Also, dont get the UELs... They aren't CARB legal from my understanding.
I know but it's nice to have a reference despite the horrible quality. Wow you have found all the deals lol. Let me know if you happen to find another Tsudo N1 as I get impatient and give up right away lol. As for the headers I bet they would be fine if I got them with the cat included but Im gonna go catless anyways

People claim you 'loose power' because the shift in the power band is not ideal for daily driving. I never put a 3" on my car but drove a 08 OBS with 3" catless straight piped and it felt the same as my car.
Wow thats interesting to hear lol.

Yeah I will probably end up keeping my current setup and just switch over for "inspections" unless of course I find a friend of a friend who can do it for me with the uel header setup on. As for the tune that will be in the future at some point, Most likely once the headers, lightweight crank pulley, as well as some cams are installed. I'll be keeping this car for quite a while....

Yup that is normal for a warm or hot exhaust to sound different and less harsh or raspy than a cold exhaust. Maybe you knew that and were just being sarcastic? Couldn't tell.

No, Like honestly, it's louder when its colder. It is definitely raspyier at cold temps though.

Like if your on your radio, and turn up the volume to 35 that is morning.. when I am on way to school, it gradually gets quieter, as if it were playing the same song and slowly going to volume 30.

And no, I dont wake up and drive, i'll be up at least 1-2hours prior to driving.

I wonder what a midpipe swap to straight pipe would sound like LOL, my friend told me to do that. But he drives a 240, so i can't really take his advice haha

I dont know how to explain it.

It will be a bit raspier.. but i dont think you can hear it due to the HUGE axelback muffler.

No. It was just a comparison, but yes its loud. Id say you need your music at around 25 to hear anything decent. Any less gets cancelled out by the exhaust.

Shame it's a Tsudo... If you had an Invidia, I'd trade you. Supposedly, the SRS is the quietest of the N1 options and Invidia is the loudest. I want an Invidia so bad!

Not really worth it since they are basically the same as ours stock...

Basically... Im positive the struts from the 08 wrx are the same though. In 09 they revalved the struts and put stiffer springs on the wrx models.

Granted, it's not Tsudo. I always figured Tsudo to be kind of a knockoff brand anyway.

For all I know that could be a weld on. I have a apexi n1 in my garage but its no bueno. I ment tsudo specifically because I like the way it sounds. Plus I just dont feel like spending a lot of money on the exhaust for my i

Except it's not welded on.

Tsudo sounds the same as Invidia. Tsudo is the same in every way except the name stamped on the side and the price tag. But since it's a little different to fit the sedan, it won't sound exactly the same as the hatch counterpart. It will be extremely close, but not exactly the same.
