Default Pictures of WRX and RS exhaust pipes?

I'm looking for a picture that compares the two systems. Anyone have one?

I'm wondering if I can use the WRX down and mid pipe, and still use the muffler that I have.


Thanks.

If you look at my other post in AFI you'll see a wrx mid pipe.

I will try to put on the aftermarket wrx exhaust in my GC8 tomorrow and I'll see what kind of mods it needs.

Yes, you CAN do it. I don't have any pictures though. I'm using a Stromung axle-back muffler with a WRX downpipe, midpipe, and rear section.

Only problem is, too many cats.

Rear section? Does the WRX exhaust have more pieces than the RS?

WRX exhaust consists of header, up-pipe, downpipe, mid pipe, axle back (rear section)

RS exhaust consists of header, cat pipe, mid pipe, axle back (rear section).

Sorry guys, I think I confused myself when I was writing my first post. I am using a WRX downpipe and midpipe with a Stromung axle-back (rear section). That should clear that up.

It's worked fine so far, though the midpipe sags what looks to be an inch or so lower than stock, and I have come to the conclusion that this is due to the downpipe hanging low even though I am using the tall Legacy uppipe.
