Just for reference here is some size differences from stock to SPT.

Here it is installed. So far I'm loving this. Sounds great and looks great to me. I'm pretty positive the stock 2.5i piping on the sedan goes from 2.5" at the cat down to 1" at the axle piping. Pretty sad. The SPT I believe is 2.5" from the cat all the way and then the tips are 3". I have not noticed any increase or decrease in performance.
Too sexy!

Here's the Pics of the setup, it wasn't easy but I got it done. Definitely would get a tune rather than Avo's updated basemap. I post a video of it running when it's not so called outside and when I get the tune done on the 17th.

Looks good, stealth black FM. Hope you kept the badging on the back. Catch a few WRX's sleeping.

No not yet, also I just de-badged the car last week because it's too much chrome. I put vinyl on all the chrome i.e (the window trim and the trunk). I still consider it a "SLEEPER" cause I don't have a TMIC.

For your other question, I would say 5-6 because of the oil pan which is a pain to take off. I felt the price was a little high and this was my first project on a car that I did with a couple of friends. I'm no where near a mechanic but since I currently live in Belgium and to have to pay someone else to do it, was ridiculous. Plus, I've heard a lot of good things about AVO. My biggest issue is still the upgraded basemap, which is safe for your car, but I'm going to add 5 more pounds of boost to hit 10psi. If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask. Like I said before I'm new to the Subie forum as well as working on my car so I will take any kind of help that I can get.

Cheers.

The numbers are from a dyno (EFI/ mustang dyno)
My tune is a road tune, not dyno tuned.

Just search for STI Mikey on here and you will find plenty of information on him. After doing lots and lots of research on tuners he is the only person I will let plug into my car for a tune. He does incredible work and for a very affordable price for us NA guys. He can do road tunes (cheaper) and he also dyno tunes at EFI/ ECS in Connecticut

I've looked into the raptor supercharger more than the avo. I wanted to do everything myself, and oil pan mods are +10 out of my league. Any one have anything good to say about raptor?

Avo to me seems to have all it's psi and power at the topend, our sohc's do not like to rev. If I keep my car for a long time I wanted to turn it into a low end torque monster.

What kind of numbers are you looking for?
