Will it have any power gain or loss?

Yes, you have to cut your bumper and it will stick out farther and not be perfectly centered in the pre-existing hole on the passenger's side. The muffler weighs about 11 lbs more than your axle back and I doubt you'd feel any difference. It'll probably sound a bit different though.

Yes, is your 08 a base or premium? The only ones who have done it had a 08 Premium or a 09+ WRX. I have a feeling the black diffuser is going to be more forgiving when you cut into it than the body colored bumper of a regular impreza or the base 08 WRX.

Search and you'll find it.

No, it doesn't stick out further.



And is pretty centered :



Had the resonator cut out of the midpipe to mitigate the "extra 11lbs" from the STi axleback section.

Your exhaust guy did a very good job. All the others who have put a STI quad tip on a WRX (as in pure bolt on...your resonator delete may have changed the geometry in a desireable way) have noted the tips stick out an inch or so farther than the stock WRX exhaust and was not perfectly centered in the cutout (closer to the inside of the car).

That looks great! What is that add on piece in the first pic? Custom made or aftermarket?

08-2010 STI and Legacies are tuning nightmares. No longer imported american made crap boxes that look lean and mean. Beautiful cars no longer Jap made. American. Chassis is completely different along with engine parts that make the cars terrable at holding a tune. Lots of chain reactions.

Default Will it fit: 2011 STi Sedan exhaust on 2010 WRX Sedan

I like the quad tip look and want to hear more boxer rumble which is totally absent from the 2010 sedan. I know the black diffuser would have to be cut/modified to fit the wider quad tips but besides that will it just bolt right on??

2010 is different animal vs the 09 in a lot of cases. It sucks trying to get parts that are supposed to be for 08-10 but won't fit the 10.... All new TMIC, so forget anything for the 09 on it. Redesigned body in some ways - grill, air inlet (already ported the grill area, no sound box). Electrical under dash is a bit different too, I tied in wires to gauges from the fuse panel and it's not the same as pics I was using from an 09.

TMIC is the same. Call your Subaru dealer and ask for the part number for an 08, 09, 10 WRX. I'd put money that it's the same PN .

Yeah, that guy's post is just one of those that you need to ignore. Not even worth calling him out on that garbage rambling .

Posting in here to start...hopefully someone will know.

So I'm going to be doing a TBE install this week. My question is:
What size o2 sensor socket should I buy? My car is a 2009 WRX 5dr.

(No...i don't mind spending an extra $5 on a specific socket. Please don't suggest I just use an open ended wrench or something. I want to ensure nothing gets stripped and that's why I specifically want to buy an o2 sensor socket. Just need to know what size.)

Thanks!

7/8" or 22mm.

A trick I've learned over the years with o2 sensors, is to use some catalyst (pb blaster), warm the engine up, get a can of compressed air, turn it upside down and spray it on the O2 sensor. Then put your wrench or socket on there and it pops right off. The compressed air propellant comes out super cold (thank the Joule-thompson effect) and cools it down very quickly and the male threads cool faster than the female and loosen the joint.

also one more tip. unplug the wiring under the car for the o2 sensor. then pull out the whole downpipe out,sensor and all. then you can remove and reinstall it in a vise or something. its much easier than removing it under the car.
