All of you people who are running Magnaflow or Flowmaster, What is the size of your muffler, and what muffler are you running?

Thanks
Brandon

I don't run either, but I know that most people that run flowmaster use the 40 series muffler with either 2.25" or 2.5" piping. I couldn't tell you about the magnaflow though.

2.25 is a proper size for your motor. your motor would have trouble flowing 2.5 and you would be hard pressed to find a use for a 3 inch.

Mine works fine with a 2.5" exhaust, and all I have is that and a Volant intake. Only reason for the 2.5" though is for a little deeper tone.

2.5 will be louder...not always deeper.

Personally I thing Borla is the way to go on the focus. It depends on the sound you want, borla gives it a more humble sound, can be lound when you rhomp on it but just enough purr when you just driving around..

Mine flows wonderful with my 2.5" borla, 2.5" flex, ORP, and focus central header.
What makes you think it would have trouble with 2.5"? [confused]

I'm likely going to go with 2.25" Dynomax SuperTurbo but was wondering what design to get? Is it straight in/out, or offset? Does anyone know what width and length muffler will fit?

I'm getting ready to pull the flowmasters off of all of my cars... they are way more restrictive than they claim to be. A straight through muffler is the only way to go if your looking for power... all offset mufflers are restrictive (as well as flowmasters)
