Get a custom one bent up and top it off with whatever muffler you want. Unless you're going for an all out performance NA motor, and are planning headers, hi flow cat, etc... then you may want to buy a mandrel bent work of art from someone like borla or something. Here's what I did with mine:

For the BD, I'd suggest either a custom job (will save you LOTS of money) or a Stromung. Stromung is pretty much the winn4r when it comes to the best sounding / performing exhaust for the BD.

Find a fujitsubo legalis R, thats what I have on my car and its pretty sweet. I should sell you mine since it'd look better on your car then mine but its kinda grown on me. But its expensive, nonetheless I suggest looking into it.
Peace,
Kyle

I'll throw another vote in for the Stromung. Fits the 2.5GT's bumper opening nicely, and sounds good. Of course, mine is paired up with an MRT header, so it doesn't sound like it would with a stock header.

Going the "custom" route certainly has the potential to be cheaper, but unless you've heard the muffler you decide to choose on someone else's Subie, you really have no idea if it's going to sound right until it's on the car. The Stromung is a pretty well-known Subie exhaust, I'm sure you could find sound clips on here if you search around. (Any N/A Subie with a Stromung should sound essentially the same).

Plays_With_Toys does. He has an OBX muffler with custom exhaust piping to the cat.

I have a magnaflow muffler with custom piping and borla headers. Sounds good, yet not incredibly loud. The muffler i think is perfect for the car, but its a straight through street series i think, and ran me almost 100 bucks so that may not be the route for you.


A few pics for you

i've got an OBX muffler as well, but mine is a different style:

http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f3...06/rims006.jpg

http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f3...06/rims009.jpg

it's not everyone's cup of tea, but i love the way it looks personally. i actually chose this style because it comes with a silencer, very useful for long drives, especially with passengers who may not be as into cars with loud(er) exhausts as i am.

i think i paid like $45 shipped for the muffler (maybe a bit more, i forget now) from eBay, and then another $147 for the install (included piping and all that good stuff).

a silencer would have been nice, I was actually debating that style muffler, but I didn't think it would fit the stock cut out, which, judging from your pictures is the case.

it's pretty close to a good fit, but mine comes out at an angle, so it's a bit hard to tell. i'll see if i have any straight on shots that can clearly show how the muffler is mounted.

Wow, looking at the first picture I like how little they had to bend the exhaust.

I've wondered what a really long glass pack (like a cherry bomb) running under the car would sound. That would allow for very small bends near the back bumper, where you could have a tip welded on. The longer the glasspack, the more deadening, so you could make a relatively quiet, straight through system. Just an idea...

yeah, the minimal bends in the piping was another big incentive to go with this style of muffler, as opposed to one that's more OEM looking. i wasn't willing to shell out the money for custom mandrel bent stainless steel piping for this car, so i just went with crush bent mild steel. there actually are quite a few bends in the new piping, but they're all very small, and so the path of the exhaust piping is still very straight. the reason for having the muffler come out an an angle was to eliminate that really nast bend right before the muffler (which on the stock piping, goes through a huge change in direction and angle), a trick borrowed from the Apex N1 exhausts.

as for your idea with the cherry bombs, it's intruiging, but the ricer in me does like to hear that loud exhaust roar every once in a while!
