Question Kinda dumb question about exhausts!

OK guys help me out with this... someone is selling an STi ver 3 exhaust and sent me this...
"Downpipe,mid-section and rear box,good condition 75."
questions:
1. downpipe = pipe that connects the headers to the midpipe, including cats?
2. rear box = muffler?
thats about $105 not including shipping. really i just want the muffler. what do you guys think?

1. yup
2. yup

shipping is gonna kill you. it will probably double the price. not worth it IMHO. why not just get a good old made-in-the-USA exhaust, or get a STi muffler from someone who has already imported a few in a big container crate (to save you on shipping)?

Well, I now have a Magnaflow muffler on my car - 2.5", and it looks and sounds real good. I'd go get the 2.25" muffler and have a muffler shop handle hooking it up to the Stromung midpipe. It's not loud at all, especially with a resonator. I'd get a resonator if you are concerned about noise. It also helps with the droning at cruise. My car is actually quieter between 50-75mph (cruising speed) than it is at 30 mph.

You could buy the muffler from Rallispec where I got mine, but I suspect you can probably get them locally too. I really like the tip on it - it's not huge and obnoxious looking, but it definitely doesn't look stock.
