So I just got done welding up my new exhaust...the kind with a 2.5 inch 3 way cat, and a 2.5 inch 'cherry bomb'....the whole system is 2.5 from the turbo back, with the TWE header and DP.

Its...like...quiet now. Its as loud as it used to be with the stock header/DP and no cats...and that was quiet. Like...imagine the exhaust note on a stock STi...its only a little bit louder than one of those....hmmm...maybe I need to make it louder again...? Nah...sleeper effect. :burnout:

Pics to come soon...progress is happening with the PS/AC re-install, the steering column is fixed and installed. PS lines are the only thing left...I think.

I like 'em quiet as possible. "Walk softly, carry a big stick."


The RX we had was by no means quiet, but sounded awesome. Burly.

Kudos to you for all the effort.

I do have to disagree with the "sleeper" comment.
With all the stickers you have pasted all over the exterior I think it's become the antithesis of a sleeper.
Probably the first old style subaru ricer I've ever seen.;)

Pokin' fun,

Jay
