Didn't go back to COMPLETELY stock. Sold my Carbon Ti and got a stock midpipe with aftermarket Genome Replica axleback, so I do have rumble when I want it.

So I have had it for about a week now and can give some words.

Best mod I've done. I miss my carbon Ti but the looks I get with this make up for it tenfold. I'm getting tuned for it this weekend
Welded onto my helix catted downpipe. Cut out seven inches of the catted section


The bead


Mounted it down near the passenger axle

So it appears as if my cutout has got stuck closed by something. Had someone tap the button while I pushed up on the valve. POP, came off. Anyone else experience this with the BadlanzHPE?

Here is a farther shot. Excuse the mud. ran off course on AutoX Sunday (you can see my tracks when I went off in the video)


I absolutely LOVE it to death.
here it is from my GoPro from an Autocross.

Default DMH low profile?

So I'm no expert on exhaust cutouts but tried doing some research before posting on this thread. From what I've found out, DMH has some great cutouts. I wanted to get a pair for my boyfriend, he has a 2007 Subaru STi. What I'm not sure about is how to know which ones are right for his car...what would I need to find out? Would regular DMH electric exhaust cutouts be fine or are the low profile ones better? He's a mechanic so once he has them he'll know what to do but I wanted to surprise him with the gift..so I need to know what to get on my own! I'd appreciate the help! Thanks! (He mentioned wanting to get them but recently spent a lot on a new engine and turbo, so I thought I'd get these)

That's what I thought but then a lot of retailers sold it in pairs for whatever reason...gosh I'm a noob. Any more helpful points? haha

If he has the garage door opener I would get the remote controlled one. So you can open/close it with your garage door rear view mirror. My buddy did that at work and it is pretty cool. If not get the hard wired switch.

I have a friend with an 04 wrx wagon, built motor, 6 speed swap, 18g turbo with a 44mm ewg and a cutout that is placed just before the muffler on the axleback. It is awesome. I'll have to see if I have any video or if he does.

Well, It's started to leak when closed. Sucks that I've only had it for less than two months.

Been running my RRP cutout for nearly three months now. Only opened it a couple dozen times since installing it, and it seems to still seal quite well. I can feel small mists of water coming from it when my engine is running cold, but it seals well enough that any leaking is inaudible over my SPT catback. Still very happy with my purchase.

Has anyone else noticed how smooth shifts are with the cutout open? Especially heel/toe downshifts.

It's a wastegate on the low pressure side. Can't have quiet boost and can't have loud vacuum. Might as well just get an external wastegate and actually see some benefits from it.

Where can i find a smaller diameter cut-out for my ewg?? I want to be able to boost past people in 6th gear on the highway without scaring them or drawing everyones attention in a half mile radius I believe 38mm = 1.5 inch piping.

While I was putting in a new engine, I decided to put on the low profile 3" qtp cutout with wireless controller. I welded the pipe to my APS 3" catted downpipe. So far so good and pairs nicely with my 44mm ewg

Ok guys so here is my plan....
Im buying a electronic cut out and installung it on my 07 wrx (using my stock catback). Going to have a shop do it for me. And im NOT getting a tune.
From what i read its ok to not get a tune and run it like is. Ill have it open sometimes (daily driving) but for the most part itll be closed (since i live in cali and they are on the strict side lol)

My question...is it ok to not have it tuned amd just using my stock exhaust? I wanna be pretty stealthy about it...ive read some posts and it seems like it is ok but doesnt hurt to ask and get confirmation from you gurus...let me know!
Thanks!

If you're putting it in the midpipe, you're fine.

Are you stock downpipe?
