Didn't mean to offend anyone. I certainly am not the end all of exhausts. I bet it's just because of the video, I just thought it would be more rumbly and less buzzy but IDK. Still a very nice car and looks like you're modding everything correctly instead of just strapping on a random ebay parts.

just wondering why "smoothing = 5" is used? does the tuner not get more info with less smoothing of the graphs?

I don't mind what anyone else says. I just posted it because I know people like to try and compare before they make their purchases. Videos online really aren't the best at representing the sound, but people still like them. The last rev does sound a bit buzzy. I may try it again during some warmer weather with the car a little more warmed up. Thanks for the other comments, I appreciate it!

Smoothing is simply chosen based on the number of data points that the log had and how smooth the run was. Lower smoothing generally results in higher power numbers, but it is easier to see the shape of the curves if they are reasonably smooth. 5 seemed to work well for these runs, any lower and they started to look a bit uneven.

This was on 91 octane also, right?

And in your first post I think your torque ratings are supposed to be lb/ft not hp right?

Just ordered a 2011 today w/SPT catback... will be following in your footsteps soon! ;-)

Typo. Thanks. Fixed now.

You'll enjoy the 2011 WRX with SPT cat back!

I personally can't tell a difference between the SPT exhaust note alone and the SPT + Cobb DP note.
I can hear more turbo swirl towards the end of each rev, but that's about it. All in all, car sounds bad ass. Nicely done.

Thanks. I agree. You can hear a bit more snarl near the end of the rev.

I bet if I made another video and only revved to the same RPM's as the first "stock vs. SPT" video, people would think they sound the same.

TireRack.com Luke was extremely helpful during the ordering process.

Unless they have updated the site to show 16" wheels being compatible with the 2011, you will have to follow this process to order them (or give them a call).

The proper size tire is 215/55R16.

In order to get these things into your cart:
  • Click this link: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=508175
  • Select your car as the 2010 Subaru WRX
  • Choose the 16" Winter package (205/55R16 size)
  • Add 16" wheels and any type of 205/55R16 tires to your cart
  • Choose to shop for tires by size
  • Choose size 215/55R16
  • Chose whatever tires you want and add them to the cart
  • Remove the 205/55R16 tires from you cart

Then you should be left with 4 tires (215/55R16) and 4 wheels (16") in your cart. Place your order!

I just picked up my 2011 CGM sedan with SPT cat back. I love the sound also!.
Probably gonna go AccessPort stage 1, then stage 2 over the summer.

Nice video!

just out of curiousity luben, i know you have the cobb dp so why didn't you want to pair it with the cobb cbe too?

Or was it cause you like the sound of the spt cbe more than the cobb cbe?

Well, I do want something quiet, so the SPT fits that bill quite nicely. I also got the cat back before the downpipe, and got a very (very) good deal on it.

If someone wanted to trade me a COBB for my SPT, I'd probably do it, but I'm not going to spend a bunch of money just to match a brand name.

Sounds like a Subaru should sound....

Did you do your own install?

Thanks. Yes, I did the install myself. Putting on a catback is extremely easy. Jack up the car (w/jackstands), 2 bolts between the midpipe and downpipe, and then 5 (I think) rubber hangers. Hangers can be a bit of a pain, but it's really extremely simple. Takes 1/2 hour or so. Downpipe was a bit harder. Stuck bolts and generally everything is much harder to reach. Took me all day due to a stuck bolt. Probably should take a couple hours if everything goes to plan.

ohh okay, yeah i haven't really heard a difference between the two yet so i was just wondering if that was the case. is the piping the same for spt vs cobb or is cobb bigger?
