Default SPT Performance Cat Back for 2.5RS

I was wondering if SPT performance catback as shown in this (you'd have to scroll down a bit) is any good. I mean $471 for cat back straight from Subaru (I know it was manufactured by brospeed). Or is it better for me to get some aftermarket exhaust perhaps Stromung like most of people have?

For starters the SPT exhaust appears to be only 2.0" not 2.25". Basically its stock midpipe with a brospeed muffler. Also installed a Rallitek exhaust it was 2.25" and sounds great. The SPT sounded good but the Rallitek is much deeper.

I'll try to get video clips next week of both cars so you can compare.

I had the SPT/Brospeed axleback on my '00 when I bought it new. It sounds really nice, extremely muted but a little growly if you punch it.

Piping is identical to stock though, which is under two inches, internal.

Honestly, not worth it. Get a Stromung, Borla, Cobb, RalliTEK, OBX (the latter two are identical basically), custom Magnaflow....

Anything that's 2.25."
