I'm using the supplied gasket and bolts. The stock donut gasket won't fit on the Invidia catback.

Any suggestions?
The stock dp to the n1 race?

I'm looking at the Borla catback system. Anyone have an opinion on the Borla system vs. other options?

Catted or catless sounds the same in my experience. I ran the SPT with the COBB (catted) downpipe and then later with the Invidia (catless) downpipe.

My car came with the HKS Turboback exhaust (catless) from previous owner. If I find an used 3" catted downpipe, will the DP compatible with the rest of the system?

I put the nameless axleback muffler delete exhaust on my sedan today. Holy crap is it louder than I remember. I knew from how throaty the stock exhaust is that it would be loud, but it's way more than a 5-10 db increase on low rpm driving. I think I'm gonna have to go invidia or something with mufflers. I want it low and rumbling but somewhere in between the stock and nameless axleback as far as loudness. I love the SPT but it's too drone prone.

It is a TurboSmart Dual Port set up in 50/50 mode. The exhaust is decently quiet at idle, doesn't drone too bad, but it's pretty loud around town. More details to come

Yup bone stock. I knew the muffler delete was loudish since I bought it off a friend, but it's really growling for a stock catted DP. Anyone wanna trade for something quieter?

Ok, help me decide what to put on my 2012 WRX Sedan...

1) Nameless 5" muffled Axleback with 3.5" staggered double wall tips

2) Invidia Q300 Cat back Exhaust with SS Tips

3) TurboXS Cat Back Exhaust with SS Tips

I'm looking for an exhaust that is slightly louder than stock and does not drone at all. Ideally I only want people (inside and outside my car) to know that I have an exhaust when I get on it. I don't mind a deep rumble at idle as long as it is nothing like the ridiculous cold start idle drone from the stock exhaust...

Which would you choose?

Just go Catless DP stock CBE
Cobb AP

You'd save money and make loads of power more as opposed to a $900+ noise maker

I am in the same boat. I want as low and deep of a rumble, loud idle is fine. I only want it slightly louder than stock, like a few db's. The nameless non muffled is a bit to hollow and loud.
