Default STI Genome Axelback on a 2.5i?

Does anyone know if the STI Genome Axelback(SPT Performance Muffler for WRX) will fit 06-07 2.5i? Or will this require a muffler shop to do a custom install?

I bought a used SPT axleback previously installed on a 06 WRX and tried installing it on my 07 2.5i Wagon. There's 2 inch gap between the axleback and rear exhaust pipe flange.

You will need to get it extended and welded by a shop. Even the flange needs rotated I believe.

It cost me $75 at a shop.

The axleback needs no modification, it should bolt right onto any 02-07 Impreza. The midpipe would need to be extended 2" though.

Axleback doesnt require any fabbing. All axlebacks are usually the same size. its the midpipe that is shorter. The WRX/sti midpipes are shorter by 3". they connect to the downpipe. Ive installed 3 exhausts , WRX axleback, STi axleback, and a turboXS axleback (currently on txs) and havent had to fab any of them.

I dont know why some ppl on here say they needed their axleback extended, maybe they ****ed up and were installing a catback system and instead of extending their midpipe they extended their axleback.

on my 06 wagon, i started a thread on this a while ago, i needed to lower the axleback or extend the exhaust to get it to fit onto my wagon.
