Default COBB Cat-Back or Prodrive Axle-back?

I'm looking to upgrade my exhaust and had initially been sold on Cobb's Stage 1 Power Package but $900 seems a tad steep. I'm now considering saving almost $300 and going with Cobb's CAI and a Prodrive Axleback. In addition to the savings I'll have less warranty issues with an axleback as opposed to a catback.

Does anyone have the Cobb/Prodrive combo and if so, and sound clips?

Thanks,
Bill

if cost is an issue, buy the stromung midpipe & a used wrx muffler. you will get increased flow (performance) at minimal cost.

IMO either get the full cat-back exhaust, or don't get anything. Just an axleback is pointless. You aren't going to have any problems with the car runnig a cat-back, and if you do, and you take it in for warranty there is no reason for them to deny your claim.

I could probably still save money with the Cobb CAI, Prodrive axleback and get a custom midpipe made though I've heard they'll give you warranty issues.
