It wont bolt right up, two different diameter pipes. you will have to have an exhaust shop change the flange with a pipe diameter reducer of some sort so that the two match up.

You are going from a tiny diamter exhaust to a turbo exhaust with probably 2.25" piping at the least

The Flange will have to be changed, and hangers will have to be rehung.

But if you get a good shop, it'll still be cheaper than most stock fit aftermarket stainless steel exhausts.

I'm happy with my STi muffler. FYI - it's 2 3/8ths inch piping.

If you have an outback, you'll need the tip lengthened too. Outbacks have a longer bumper.

Well, any wagon you'll want to lengthen the tip. It's not 100% necessary.

he didn't need an 8" extension just for the tip...but he was probably saying that it was significantly longer than the sedan bumper. I believe it's more like 8" tip instead of a 4" tip.

Haha, I drive a 2.2L wagon because I can't afford a turbo. Not that I'm not comfortable with my manhood I always figured it was the guys with flashy cars, not fast cars. Could be one in the same sometimes, I guess...
