In my opinion it may be the best sounding Subie exhaust. I guess with any aftermarket exhaust you're gonna get some sort of drone compared to a stock muffler. But I don't really hear it, its less of a deafening tone and just sounds like
slightly muted racecar. It's mean and deep! I highly recommend, you should get it. What are the other brands you're looking at? Or is the question: no cbe?

Did some research I think cobb cbe is the route I want to go. I considered Invida g200 but I'm not crazy about the muffler tip.

I;ve got a cobb axle back with an hks mid pipe (adds an extra resonator) the exhaust is deep and throaty and has very little drone on the highway compared to my old his carbon ti, that was drone city!

Loving it. Just wish Subaru would have kept making STi Wagons past the Bugeye

What year is it and if you don't mind my asking...how much did you pay?

I doubt you'll be disappointed with the Cobb. Those Invidias are all loud, despite what the description may imply. Thats the one brand that I've actually heard many of in person, they're popular. I think it's because they're inexpensive for the quality of material used.

An alternate suggestion: Prodrive axleback. Probably the quietest, best sounding exhaust I've heard.

I'm running one with the stock mid-pipe on my wagon. Oval tip so stock-like appearance as well.

That is a good choice too. But aren't they kind of expensive and harder to find?

I have a borla hush catback before I got a catless downpipe it sounded amazing and very quiet no drown or anything. I installed a catless dp and it got louder bit still almost silent under 3k .
I want to get a Cobb catted downpipe soon to really quiet it down plus I have to do emissions in a couple months I think

I got the cobb DP so mine is the full cobb TBE. It's great, able to tune to a lot more power and it has a bit more grunt w/out being too loud. But once you get on the throttle past 3k it gives off a pleasing scream.

Have a question about sway bars. What are you guys running? It seems like 22mm for front and rt tuning recomended an adjustable 27mm for rear?

I'm running 24mm front and rear from whiteline. If you haven't done a control arm swap from a sedan, your options are limited for front sway bars with 24mm being the biggest you can get.

How do you want the car to handle? That set up will give you boatloads of oversteer. I wouldn't recommend having the rear sway bar be bigger than the front unless you have a specific goal in mind. For daily driving, having the front and rear the same size, or the rear a little smaller will give you the most neutral set up.

If you like the Cobb you may want to check out the AVO catback exhaust. Have this on our wagon and like it a lot, running with the stock dp it is quiet with a nice tone. With a down pipe I think it would probably still sound nice with out being really loud.

The white line website says 22mm for the front on a wagon. I think that's what came with the car uninstalled. Just looking for a rear sway to match to give a little better handling for a daily car and install before I go for a pro alignment. I think it handles well now with the coil overs

Thank you! In that photo I had just put the grill surround back in, still undecided on what to do about the center. Here it is before, much worse:

Thanks guys for your advice. I wish there was a wagon specific thread for tech stuff ie exhaust, suspension, wheels, etc.

^ I do too. Maybe if we put up a big enough stink they'll make a section for it. Someone could start a poll???

If you have questions about suspension, I found this thread very helpful:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1303381

-there's also another thread on here about posting your fitment setups with pics and details. and it's wagon specific.
