I was wondering if the cat-back exhaust system for the ZX3 will fit on the SVT. I here that the HKS exhaust helps the Zetec breath better than any other exhaust system????

It's different because of the cat placement, think about it. :) If you want an exhaust made for a ZX3 you need to replace all of the exhaust components.

All Focus Cat backs should be changed to flex pipe back because that is really what you are getting. The biggest difference is the size of the flange that the cat back bolts up to. this would have to be modified. Other than that it should work...I was the test monkey for Trubendz and my kit had a ZX3 flange....I made it work with no problems...

I want to buy a good "Performance exhaust. Most of these exhuast on the market are for sound not performance. Should I get a exhaust customized somewhere or buy one. I hear that Thermal's Cat-back exhaust was pretty good. So guys give me some feed back.

If you want to UPGRADE your SVT exhaust, DON'T put on smaller pipes. In my opinion Magnaflow and MBRP are the best options for the price. The Borla is great, it has a nice sound and 2.5" piping but has a high price tag. I went with MBRP in the 2.5" piping and with shipping it was like $370. It is loud though, especially with my ORP, but I like the rally car type sound. Oh and btw thanks Focaltech for the advice a while back on what exhaust to get!

check out the sound clips on the manufacturer's website im sure they don't do justice to real life but the borla and the magnaflow sound good

mbrp has a rally sound and i think it too can be ordered in 2.5", but for quality and sound i can recomend none other than Borla
