Default Cobb exhaust hangers

Price paid: $50 shipped
Installation: somewhat annoying
Improvement: yes
Negatives: none
Overall: positive

I am impressed with these mounts themselves, and how they work. Polyurethane is an awesome material. When I put on only the one on the mid-pipe, the muffler was already hanging higher than with the four OEM's. After a few months, I noticed that they disfigured slightly, but I still expect them to out last the car.
Taking off the original mounts was a pain. I used white grease and a screwdriver to get em off. Putting on the Cobb ones was even worse, but you're probably a tough guy so it will be no problem. I used grease anyway.
This product does exactly what it is supposed to. My muffler doesn't flail around anymore. One thing I didn't expect is the droning inside the cabin. Overall the exhaust is louder from the inside, and it drones slightly, off throttle around 4000 rpm. Now my passengers say my impreza sounds like a race car. Vibration also slightly increased and sometimes my coins rattle in the ash trey. The increase in sound is more than the increase in vibration. Even though the sound increase is slight, installing just two on the muffler might make it even less, if you can't tolerate any noise. For me, it was an added plus. 50 bucks well spent.

We used Cusco in the past, but now we make them here in the USA.

We still use blue because that's always been the color we've associated with the COBB brand.

Just alittle FYI. Glad you are enjoying the hangers!

Are you serious! When i ordered them I was told that they were Cusco! I specifically said that I wanted Cusco! I am now upset! I could have got REAL cusco ones from SPI for .50 cents less!

I got mine from Cobb about six months ago, and I was told they were Cusco. But, you heard it from the horses mouth, so disregard this post.

I installed the Cobb/Cusco hangers on Lord Bass' '02 TS on the 16th when installing his Brullen cat-back... I felt they went on fairly easily, but I used just a dab of silicone spray on each to make the install that much less of a headache. These things are GREAT!

Yep, these are worth the price.. It's amazing how soft the stock hangers are compared to these Cobb/Cusco units.

i also have the cobb hangers on my spo motorsports Turbo back exhaust. Man, these things are solid. the stock ones allowed my exhaust to swing all over the place. with these i could kick my exhaust tip and it doesnt move at all. i recommend them 100%.

not for nothing but i just a read a post that shows your car with an HKS carbon exhaust. I was told that that exhaust is US spec. I could be mistaken but if it is i would take it off your car right away and trade up for a real JDM exhaust like a kakimoto. since you only like jdm products.
