ok ok...i know what you all are thinking. USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION! well i am not trying to figure out which one i will like more becuause i have read pretty much everythin on both and both seem to fit my criteria. the only thing i want to know now is where are the best places to get these exhausts from for the cheapest price? i am lookin to keep it under $300. my first choice would be bosal! the best i have found for the bosal is $318.00 and the best for the magnaflow is $290.00. if anyone knows of somewhere that is cheaper PLEASE tell me! thanks

Everyone is going to reccomend what they own, so you should make the final choise on your own. And going with that theam....... Magnaflow
. I would say that $290 is a very good price. Take it!

They are two pretty different looking systems. Since the price and gains are the same base your decision on fit, looks and sound. I've heard both and they are smiilar, both are deep, but the bosal burbles or farts more. The magnaflow is smoother sounding. You can find a clip on their website too.
You need to decide which looks best in your eyes. I dont like the way the bosal doesn't fit the bumper and hangs down with that can look in the back. But some people do.

Yeah...i had both types of exhaust can and no can (bosal and apex'i) and i hated the low can look. I much preferred the clean tip that fit perfectly into the bumper.

Here are some clips I just made this week.

Focus Central Race Header + Bosal Catback, parked and rev'd up:

Focus Central Race Header + Bosal Catback road test, "on it" from 1st-3rd gear(5 speed) :

Magnaflow Catback, no other exhaust mods, stop sign to stop sign, 1st & 2nd gear(ATX), no higher than 3k rpm:

Hope that helps


NOTE: Sound files may not stay on that server forever, depending on the number of times they are downloaded, I might have to move them. It cost money to store and serve up these files! I recommend you download and save them once, so you don't hit the server over and over again... If you come back to this thread at some later date using a "search" or something and you get an error finding those sound file, feel free to email me and ask where I moved them...

Good choice. You could buy my used apex'i in the classifieds section too...but it's more expensive...

Also keep in Mind w/ those Sound-Clips, that the Bosal has a Header, which DOES change the sound substantially, while the Magnaflow clips do NOT have a Header.
My Bosal does NOT hang low, and I think it was WELL Worth the Money Spent.

You mean that MEAN Burble that sounds like a Race car?
"Farts" is Inaccurate. RUMBLES is more like it.
