Default Kronos Performance's 08+ STI / 11+ WRX Magnaflow Catback Review

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:

I'm in the same boat as you... I daily drove a s14 with a loud exhaust for 5 years before getting my WRX so I was happy with the stock exhaust but wanted a bit more grunt.

So far, every exhaust I've heard besides the SPT exhaust sounded a tad bit too loud for what I wanted but after your review, it makes me want this exhaust. Damn you!!! Now I have to spend more money!!! arghhhh

Were the Perrin exhaust hangers necessary? If not, why did you decide to use those instead of the stock hangers?

Thanks for the review!

They aren't necessary per say however they are supposed to help with movement and keeping droning down. I mean, I hear zero rattling and on the highway, you can make it sound like you don't even have an aftermarket exhaust. I highly recommend it.

If you want to hear what it sounds like at WOT, I have a dyno video:


And you're welcome on the review
