You must have damaged ear drums if you think the Cobb is worthless.

Hmm, see I drive a sedan and I do have a slight issue with noise at approx 70mph. There is definite resonance at that speed/rpm. If I have an empty trunk, it can be annoying. A few coats in there and it quietens down a lot.

I have no idea what sort of resonance you'll get, or not get, with the hatch.

would you consider it annoying at that speed and would it bother you after a while driving?

I'm thinking a little dynamat might do the trick on the spare tire well and under that area.

I personally like the TurboXS exhaust. It is cheap and it relatively well built from what I have read...some rattling issues have been noted due to contact with the heat shield which I believe kartboy hangers and some exhaust wrap was able to cure. Sounds mean, but not really loud:

YouTube- TurboXS WRX Sedan Exhaust
wow, really? I'm a little surprised that they would put something out that's that poorly setup that it would cause such a rattle.

That sounds horrible in that video. I do like the actual exhaust sound but I think I'm leaning to the perrin, yeah it's more but it'll just match the header setup and all that I'll be putting on a year or so later. I'm kind of a stinker for matching products.

I might have to wait a little bit on the exhaust though because I'm going to get a 3M clear bra installed on my car so I don't have to stress about bugs and junk messing up my front end! It would really suck if I got chips on the front end and seeing as I do a fair amount of interstate driving I need to protect that ASAP before I go putting an exhaust on her.

I don't know if you like it or not, but I think the sound is just enough. Not all of these rattle, but that is the common problem I have heard with that exhaust and the invidia. Perrin is known for the exhaust whistle, but they are repairing it free of charge.

Just be careful about the 3m bras. Call the company and talk to them. A bunch of them were yellowing in the first month on the car. A friend of mine went through two of them on his RS4, then they switched companies (sorry, I don't know who) and the bra held up.

well the guy I'm going to is in Tampa. He deals only in top quality materials and he does some friken awesome work. He's always posting up the stuff that he does on my site and damn, he's got some pretty cool stuff that he'll turn out.



He's one of the advertisers on one of my sites. I have to call him up and schedule it all out and all to get it done. I'm hoping to get it done this weekend if not next. I was going to order the exhaust this week but I think I'll wait a little bit before I do it. I'll wait till she's past the break in period maybe. or at least 3k miles before I start with the other mess. hell I'm at 100 miles as of right now and by tomorrow evening it'll probably be around 250ish.

I did hit close to redline today but I had to put the dumb mustang in his place, that was a requirement, lol. But yeah I've been averaging around 22.6 mpg on this tank so far. I'm loving all the features of this car, so glad I chose to get it.

It's a great car, definitely enjoy it. Watch the redline thing or at least posting it. I don't know about your dealership, but mine is a member here. They troll for messages like that.

Definitely, good luck!!!

you shouldn't have to worry about that one at all with a Cat Back Exhaust (CBE) which this is what I'm looking at getting. Typically the warranty comes into play when you start with up-pipes and down-pipes. And it wont necessarily void the warranty. Only if it's the cause of the problem that you are having but sometimes they will use it as a cop out.
