I recently bought a Red Edition, loving having a fast ford again. Only problem is a really unpleasant droning exhaust. A mate took it out and commented that it doesn’t sound good, just unpleasant. The Mrs uses it and is not impressed either 🤣
Had it into Ford and was unsurprised its not standard. I’m having FPM 375 fitted and Ford have told me a replacement standard exhaust is 1800 quid! That feels a lot for something I’m guessing isn’t even stainless steel.
So, the question is do I just go back to standard, or is there a high quality exhaust out there that doesn’t sound like someone’s punched a hole in the silencer?
I know most are looking to go the other way, so I’m struggling with finding the answer in the forum.
Hi Paul and welcome unfortunately I’m not the person to advise you, but I know there a lot of RS enthusiasts on this forum who have dabbled in the exhaust areas , so I’m sure someone will steer you in the right direction, take care look after her , the car i mean , oh and you’re other half . 🤣🤣👍👍
I have the Mountune V3 exhaust and sports Cat and it sounds great but damn it’s loud on start up. I’m half tempted to swap the back box back to the standard unit but will stick with it for a while longer before deciding.

I was toying with a mountune V3 catback will have to wait until insurance renewal as they wanted another £150 on top! Which is a joke. Can’t believe Ford want £1800 for a standard when the V3 is better and around £1400.
This weekend fitted the J9 controller to replace the previous delete plug and had the Scorpion non-res Cat Back (valved). Valve closed its perfect. A little more rumble than OEM on start up and very neighbour friendly. On the open road, switch the valve open and…Oh my!. Drove all the way back from Deemon Tweeks in Wrexham with windows down. Absolutely freezing but a massive grin ear to ear!
I have a mountune v3 with sports cat and a j9 exhaust controller, sounds lovely with no drone at all even with the valve open, close the valve on cold start and it’s no louder than standard to keep the neighbors happy👍🏻
I have scorpion non res with sports cat, j9 controller is a must….. but I’m just starting to look for a full miltek res system, or something that is quiet. Want to be even more stealth, with a surprise 😂
Only downside to my system is the valve rattles its tits off when closed 🤨
