    I'd have to hear it in person, but I'm not loving it from the video.....

    Not bad. Just reminds me of a srt4 is all but it is a turbo 4 so that’s expected too

    It’s very deep in person, the pops are really loud when they happen. Sounds just like stock, just a few decibels louder

    Not a good sign whenever someone says this

    It does remind me of srt4 sound. Those pops always reminded me of the rotary drag cars at the track...which I always hated

    ...and Maximus said to Commodus, "the time for honoring yourself will soon come to an end."

    Man you guys are killing me :( I made a comparison video I’ll post up soon. It has the stock exhaust next to the bypass. Trust me it doesn’t sound much different than stock at all lol. That’s just how the car sounds. Until I can get that video up here is one of my car with completely stock exhaust.

    If you hate this one too don’t hate me hate ford haha

    I haven’t heard the video but I know my buddies sounded perfect with an exhaust on it, I couldn’t imagine it sounding great with out the muffler.

    I love the Focus RS and would entertain getting one. I think many of us here are more accustomed to that sweet v8 rumble, so consider the audience....

    I have a cobra too and a Big Block 68, I’m all about V8, but have to appreciate other cars too for what they are!

    It still has the stock muffler installed. It’s not a muffler delete, just a partial bypass.

    I’ll give it a listen when I’m home, for what ever reason it won’t load at work. I do love the RS really fun to drive.
