hks if you want clean, quality, smooth

MBRP if you wanna loose youre hearing...or add a race header and have all youre neighbors within 5 miles join you in the new "DEAF" club....

both are good exhuasts however, proven, dynoed and tested...just completely different characters

opinion only ofcourse


PS....i personally can vouch that the HKS will give you 4whp on a BONE STOCK FOCUS< which actualy, for a focus exhuast, is pretty damn good

I just got an HKS. That's my vote.


I like the sound and the "different" look. Plus my Honda buddies couldn't believe I could get an HKS for a Focus. They love it.

I'd say out of those two the HKS, there is a reason its more
You should look at the thermal too, that's a really nice quality exhaust.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Ha! Pick what you like, dont fall into this name crap, and more money means more quality, umm, yeah theres a reason the HKS is more, ever hear of advertising costs ?. Before you spent all that $$$, make sure the entire system is stainless (dont know why, but I keep thinking the HKS doesnt use stainless piping).

I do not believe HKS is stainless. THe canister of course is stainless but the piping is not. I think it's alumanized. If it is stainless, then it's ceramic coated! (which would be cool) But if you look at the design, it IS the most straight through design out there. That's probably why they can use smaller diameter piping and get the gains they get.

I think the HKS sound is by far the best, and the design I love... The quality has ALWAYS been there, as they are a premier player in the import industry. I agree don't fall into more money = better quality. More money sometimes equals more money and nothing else.

But HKS, nobody will tell you that they make crap. Just isn't the case!
