more changes... stifling the sound

Ok - the Cobb Catback has been a bit noisy, so trying to mitigate the resonance in the cabin...  Reading some of the forums, one help is to do a sound symposer delete - it's an auditory tube that actually pipes exhaust noises into the cabin to give the car a racy sound (stock) - obviously with a catback, we've altered the sound quite a bit

CFM Performance 4-0300 Symposer Delete with Pressure Port for 2013-2016 Ford Focus ST is one of the most cost effective ones I've found... just ordered :)

Hopefully in a couple of days, we will have some difference of sound ;)

It's Cobb catback time for the Focus ST

Well I jumped on Cobb Tuning's latest 10% off sale and picked up the FORD FOCUS ST CAT-BACK EXHAUST SYSTEM

3" Stainless Steel Dual Tip Cat-Back for the Ford Focus ST is a direct replacement cat-back exhaust that boasts full 304 stainless steel construction, custom inline mufflers, and dual 4" double wall tips, resulting in a drone-free, unique exhaust note. Perfectly tuned out of the box with the Accessport and ready-to-run with easy installation!
