Default S202 Ti axleback ?

I have what i believe to be a S202 titanium axle back, i was looking for some help to confirm its identity. after cleaning it up it doesn't quite look like stainless and the welds are silver rather than the typical golden welds on a stainless system. this thing is ridiculously light i weighted it and it came out at 8lbs, 7 5/8oz i was reading about s202, s203, s204 all having similar mufflers but the s202 not having a restrictor down at the front of it? anyways thanks for any input and or help indentifying it.

S202. Exactly like mine. Best sounding exhaust. Really give it a nice purr and sounds more like the Rally car.

That's Ti alright. Ti tends to turn blue when heated and you can tell at the hanger joint.

It was a total fluke finding it. I have a 2006 2.5i and i have been looking for a 2.5" catback or axle back. I had a few minutes the other day so i stuck my head in a JDM wreckers. this one was mixed into a pile of probably 30 exhausts. it was 2.5" and looked about right. so i picked it up.

The worst is that i put it on my car for a few minutes and it sounds like a riced out civic. the equal length headers and lack of a turbo wreck the sound completely. Unfortunately no rumble for me just a frog getting an enima

Im hoping i can sell or trade to something that will work better on my 2.5i and give it a nice deep sound

I took it back off the sound was embarrassing. I was thinking about UEL but i dont wanna sink that kinda money into my 2.5i. I also didnt realize how rare this thing is. At this point its either going away to await a 06/07 wrx or sti or im gonna let it go in favour of something that will sound good on my 2.5i

Right now i have a STI oem catback and it is actually a pretty nice sound just a little on the quiet side.

The S202 still has a restrictor. Instead of having it at the inlet, where it connects to the resonator pipe, it has it at the inlet into the muffler can.

It is a straight through design, with an 2.25" inner diameter, except for the restrictor..
The big tip has a cone in it that tapers down to 2.25" or so.
It does sound great and Sti has clips of the sound of this muffler on their site...

There was a thread on an AUS forum, where they removed the restrictor on an S204 muffler (and welding titanium to do this, is some work, I would think), and although it will increase the flow, I think I remember they said it starts to drone.

Welding Ti is typically done in an Argon bubble using TIG. That dull gray color is a dead giveaway.
