Anyone here have any experience with MXP on a hatch? Been looking online and there isn't much conversation about them.

I'm ordering a 2013 Monday and I'm hoping cobb will have one out by time I take delivery.
tbe doesn't "void" your warranty anymore than any other mod. It "could" make a warranty claim be denied by SOA if they find that the mod caused the damage. People have gotten entire motors rebuilt under warranty that had stage 2, just food for thought.

Some. Not many. From what I've seen 99% of the time you're denied if your ecu has been modified from stock.

Edit. I'd just rather keep it on the safe side with a brand new car.

Yeah I do get what your saying. It depends what you are trying to get covered under warranty. I went stage 1 pretty quick, I sided with the info that the stock tune wasn't good for the longevity of the car. I didn't want to be stuck with a car that was just out of warranty but having problems. That is strictly my judgment based off of different info I've found/heard, might not be the right way to do it but that's the route I'm choosing. I hope I'm right, lol

I agree with your judgement. I plan on staying in warranty for at least a few thousand miles. I figure if I have a factory "lemon" somehow it will show in the first 5 k or so... Motor or transmission wise. Theres no reason a truly healthy powertrain cant handle stage 1.I just don't want to pop a motor at 2k and get denied because I jumped the gun.

Now if some suspension component breaks at stage 2, yeah they'll probably fix it. But if you are stage 2 and spin a bearing, it's unlikely they'll rebuild it.

Agreed, you are pretty much doing what I did. My friend signed the paperwork for his 11 sti with the ap in his pocket and literally pulled over right away and flashed it. Lol he ended up having an oil leak on the turbo but Subaru replaced the whole thing. Barely any miles on it though and was only stage 1 at that time.

You've seen? You work for Subaru? My service writer says they don't really see many for engine issues. Yes, it happens but not as common as a small community like Nasioc makes it sound. He even commented that there is usually evidence of the car being driven pretty hard on the cars that have ringlnd failures(coincidence). I hope that my fierce loyalty to their dealership will have them side with me if I need the work done at some point. 4 cars since 07 all traded back into them for another. I hope they plan to keep me.

I've read that some dealerships will flag you for any evidence of tampering. I just think you should be honest with them and respectful. Try to go to mod friendly dealers.

I've observed from threads on here is what I am referring to. I am not claiming that I work for Subaru. I never once said to be dishonest, not sure where you are coming from with that. I understand your service writer may see few engine issues, but the few that arise are a lot less likely to get approved for a warranty claim on a flashed ecu when it comes to an engine failure, or even a trans issue. The idea of mod friendly dealerships is great, but SOA has the ultimate say in warranty issues, unless the dealer is eating the cost out of pocket they can't control a whole lot when it comes to claim approval...unless they are willing to lie out the ass to the big wigs. If your dealer is willing to do that for you more power to ya, but it's not that common.

I'm not saying there are a TON of engine failures. I'm just saying that if I'm one of the small number, I'd rather be stock to find out about it... At least for a little while.

Edit. not trying to turn this into a warranty issue debate, this is an exhaust thread. If you want to discuss this any further feel free to shoot me a pm.

I've been looking through every page and I can't make up my mind lol. I need a quad tip cbe for. A 2012 Hatch that is louder than stock but isn't so obnoxious that cops will bug me often. I don' mind drone. Most of my driving is city. I'm thinking Cobb, Perrin, Q300, or even CNT. I think the CNT is loudest? I took off my Greddy Ti-C because I got a court summons . Can is too obvious

Default WRX Nameless Performance Quad Tip Axleback Muffler Delete

Hey guys,

I bought the nameless performance quad tip axleback muffler delete a couple months ago, installed it for a day, then took it off. I found it to be too loud for me. Talked to nameless performance to get it returned and they were willing to refund since it was in a brand new condition (I literally had it on for about 2 hours), however I would have to pay for shipping which would cost around $100 since I'm in mass and nameless is in washington.
They suggested I should put it up for sale on NASIOC, so I just became a member...not sure if I can post any item for sale yet.
Posting in this thread as it is relevant to custom exhausts...hopefully I'm not breaking any rules?
I've put up the exhaust for sale on craigslist, link is http://worcester.craigslist.org/pts/3573505890.html

Inbox me if interested, thanks.

His however, has one side high and a little uneven vertically and the other side is too low by an inch but is even vertically. We played with various angles on the rubber mounts and loosened and tightened the bolts and all the usual adjustments but I could not get it lined up. It looks like he needs a shorter hanger or the angle is wrong. Just curious if others have had any issues since mine fit so perfect.
Were you able to solve the issue? I have the exact same problem with 5" mufflers. Driver side is high and uneven, passenger side is a little low but even.

SPT or whisper. Both give you more sound but do not attract attention.

What do you guys think of the new invidia dual n1 cbe for the sedan?

Reviews are limited for this exhaust and I just wanted to hear other people's opinion on this cbe.

Thanks everyone.

I'm planning on getting the Cobb CBE for my hatch, since it's quiet to stay stealthy but loud when you want it. Perrin is also a canidate, but I'm not sure if it's a cop magnet lol.

Meaning no taper to fit the donut gasket of the stock downpipe. Pretty sure all Invidia catbacks are designed to mate up to aftermarket 3" downpipes.

If it's anything like the other N1, it's going to be very loud. I've heard the single exit in person. It sounds absolutely amazing, but it's not stealthy in the least bit.

I have it. It sounds absolutely amazing. Ive had it on for about 1000 miles now and its broken in and there is a slight drone in cold weather ~30'F hwy speed. However, it does come with silencers that work very well.
