  1. Exhaust valve rattle on startup.

    Focus RS TroubleShooting
    I’ll try and get a video if I can but about 50% of the time when I start my car, warm or cold (more so when cold), the valve on my magnaflow catback rattles. Sounds like metal on metal shaking and only happens for about 10-20 seconds and I think it goes away when I open the flap. I’ve searched...
  2. Quietest Valved Exhaust

    Focus RS Discussions
    Hey everyone, New to the domestic market and there are a lot of players in the exhaust market. Picked up my RS on Memorial Day, I’ve bought everything I need minus exhaust in preparation for my E30 tune. I have had straight piped or catless resonated TBEs on all of my cars since I was 15 and I...
  3. Unknown Center Exit Exhaust Trade For Stock?

    Parts Wanted
    I traded up from my '14 FoST to a '16 FoRS yesterday... Drove 300 miles back home with what sounds like an open exhaust. Have not gotten a chance to lift the car and see what is up under there, but I know I want to get rid of this very loud exhaust. Not too bad when you get up to speed, but...
  4. Tune plus single exit titanium exhaust

    Focus RS Discussions
    Hey guys, I’m really interested in the tune plus exhaust but it’s hard to find much about how people like it and hearing the sound, for you guys that bought it how do you like it and do you have any clips of the exhaust sound?
  5. Injen catback with catless downpipe?

    Focus RS Discussions
    Thinking about a future combination with the injen catback and a scorpion catless down pipe. Does anyone have this setup or something close to it?
  6. Mish-Mash Exhaust Questions?

    Focus RS Performance
    Hello everybody, So, I bought a Focus RS a while ago, it was stock, except for the exhaust. It has some weird cheap SW exhaust on the back and what seems to be some sort of resonator, but its 12" max. It kept the stock valve but honestly doesn't work half the time, or at least it doesn't seem...

    Sold Sold Sold
    For sale is a used Full-Race catback exhaust system. I was the second owner of the system and there is approximately 11,645 miles on the system between the two of us. There is nothing functionally wrong, it was just too loud for my taste. It has a very deep tone, especially when the valve is...

  11. Focus RS Exhaust Valve open at idle / low speed

    Focus RS Discussions
    Hi everyone, I have done some reading and watched a few videos on the valve and how/when it works in normal mode. I have recently had the exhaust bypass mod done so the different operating modes are very distinct. From what I have read online, when warm, in normal mode at idle (when taking...
  12. Catless DP help

    Focus RS Discussions
    I'm new to the modding world and don't really want to do a whole lot other than make the exhaust sound a bit beefier. At this point, I'm not worried about any performance gains, but just want to feel more satisfied with the power through the sound. I plan on getting a catless DP, probably...
  13. How to quiet down AWE Track

    Focus RS Performance
    So I recently installed the AWE track exhaust and love everything about it (stock downpipe), except two specific scenarios. 1. WOT pulls and decel, the backfire and pop which is normally quite nice with the stock exhaust is simply too loud (for me). It is gun shot sounding. 2. Letting off the...
  14. AWE Track Edition Review PLUS Installation Video

    Focus RS Accessories
    Hey guys! SWATS here. I just purchased the AWE Track Edition and I couldn't be happier. I've done several performance modifications to my 2016 RS and I felt it was time to have its sound step up to be on equal footing. I initially was going to go with the ETS Extreme pipe, but I have several...

  16. Exhaust Recs

    Focus RS Performance
    Hello everyone. Apologies if this has been done before, I searched for a recommendation thread but couldn't find one. As the title reads I'm looking for a recommendation on an exhaust. I'm looking for something with a deep sound but loud as well. Should I have a muffler shop custom make it or...
  17. Straight Piping & Warranty

    Focus RS Discussions
    Hi Everyone, I just got a new 2017 RS recently and I think we all can agree that the exhaust system sounds great as it is, but Ford obviously had to meet regulatory requirements. I want people to know I'm coming a 1/4 mile away and the other system they offer just doesn't cut it. The dealers...

  19. Milltek Non-resonated Cat-back Exhaust

    Focus RS Performance
    I'm looking into buying the Milltek non-res cat-back and wanted to get a pulse, from people who've pulled the trigger on it, if it is worth the money. From what I have been listening to on YouTube, it seems to be the deepest note and most raw sounding exhaust out for the RS to date, but I'm a...
