Increase the horsepower and torque of your 2013-2018 Focus ST with a top of the line exhaust system. This XP Series 3" Cat-Back Exhaust System with Black Tips designed by MBRP exclusively for CJ Pony Parts will open up the air flow of your ST, allowing it to breathe much better for improved performance.

As with all MBRP products, you can expect high performance gains with this cat-back exhaust for your Focus ST. Best of all, you don’t even need a tune to use this cat-back exhaust! You are sure to feel the ST’s 2.0L EcoBoost engine come to life as it breathes more efficiently with the 3” diameter exhaust pipes. This cat-back will also give you what some may say is arguably one of the best exhaust notes for the Focus ST.

Exclusive to CJ Pony Parts, this MBRP cat-back exhaust was designed to handle anything thrown at it, from salt and rocks, to tar and grime. It has been constructed from sixteen gauge T409 stainless steel, with a mirror polished finish, making the underside of your Focus ST look as good as it sounds. The dual tip center exhaust is made from dual wall T304 stainless steel with a black finish for a clean, simple look for the rear end of your 2013-2018 ST.

MBRP Cat-Back Exhaust S4200409BLK Features and Benefits:
- Increased horsepower and torque
- 3” diameter
- Constructed from sixteen gauge T409 stainless steel
- Polished mirror finish
- Black dual wall T304 stainless steel exhaust tips
- Exclusively sold at CJ Pony Parts

Please Note: Ford designed the 2015 Focus ST with four exhaust hangers but only added three on the factory exhaust system. All aftermarket exhaust systems are built to use that fourth exhaust hanger. CJ Pony Parts recommends the purchase of COBB’s Polyurethane Exhaust Hanger Kit (591001).

Each exhaust system is designed with the lowest bend degree angles and smooth mandrel bends so exhaust gases have an easier exit path. This creates faster moving exhaust gases, reduces exhaust gas temperatures and flows much better than stock exhaust. Hundreds of test miles and hundreds of hours are invested into every MBRP system to provide you with the best sound and best performance improvement. Rigorous testing procedures ensure every component will fit as expected. MBRP designs their exhaust kits to be user friendly with simple bolt-on installation. Includes installation instructions.

Order this MBRP S4200409BLK XP Series 3" Cat-Back Exhaust System with Black Tips for your 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 or 2018 Focus ST from CJ Pony Parts today!

Installation Videos

Vehicle Fitment

This product will fit the following Focus years:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and look Get the COBB Exhaust Hangers when you order this! I know, you're trying to save money. This will save you from having to put this exhaust in twice. You will appreciate it if you don't have access to a lift and you are doing this install on the ground. The factory hangers don't hold it in place good enough so it will rattle. Aside from that note, the exhaust looks and sounds great! I went with the black tips as it doesn't seem like it's a common thing. I've gotten plenty of compliments on it. This was my first time with slip-fit exhaust installation, so it is a hair off, but the tips are still centered. I definitely recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Sound, good fitment I have had the exhaust on my 17 ST since the end of November. Love the sound, definitely recommend getting the Cobb hangers. Deleting the sound symposer after installing this system was a welcome mod, the symposer coupled with the reverberation of the exhaust is just too much drone in the cabin imo. Downside, it is stainless but is already gathering a solid amount of surface rust after not even three months of winter. Disappointing would rate 3.5 overall due to immediate rust. Great Sound, great fitment but more rust in a short period of time than any stock exhaust I have had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Massaging my Focus ST It's a good exhaust at a decent price. With the price in mind, set your expectations accordingly. Some advice: 1. The black tips are painted with the bolts in. This means the threads are painted and they are difficult to tighten. 2. All those other reviews that say, "the pipe ends were bent" are right. It's not a big deal. Just grab some pliers and a towel and bend them back. 3. Get the COBB hangers. Just do it. 4. ***MOST IMPORTANTLY*** the MBRP guy in the CJ install video on YouTube says "you may find yourself massaging the heat shields a little bit" to get one section of pipe over the rear sub-frame. No. You need to drill a rivet and bend the heat shield out of the way (on the 2016 ST at least). Buy a rivet gun at Harbor Freight for $4.86 and re-rivet the shield when you're done. "Massaging" won't get you anywhere. Once installed, you'll be extremely sore from wriggling around under your ST. You'll also have an exhaust that's relatively quiet, doesn't drone, and looks cool. This kit is the mid point between the Magnaflow and Flowmaster options. I'm well pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Exhaust System! I received this cat-back exhaust system for Christmas and just installed it! The sound is perfect! It did take some caressing to get the joint that fit over the axle into place, and also getting the pipe attached to one of the hangers was a slight issue, but once that was figured out, it fit like a glove and turned out awesome! Thanks, y'all!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sound is great This was a pretty straight forward install. Managed to pull it off in my garage on jack stands. Only issue I had was that I apparently ordered this April 13 2019 and it arrived June 17th 2019. So like whoa on the back order... I totally forgot about this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No More Factory Exhaust -- Thank God! I bought this fine aftermarket exhaust to replace the muted small diameter factory offering. It's not a loud exhaust (unless you want it to be), however, it has a nice rich tone that enhances the sound of a 2.0L Turbo; I know, it'll never sound like a 5.0L V8, but it does upgrade the flow and sound of the factory. Hey, a ST should sound like it has a nice powerplant under the hood....right. I would recommend replacing the factory hangers with a set of Cobb upgraded hangers; gives the system a rock solid feel and support. Unless you like crawling under your chassis and fitting this 3" system in place of a 2 1/4" unit, have a local race shop install the exhaust. A little more than an hour and I had the exhaust installed plus a Mountune Rear Motor Mount, an important performance must-have for the ST driver. The MBRP was a good choice for me and with my all black ST the anodized black exhaust tips made it even better -- the chrome tips wouldn't have been as nice, IMO...I also recommend the stainless versions over the standard aluminum exhaust....a

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice exhaust system.. I bought the MBRP cat-back XP Series 3" a few weeks ago. I'm very happy with it. Sounds good not too loud or an annoying drone under normal driving.. But when you put your foot down it makes a good aggressive sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good and Fit Great Bought this for My 2016 ST ST3. Paired with the Cobb Hangers. Fit Like a Glove and sounds amazing. very low deep tone when paired with a Roush intake.

Is it possible to install the muffler backwards? What direction should the embossed MBRP be pointing?

I have a shop in stall my cat back with a catted downtube. Seems to be a lot of drone around 3000 RPM. Is it possible they installed the muffler backwards or can it only be installed in one direction?

Asked by: Tman1817
Some drone is typical for most aftermarket exhausts.

Hi Guys, I Have a 2016 Focus ST. I'm interested on the MSRP XP series, would it pass the smog test?  I'm also looking for s street down pipe. With all after market down pipes do I have to get rid of the Catalytic Converter? would it pass the smog test? 

Asked by: Cheech
We don't keep track of the aftermarket part laws in any area, so we'd encourage you to check the list of official approved CARB parts here: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/devices/amquery.php.

So a 2018 ST would not need to purchase the additional exhaust hanger is that correct? Is it just the 2015 that would need that?

Asked by: Drewbydoo23
We recommend it for the 2018 as well. The design that was implemented in 2015 has still carried over to the current model year. Nothing has changed.

If combined with the 3" catalytic converter downpipe, does this result in an end-to-end 3" system?
