So some of you know that even though we sell parts we have been holding off on buying any actual parts for a while. Finally decided to modify my 2009 STi which is completely stock. First modification we decided to go with is the Magnaflow Catback Exhaust with the Quad Tips which replicates the factory catback.
Now just a little background on myself personally. I'm days away from being 28 years old (August 1st), I don't want a stupid loud car anymore but I do miss actually hearing my car. I enjoyed driving and knowing that people can't hear my car miles away and I'm not flooring the vehicle. I basically wanted some more bass in the exhaust...low and deep with the typical gurgle sound of the Subarus.
After listening to a few clips on youtube of people who had it, it sounded great to me and plus I've always been a fan of Magnaflow on other vehicles.
One thing that worried me at first was realizing it didn't have a resonator, so wasn't sure how loud it was going to be but I still had trust in Magnaflow.
I decided to take my car to Superior Automative in Trenton, NJ off Rt 130 (http://www.superiorautomotivenj.com
) and they were great. They had it installed in about an hours time and didn't cost me an arm and leg. I highly recommend them if you're in NJ. Also note I did use Perrin Exhaust Hangers (5 of them).
So basically after the install and driving it...I LOVE IT! Its perfect for me. Its low and deep, I should be able to drive past cops without them thinking they should write me a ticket for loud exhaust and I can hear my exhaust more so than factory.
Here are some pictures of it during the install:
