Does anyone have a video of the obx header with a fswerks race exhaust. I'm running the race exhaust and want to do catless header but don't want it to be too loud or be too "ricey"

I would love to see the video if you can! I usually only ever do city driving with occasional freeway driving. I owned a v6 grand am gt with no cats and no mufflers, wondering how it compares sounds wise, thanks!

A v/6 & a 4 cylinder are going to sound totally different....The fwerks ''race exhaust'' w/ a header= your going to be adding another muffler very very soon. btw two 22''-24'' case length mufflers fit inline, such as two stealth mufflers & you'll find a the flange bolts up real tight to the flex, which works out great. The fwerks header/flex is the best header for a focus. You'll also want to get a VF engineering dogbone as the lower two primary tubes are pretty close to the swaybar....So yea installing a header changes the tone & noise level......>>>A Fwerks header/flex, two stealth mufflers & a tune to your race setup will get you going......Then all you'll hear for the most part is the header ting= Hot exhaust gases going thru the thin wall primary tubing vs the cast iron mani/cat.

With the stealth and the OBX i felt it took a good month to get used to the cabin noise. Loud would be an understatement.
I couldn't deal w/ that for more then a few hrs...A few v/8's a weekend.

Please do! I would love to hear it! I’m personally a fan of loud asf car, as long as they sound good and not like a fart can. I respect it as a car guy but it’s not for me. Has to sound good for me to do it. Would love pops and crackles!

i have a video clip in my build thread i think. try looking up my name "jordan burks" or "mk3 exhaust" on youtube. i posted it there too. it's just a crappy cell phone video but it's the Fwserks header and 2.5 stealth exhaust. no cat's. it's pretty loud but i daily drive it and its not bad. it's only really loud on WOT. just cruising is pretty quite.

I just tried finding your video. All I can find is “weird front end noise.” Please add link.

Mine sounds very similar to someone with a Fs werks stealth, and catless as well, except possibly louder..its pretty raunchy but I've had a lot of compliments, a guy with a 600hp Sti at a dyno day said I had the best sounding exhaust he's heard the whole day. :) But in Vancouver, BC Canada the police are cracking down an all modified cars, kinda like in California if you've heard... I need to install a rear muffler to quieten it down or face getting a vehicle inspection order

So I’m also looking for an exhaust
Setup. I have the obx catless header (I haven’t installed yet). I’m thinking about doing a custom 3” full exhaust. But I’m not sure which muffler and resonator Combo to go with to make a nice sound not raspy or too loud. Suggestions?

Thought it was a dct at first and got excited that there was already a “two step” sounding limiter but it’s a 5 sp lol

Dct LC is locked out by DCT TCM safety protocols/programming..... no way around it yet
