I just bought a used focus central race header that deletes the factory cat and bolts directly to the flex. I understand this will make my exhaust note a bit deeper, and louder for sure even with the stock system.

My issue is with aftermarket exhaust sound levels though. If I run a magnaflow or borla it will be ULTRA loud. I need a few exhaust systems that are quiet and perhaps built for a race header.

I've seriously looked into the FocusSport one, are there any others that pair well with the race header? 2.5" is ideal, but 2.25" is not much of an issue for me...

Thank you all

magna will be way loud.

from what I hear fs stealth is the way to go.....or....in any after market exhaust get the magnaflow 28in (which ever their longest is) resonator and weld it into the long piece under the middle of the car after the flex. have not heard a focus with this extra long resonator on it, so I do not know how it sounds.

Stock will be killing my flow. I'm decently modded as it sits and my engine needs to breathe better. Only thing is the FS exhaust is a pretty penny that I don't want to let go lol. I can find other systems around but they'll be way too loud

i have an MBRP exhaust and it was pretty lound and now have also installed the focus sport intake also and now it is very loud but i like it so the steath exhaust i would say would be your best bet.

I'm probably going to play with any system in order to get a tone I'm happy with, but something quiet to begin with will give me more time to do so
