Most people go with an intake first cause it yields more gains then just a catback would. It all depends on how much you have to spend as well. What have you been looking at for an intake and a catback (brands) so far?

get what you feel comfortable with, my first mod was a udp but i havent installed it yet because i think ill break something, an intake is really easy to install as is a cat-back....id say intake because its seriously like 2 bolts, no cutting involved

Actually to remove the stock exhaust you DO have to cut the pipe..... it's a complete system front to back (catback) for the stock one whereas the aftermarket catbacks come in three pieces. You have to cut the stock exhaust to remove it.

i know as a genral rule of thumb if you have the money to do both do them both...Im pretty new to the focus but i know as a genral rule of thumb if your car can breathen in easier then your going to need to breath out easier. if you do them both you should see a good power boost.... how ever i know not every one can afford to do that...like my self lol.
