Thumbs up 2K Legacy Stromung Muffler

I've got the Stromung dual tip muffler installed on my GT wagon. It took about 45 minutes. It helps to have car ramps. The muffler is a bolt-on unit with a perfect fit.

I've seen it installed on Jason's GT sedan before I got mine, and there is a definite difference between the wagon and the sedan. On the wagon, the tips do not extend past the bumper. On the sedan, the tips really protrudes beyond the bumper. I remembered that Jason commented on how he didn't like it sticking out so far.

I've been running it for about a week now. I can't tell any difference with the butt dyno. However, it has an incredible deep, mellow sound. Interior sound level is increased, but it's not annoying. I did notice a difference in interior noise when compared to Jason's sedan. It's definitely a little bit louder in the wagon.

Here are some pics of the installed muffler.

I have the same car but in Titanium color and I just installed the Stromung as well. This thing is D E E P sounding. The cargo cover ratles if not closed.

I'm loving this thing. It's not intrusive yet the low bellowing when down-shifting is loud sometimes, depending on how you drive. Also love bombing down the highway, it seems to get quieter over 75.

Have you noticed improved gas mileage? Or Power band? I have the automatic which now seems to be very confortable when going up in gears, not so squirley any more.

I have not yet put the lower pulley, can't wait until the weekend.

Good luck

Man, I love those GT Wagons. I wish I could talk my wife into swapping her Outback for one of those!

My gas mileage got worse because I have the tendency to drive it harder now.

I did notice another benefit of have a louder exhaust. It is easier to rev match now that I can hear it better. It also seems to get up to rev a little quicker when I blip the throttle.

BTW, nice paint job on the calipers.

I have been a little harder on it also to test the range, like 90 and have not been below 70. I'm getting 410+ miles on a tank until the warning light goes on.

Maybe it's that 90:10 split with the automatic.

In retrospect I'm very happy with the Stromung. So many silencers to choose from and tough to get one that doesn't have that crackling rice sound. This is a kick-butt muffler.
