FSWERKS has a new exhaust video on YouTube and it includes the dyno graph...there is also a dyno for the exhaust vs. Stock as well as a dyno for sport exhaust and cool flo vs. Stock

Im really diggin this exhaust out of all others especially how quiet it is for it not having a resonator and the price. Im just waiting on cobb before I make purchasing decisions.

It's def the top of my list at this point...it's not too loud and not too quiet...I think it's a pretty nice compromise.
Since I have the intake as well I'll be leaning toward this one...unfortunately I'm not a very patient person, but I'm gonna try to hold out just a lil longer

I loved my old FocusSport exhaust on my ZX3, numbers look good and the company is great to deal with. Just need the car to show up now.

never really dealt w/them but have never heard anything bad...they seem to produce quality products
I had almost every FocusSport product on my old car at one point or another, all quality stuff.

Wish they had a dyno of intake, exhaust + Cobb tune but they are already making more HP than the tune added. Combine it all and it should be great.

Not sure bout the 3" I would kinda doubt it though...nobody really seems to be going the 3" route...not sure why though?!

FSwerks doesnt think 3" is needed. Thier 2.5" on other cars have produced somewhere close to 400bhp. 2.5" will save weight and we wont be making anywhere close to those HP #'s with these cars

On a naturally aspirated engine, I would agree that a single 2.5" pipe can work at 400 HP, but with a turbo, reducing back pressure makes power so I'll be looking for a 3" system or making my own.

A mild, mostly stock car would do fine with 2.5" but upgrade the turbo and suddenly 3" seems like a good idea.

A good stainless system can be made with thin wall tube which minimizes any weight penalty.

The real issue is sound, bigger pipes generally equal more sound so performance vs. unwanted attention is how I'm going to balance things.

Yeah I don't really want an obnoxious exhaust I dealt w/that in the past and don't want that again, that's what's so appealing to me about this exhaust...it's not the quietest exhaust but not nearly the loudest either....has a great sound too imo
