In due time they will I'm sure. I was hoping for the same stealth system but I might just splurge and get this to be the guinea pig...hmmm

Not bad. It looks great. I'll wait on some sound clips. Seems like fswerks is the first to offer a full range of parts for the fist, intake exhaust and soon to be released tune. Bet they will have a downpipe soon.

if it sounds anything like the Focus ST exhaust, I like it. And the price is much more palatable than most of the others out there.
I think that I may swing by on Monday at have a look at the actual system.

My thoughts exactly. If we didn't have to cut the stock exhaust off I might have just taken a shot and bought it. But I will need to hear how it sounds before committing to cutting the stock one off.

Let us know how it looks if you end up seeing it. Or take more pics if you can

Yeah thats the trend i guess. No one has released dyno numbers at all haha only the parts coming from the UK are giving numbers.

The CoBB AP is the only power/performance mod worth while right now. Glad I held myself on the other stuff.

FSWerks doesnt have a stock car to get #'s off of. They were rushed to make the SEMA car and didnt have the time to do the design, install AND dynos for each of the parts they designed.

It will likely take a local stock ST owner to buy one and get a dyno from them (I'm sure they would work something out)

If you wan't the stealth system, why not keep stock? Nothing can be more stealth than the stock exhaust, which is very quiet. While I have not heard any of the ST exhaust options, other than MRT, I would expect the FSWerks one to be the best compromise for the street. The price, tip design, weight reduction, and FSWerks' reputation for making high quality components has me leaning towards their exhaust.

If we get info on if 2.5" will support up to 250bhp I will likely go with their system aswell. (250HP is my goal as that is FIA R3 spec which our car falls under) I have used their systems in the past and have always been happy with the quality and sound Focus Sport/FSWerks products have.

I will be testing the Scorpion Exhaust system on a Dynojet today and also to establish a baseline on a Dynojet dyno (so I can get an idea to compare with the Mustang Dyno). Then back to Cobb for a dyno session to compare against my baseline that has already been established (stock numbers and Cobb AP stage 1). Then Thursday, back to a Dynojet to test FSWERKs intake with my set-up, then maybe another dyno session with Cobb early next week for the FSWERKs intake.

Unfortunately I dropped my camera this morning and the lens won't extend. I didn't think to hunt down my wife's camera until the UPS driver dropped off my FSWERKs intake just moments ago. lol. o_O

My dyno test was interesting to say the least. My best pull was the third and final one: 181 hp & 228 pft on LG Motorsports Dynojet 224x. Three pulls, with each run gaining more power with each subsequent run. They didn't even use a fan in front of my car. :bucktooth:

I kind of wish I had bought 2-3 more runs since who knows really if that last run was "maxed out". Mods are Cobb AP w/93 octane tune and 3" Scorpion exhaust system. The above numbers don't mean anything since this was essentially a baseline on a Dynojet, with the addition of an exhaust system. I will be much more interested in seeing how the car performs on Cobb's dyno since the installation of the exhaust was post test.

As soon as I receive the email with my dyno charts, I will post them. I didn't get a paper copy.
