Whew, thats low .....

Hit me up if you want to setup for auto-X type driving.

I don't recomend perf. driving that low.

The front suspension geometry is out of whack that low.

One way to visually tell is if the lower arms are already horizontal before any movement. I'll bet they are past horizontal in the rear for sure and possibly the front too.

if you can find a cobb, or a pro drive would be the best 2 that I heard. Then you can always stick any impreza exhaust with 2 long rear hangers...your exhaust tip will be just a bit short.

I have a WBR catback and I always get comments on how quiet it is from out side the car for a 3" exhaust. It's a great sounding, low pitch exhaust.

It worked reasonably well on my first Forester...



...but now I think it looks sort of dated.

I just had the cobb full turboback exhaust put on my 07 FXT. It sounds fantastic (not loud at all at idle) with a real low rumble at lower RPMs and a throaty scream at open throttle.

Here's a youtube video of the cobb turboback on an FXT:

What I like most about the cobb catback is that the muffler looks stock. No one expects the awesome sound it makes to come out of a stock looking forester.

I should mention that if you're going to do an exhaust on an FXT, make sure you also install some type of engine management. I use the Cobb accessport, but there are also open source alternatives.

I'm another fan of the Cobb turboback exhaust. I put it on a few days ago, and it sounds GREAT!
