Just added a JLT CAI to it for her. Still looking at different exhaust setups. I have to admit there is no way to make a turbo I-4 sound good IMHO. However out of all the YouTube videos I've watched thus far I think I prefer the cat-back exhaust from MAPerformance. It sounds the least "ricey" or "Fart-Pipey" to me.


Next up will be a downpipe and a tune.

Great video. I think you are right, she loved it and I am sure she has gotten over her fear of driving it. Did you ever decide on a tune?

No not yet. I'm actually now leaning towards some Ford supplied performance upgrades. At least those will be warranty friendly.

Yeah I've been looking at their performance offerings and asking myself, "Does my wife really need more power"?

As for the inability to post links... it's a feature of the forums to prevent bots from from performing hit-and-runs with ads. I've already banned a couple users from Hong Kong who created accounts and then made a few stupid posts just to get their counts up so they could then start posting ads.

Well I must say, I have been looking for a exhaust that didnt sound ricey for a while and have been researching way before I even bought my car and some how missed that MAPerformance even made parts for the ecoboosts. I know this company from my many years owning a DSM ( talon, eclipse, Laser ) and their parts are very top quality. Now that I know I can buy parts from them I think I know where my exhaust is coming from! Thanks for linking the video.
