

Magnaflow isn't that loud (unless you have the full set-up like me and it's plenty loud for me.) Plus I got it for around $300 from NewEdge.

Magnaflow is probably well within your price range, and sounds deep and smooth. If available with a silencer, then you'll probably be happier with the total install. In fact, I've got a friend that Ebays these, if you're interested I can try to hook you up with the muffler...PM me...

I have the magnaflow w/silencer...It deff. is deep and sounds good. I was afraid to go without a silencer because of the rice effect..Also running shorty header and race pipe w/cheater I think the motor is louder than the exhaust...I like

Magnaflow on my ZX5, sounds great. Mine is polished SS from one end to the other, looks great, too bad you can't see it unless you're under the car. I paid $280 for mine, maybe Magnaflow has the unpolished for less money?????

I've heard the Borla and the Magnaflow, and I have to say that neither one or the other is louder in my opinion, they both have great deep low sounds to them, the borla however you can adjust to make it sound different by moving the tip in or out. The magnaflow tip is nicer to look at in my opinion.

I have to say I used to be a Borla guy.......had it on my truck and Wrangler and loved it. Decided on the Magnaflow for the Focus because of the price and also people here said you get pretty much the same gains from the 2 on the Focus. All in all I'm pleased with the looks and sounds.
