Default not sure if this is for you guys?

So I have a friends selling off a vf34 pinks and a pump. he is also going to be seling his ecutec tuned ecu but i think i want to run a protuned accessport. what im asking is right now i have a turbo back but can that set up be run with a stock down pipe and an sti catback. i know that it is a stock turbo so i dont see it being a problem. His car made 280 whp and 26X torque at the wheels at harmonmotive when it was tuned at 16.5 psi so im guessing i will loose somewhere around 40 or so at the wheels as opposed to running catless down pipe and fuji rmo1a exhaust. does this sound right? is it worth it? or should i just go catless and run an sti catback?

I would not run a vf34 on the stock downpipe. I am confused though, you say 1 minute you have a turboback, and the next you have a stock exhaust, which is it?

Im looking to go back to running just oem subaru parts as it seems that nothing really fits or is as reliable as oem parts. the spec c uses the same down pipe i believe and i think thats the turbo from that car. plus they (the cops) are really cracking down on people around me. i have a friends with a stock sti that was pulled over and they went under his car with a flash light and mirror and looked saying lots of "us" subaru guys are going catless. which i am right now.

you should go catless and run a real exhaust and just pay the tickets. You could also run gutted pipes and a sti catback which would work alright but it would be a waste imo. You def couldnt use his flashed ecu since its for a cat-less setup. I bet if you do go the gutted way you will get bored of the power and go with a real 3in tb.

shorty downpipe, keep the stock third and catback, you'll lose like 5-10 whp or so compared to using a real 3 inch unit, paint the shorty dp black or something, he wont know.

Any bolt on turbo can use any bolt on exhaust you want.
I run a TD06-20G on the stock exhaust. And I still get pulled over for exhaust to loud.

You definitely don't want that setup. How much does he want for it and what's your friends phone number?

you realize that the fine for getting caught removing a properly operating catalytic converter from a street driven vehicle is up to 10yrs in jail and a $10k fine per instance. It's not a $50 fix your exhaust ticket. It's a Federal Law, not a local or state law.


It doesn't hurt to run a high flow....but if they are cracking down i think your best bet would be to find a stock JDM STi exhaust(one converter instead of 2) and go from there. It sounds like your expected power levels are fairly moderate which will make it a more easily attainable goal given your setup.
