greddy: I don't know about the power it makes, but it sounds awesome. The tip is way too huge, though. Cut it off and weld on a smaller one. Anyways, I've heard that the EJ25 doesn't respond very well to muffler mods. I haven't heard what the others sound like, but the greddy on my car (combined with the borla headers) is really deep and rumbling. I like it a lot. Now I just need to add a turbo, so my car will have enough power to back up that mean-sounding exhaust note.

If money was no object, JUN titanium or HKS titanium system.

You forgot to add the converted stock WRX muffler for the RS. Works great with a stromung midpipe and sound is quiet except at WOT.

I have one of those Other (please say) mufflers and I love it. All jokes aside, I have the Prodrive WR Sport muffler and it's awesome. Awesome build quality (all stainless) and very nice mellow tone. I highly recommend it. No midpipe though, have to have one made.

I also wanted to see where could i get a stock WRX muffler, It sounds sooo nice, my bro has one but he's keeping it on his car for now... and the Stromung intermidiate pipe will still bolt right on? Any help? will be appreciated. -chris

i just installed my prodrive(the last one that mastro subaru had),deep mellow tone from 1k to 2k rpm, but QUIETER than stock after that...isn't it strange???cuz the inlet is 2.5"(but on the inside of the muff, it's twin-chamber) ......

looking for a midipipe too...probably a stromung, but the sttromung midpipe doesn't have resonator on it, i 'm very worried about the noise level.

Those of you with the Magnaflows...

What model are you guys running? I'm curious now, they look nice and are very well priced too!

Just need more details on what will fit and what wont, etc.

The muffler that came as part of the RalliSpec catback is a Magnaflow, but I don’t know the PN.
The sound is V8 awesome and rumbly (I’ve got a Borla header too, mind you). On decel, it sounds off a mild burble. Even Trey of Cobb Tuning (who’s probably heard it all) thinks it’s ‘awesome’. I strongly suggest a midpipe resonator to go with it – kills the ostensible mind-numbing drone.

I would have to say other. I have a Tanabe Racing Medalion installed on my car and I love it. It looks great and has a really nice tone to it.
I would suggest this exhuast to a lot of my friends. However, I don't see too many Subarus with the Tanabe installed.
Still great exhaust!
