I have an 2010 Focus Coupe and want to get a cat-back exhaust and want to know what you guys would suggest.
I'm looking for good performance for the most part but also would like a nice deep tone as well.
I've looked at a couple like the F2 exhaust and the fswerks race exaust. also was wondering about the trubends exhaust. it says you can chose your muffler (borla, magnaflow) thats the link>http://www.mandrelexhaustsystems.com/servlet/the-214/05-dsh-09-FORD-FOCUS-EXHAUST/Detail

out of those 3 in your own opinions, which would give me the best hp/tor gains and would sound the best.

I've got the F2 and love the tone. With the turbo it has a bit deeper tone than with the factory exhaust mani though. I've driven the F2 08 coupe with intake and factory exhaust mani with the catback. Not to loud.

They are all good choices. It really comes down to sound and how much you want to spend. I went with the Borla setup because I really like the sound of there kits

They only make catbacks for the US focus. I wouldn't go 3" exhaust. Even for a turbo thats way to big. Stick with 2.5". If your N/A and go turbo you won't have to worry about the exhaust upgrade.

yeah i woudn't go 3inch.

2.5 and 3 inch isn't much of a dif on turbo. just sounds better lol. but 2.5 will give you a more deep tone while ur n/a then when you go to turbo, *if you do*it will sound much nicer.

its gonna be hard to find a 2.5 in and out borla tho :( im having no luck myself.

I bought a 2.5" cat back kit that actually fits the 05-07 Focus. I will just have to some modification to make it fit. I would just go with a 2.5" kit it will handle everything you throw at it. If you buy a cat back from Trubendz you can only get it with a Magnaflow muffler. The Borla mufflers are only for the 00-04.

I bought mine off of ebay. You really have to do some searching to find these kits. They don't make them any more so they are getting hard to find.
