Im looking for an exhaust that sounds less like a high school Honda fart can or ricer and more like a professional V8 high dollar sound. Like a porsche or deep low end V8. The lower the better. Similar to stock and possibly even lower. Is there an exhaust out there that can accomplish this? Anyone have a comparison and info?

-Thanks!

FSWerks sounds pretty nice man check out the other thread on it
yeah... it looks like a good price too. I would say of all the ones I have heard so far it has about the best bang for the buck and a decent average mid sound. Not to high and tinny but not as low of a grunt that I would like. About the best sound I have heard so far is probably the scorpion exhaust but I'm guessing it is also one of the most expensive exhausts as well.

Trying to get V8 sound out of a 1.6 liter I4 is a poor strategy for designing an exhaust.

Its like trying to make Kate Moss look good in Kate Upton's bikini.

The new sound of 4 cylinder performance is the Alfa Romeo 4c. If you can find an exhaust with a similar tone, its going to sound good and grow on you over time.

Seems like to me the richest deep sounding exhaust is probably a tie between the Milltek Non Resonated Cat Back and the Piper cat back. I do really like the Supersprint full exhaust as well though.

The Piper and Montune are from the previous generation Fiesta ST, no turbo on those cars.

The Super sprint does sound nice in the video, I will have to investigate.

Well forget that, their prices are ludicrous and the tubing is small.

I could get a muffler and enough 321 pipes and mandrel bends from Burns Stainless to make an entire 3" exhaust for the price of their no cat down pipe.

Price wise, you would be correct. It's not cheap (nothing is if it is imported) but I absolutely love the sound and performance (when my car is running right). :rage: (everyone needs to check their IC pipe/hose clamps as mine were all loose, and one exhibiting major boost leak)

I'm lucky enough to live in a State where emissions aren't a factor.. Alaska is heaven :D.. I am running a custom 4" o2 tapering into a 3" strait pipe... I get nothing but compliments on it, and the drone is ungodly... But boy oh boy do I love the backfires.. MMmmmMMMM!!!

Sorry for double post.. I have a COBB v3 tuned by Underground racing up here in Anchorage to compensate for the extra flow on the exhaust.. so before the panty police come marching in one by one, it's been tuned.. We have 90oct up here tho so a little more tweaking had to be done.

Lol yeah it's not my car but it's a buddy's cost $250 cut the stock exhaust out. He hasn't had a problem but cops here in FL are pretty lax
