Default another exhaust question...

this isnt as simple as saying, "get a WRX exhaust"..

i already have an EBAY 3inch TBE

i want to keep the catless DP i have, and put on the sti cat back... i have the adapter to make it from 3inch to stock sti.

i want to make my car quieter (due to a ticket). so i bought a stock 05/06 Sti exhaust...today i looked and compared them (the DP to CB flange). it looks like the stock CB flange is tilted a little....

my aftermarket DP is tilted the the opposite way of the STi CB... *to me it doesnt look like itll bolt*

i dont know if i explained it right....but if u know if it does work let me know.. i just looked at it *without lifting up the car*...i didnt try to bolt it up yet... ill try tomorrow... ill also take pics if it doesnt fit...

pix are always good. i think i understand what you're saying. its possible that you may have to take it to a muffler shop and have it modified. or maybe a WRX exhaust is different from the STi exhaust.

im no guru, just throwing out ideas. if you have a friend with a wrx might wanna check and see if there's a difference...

If I understand your delima correctly, I had the same issue mating a Skunk 2 axle back to my TXS turbo back and mid-pipe. With another set of helping hands we cut the Skunk 2 flange (that mates to the mid-pipe) turned the bolt holes so everything lined up with the mid-pipe flange, then installed the axle back. With the axle back installed we marked both the flange and axle back and labled the marks 1 and 2. I took the axle back to a weld shop and he rewelded the flange aligned with the two marks. Sorry for the long winded post, but I didn't know how to describe the process w/o pictures.

shouldnt cost much for them to lay some welds, specially since its only one flange, no bending or anything

If you do the cutting yourself the welding takes about 15 minutes. Mine cost $20. He opted to stick weld it vs using a mig welder and used a 316 rod which worked well on the 304 SS exhaust. The key is making a clean cut and aligning the desired pipe orientation correctly.when making your marks.

Unhappy exhaust...

hi, i am new to this forum, not new to subaru, but just bought my first subaru turbo car...1987 gl-10, 68k 4x4 5spd wagon. i need to redo the exhaust, as it is just a glasspack from the trans-back...is there any way that i can get the "rumble" out of this car, w/out spending high$ on bling pipes?

you wont get the rumble that you want out of an EA82t. you can open up the exhaust and make it sound better, but it wont be the same...

now if you drop an EJ20G into that thing, then you can get that rumble you are looking for. hoever that cost more than some bling bling pipes...

yeah you can do a 2.5" turbo back stright pipe. it will be loud. you may want to use a resanator or muffler somewhere in it though...
