haha, funny you mention that because I think its pretty quiet in general, but I do make many car alarms chirp when I drive by slowly especially on a narrow one way or something. Gotta love it!

Quick question.
So from what I've read the fitment between the sti and wrx is different but would a wrx evo2 bolt on an sti with no problems or would it rub on the diff?

I have a STI Greddy fitment and it fits the WRX with no problem... sorry, not exactly what you asked, but its a start. However, I noticed that the rear pipe gets close to both the diff and the lower control arm mount area. So far, it has not hit the bumper, arm mount, diff, or my CUSCO rear stiffening bar.

STi fitment will fit WRX. WRX fitment will hit rear diff on STi.

Evo2 hit my Driveshaft balance weight with Kartboy Short hangars. Went away with Kartboy XLs

Just put my Evo2 catback on last week with all 4 Kartboy XL hangars and I love it and the sound. None of the YouTube videos do the exhaust sound any justice so I made a few of my stock '04 WRX with it. Check 'em out: http://www.youtube.com/guts311

Got a great price on eBay for a new one from user kobetoba (did the Best Offer and got an even lower price than his BuyItNow). Definitely recommended 100%.

Is there a visual difference between the STi-specific and WRX-specific Evo2 exhausts? I just sent payment to a forum member on here for his Evo2, but I don't know whether it came off a WRX or STi, so now I'm worried. It will be going on my 2004 STi.

Here is a picture of the exact system I am getting (from the seller). Can anyone tell if it's the STi-specific design?

Typically, all GD WRX/STI have the same exhaust pattern, which makes the interchangeable, I sold a Cobb exhaust a while ago, that came off my 2002 WRX, that then on to a 05 STI.

You should be good.

I think that's true for most WRX/STi exhausts, but I've been reading that's not the case with the Evo 2. (Greddy even has two unique part numbers for the WRX and STi systems). Something about the flange between the axleback and midpipe sections of the WRX version interferes with the rear diff when you try to install it on a STi.

If yer worried, you can always take it to a muffler shop. They can weld n fix for cheap.

Anyone have pictures of the Evo2 exhaust mounted using the Kartboy extra long hangers? I'm wondering if it looks goofy, due to the Evo2 muffler being pretty large. And also wondering how low that makes the axle-back to midpipe connection hang, considering that it supposedly gives enough clearance to avoid the rear diff on 2004 STi's.

Anyone else having problems trying to connect the hanger on the axleback portion of the exhaust with the stock-length hangers? I couldn't quite get it up there so I just connected the muffler hangers and bolted the axleback flange to the catback pipe flange. Holds up just fine. The exhaust doesn't scrape but it does seem to sit SLIGHTLY lower than it should.

Pic for reference. 04 WRX. Stock midpipe and downpipe. I'll prob try extended hangers eventually if I can't figure it out.

Don't EVO2.... They are very restrictive to the tune of < 2.25" throughout the resonator. My friend's car made 13 WHP more at EFI Logics after a re-tune.

^^^Not surprised here.

I owned an Evo 2 on a Stage 2 Bugeye and always knew SOMETHING was up with it. No way could it be so quiet and mellow as well as free flowing. It never really held me back though as all I had was Stage 2 OTS-type map.
