The cat in the rallisport headers is a high flow magnaflow cat. And the actual muffler section of the cb is something like 6" in diameter and 10" in length with a straight through 2.5" in the center. I'm thinking it does barely anything.

I decided to keep the other cat to keep the rasp away.

Didn't wan't to deal with the cops anymore because of my tint...so I tinted my front windows anyway lol. I went to a local tint shop and bought 5 feet of llumar ATC 50 for $25 and tinted them myself. The tint isn't even noticeable and it metered at 42%



But when you roll it down you can tell they are tinted

I have one. I cut the resonator our because I though I might reuse it but never did. It's been sitting for over a year. I'm in Canada but on the east cost. I'll give it to you if you wanted to pay for shipping.

Let me know if you want to see a pic.

I was looking through chips and plug-in mods just for giggles and came across this, can anybody tell me if it's legit? It says up to 50hp increase and I'm skeptical...

I'll totally see a pic and pay shipping if its what I need. I really only in need of the catback to be honest I'm not familiar with where the resonator is located.

Sway bars are a nice start to improve stability. I had the same wheels on my 2010. From factory the Impreza line (non wrx/sti) has no RSB.

Here is an old pic on mine.

Resonator is part of the stock cat back. It'll need to be welded back in place or a custom pipe used to gap the cut. The axel back is in good condition and untouched.

Are you sure you need the whole catback? What was damaged in the incident?

  • +1 Rear Sway Bar.
  • Upgrade to 10+ WRX Suspension or your choice of aftermarket. (KYB Excel-G)
  • Fairing for the roofrack.
  • Upgrade your headunit, makes your crappy stock speakers better automatically.
  • One step further, for less than 200$ you can get Polk DBs all around as well.
  • Don't fall into the hype of CAIs.
  • Dechrome/ Debadge?

Welcome to the family, we can't wait to see what you do to your car!

Anyone have a stock exhaust/WRX exhaust for a 2008 Impreza sedan or know of one for sale anywhere?

Looking to get some money back and would like to sell my Magnaflow Catback exhaust that is in mint condition.

The owners manual mentions towing, but I think it says just not to do it at all, or very very small loads.
