your not going to get any great sounding exhaust because all 2.5is have equal headers. Why do you want more sound out of the car though? going too big on piping=loose your low end torque.

Brackets (x2)
Bushings (x2)
Bolt for brackets (x4)
Endlink (x2)
Nut for top of the endlinks (x2)
Nut for bottom of the endlinks (x2)
Bolt for bottom of the endlinks (x2)

IDK if NASIOC gets a discount but mention i-club and they'll give you 10%. My friend was the parts manager at the time (he since got promoted), I think he might have given me a bit more then 10%.
Wow thats pretty expensive!

Will do, Is there a certain day your friend is on work?

I have a full 3" catback. It sounds pretty good and we already had a discussion about the power.

Not really. The most expensive parts were the endlinks and they are still the least expensive option on the market. Is ~$40 really too expensive for all the correct hardware?

And My buddy got promoted. He's not in parts anymore.

It's superficial and all, but I love to hear a car when I'm driving it. How about an exhaust that will help performance? Anything worth while, even if it's not loud? I have an intake, so I figured I might as well get an exhaust to get the most out of my future tune.

There aren't really any power gains to be had out of the NA platform. You can maybe get 15hp without doing internal work.

Well, I meant he's not going to get that "boxer rumble". It just doesnt sound that great IMO if your not getting the boxer rumble from a subie, but to each its own. Yup, we did.

well $40 isnt that bad actually. I see.

I couldn't agree more. It may not rumble like a boxer, but it definitely has a rumble to it. I love my nameless muffler deletes

The nameless is by far the best sounding exhaust I've heard on a 2.5i without UEL headers. I was going to do Magnaflow + UEL but that money is just NOT worth it in my opinion. Too bad Nameless doesn't have a hatch version of the exhaust yet. They said they are in the process of making it.
