With the EA Subarus not not being the rust time bombs that the EA81's are this will be a long term keeper. Yes, the exhaust is tucked up closer than stock, and routed over the rear subframe, muffler is back in the stock position. I also had it made with a larger tube to support the new engine which I have decided on. Rather than going with an STi engine I am going with the 3.0 H6 and going to supercharge it at about 5 psi as low as possible in the RPM band. Next up is the gorilla bar + winch.
