^^ Mine was a tight fit too but with a little playing I got it lined up. BTW, yes it is a CBE but they designed it to go with their downpipe, it is a flat flange, not donut type like the stock CBE.

I have about 3500mi on mine and I would recommend it to anyone who's on a budget, it sounds great, looks awesome and is defintely worth the money. IMO, they are selling them way too cheap and people automatically assume they are Ebay crap, I can tell you the SRS stuff is very good quality and I'm happy with their system! The downpipe really woke up the sound too, I love the way it growls and it doesn't piss off everyone in town when I'm just cruising around.

They accepted my best offer of $200. Hopefully I'll have the catback by the end of next week. I'll post up more videos when it's installed.

They also took my offer of $200. I received mine last week and the exhaust looks great. Perfect, beautiful welds and what looks to be quality metals. My motor is out of my car right now so no testing yet, but I'm excited. I have the midpipe that came with it for sale if anyway is interested in a pipe with a cat and flex

^^ That's what I paid too using the best offer option. $250 shipped total is a good deal for this catback.

My flex section is rubbing on the bracket around the driveshaft, the flex section pretty much sits right up against it. Anyone else experience this?

^^Mine is good to go. Are you sure it's not due to your downpipe flange being slightly off?

I have the same issue, although the exhaust doesnt exactly move very much. Im not too terribly concerned about it though.

I was very happy with the sound that I am getting now with my Prodrive DP, Perring Third Cat and this catback. Its hardly noticeable from inside the car, doing around town driving. Doesn't get terribly loud when putting the boot to it, but I can definitely hear it. Tomorrow I'll take it down the highway, see if I get any annoying drone.

im debating on this type-re, or the surewin cobb replica. both have gotten pretty solid reviews on here. im just a little worried about the midpipe rubbing the driveshaft area. i had the old srs fartcan exhaust and it held up just fine.

im still waiting to see/hear a roadside soundclip of the type-re though.

I like the sounds clips i have heard, and i like the fact it has a resonator in the midpipe. I'll be getting one of these come spring.

I've had both. I went from a Surewin Cobb replica to the SRS Type RE. The Surewin was eventually louder and more raspy, raw sounding. The type RE is deeper. It sounds better and is better quality construction in my opinion. Also, it has a flex section and a resonator and the Surewin has neither of these. The Type RE fits better too.

^ thank you sir. great info, i prefer the deeper burble over the raspy/tinny sound that the surewin seems like it might evolve to over time.

what type of downpipe is yours mated up to? im running an invidia catless.

its funny how everybody talks crap about ebay. all the parts people buy for top dollar are made in the same Chinese factorys as the cheaper stuff. We have just been getting ripped off by these companys for so long that we think things should cost that much. i bought a EL header off ebay and made 18 more whp and 22 ft lbs over an expensive UEL header.

SRS makes some quality stuff. I've had the N1 since 2007 and its held up really well. No rust and a little clay bar and it looks good as new. Now i'm going to buy the Type RE but i'm going to use the midpipe from the N1 without a resonator.

I've been thinking about buying the SRS N1 catback and leaving my resonated midpipe in place. Please let us know how your hybrid SRS fits

Just installed the type re on my 06 wrx an hour ago, no fitment issues whatsoever. Quality is superb, welds look amazing and it sounds great!

I went from an Hks Hi-Power exhaust to this and they sound very similar. The srs is actually quieter, for now.

I just installed the srs type re on my 04 a few hours ago. It's way quieter than the magnaflow that came on my car. It also seems like better quality that the magnaflow too.

Cool

Got the SR*S Type-R and it's great, painted it (heat paint, flat black) so hopefully no rust problems and after over a year and two winters it's still good. Here she is up on the dyno for sound bites:

Bought this exhaust and just installed it last weekend.

Anyone else getting a slightly crooked can?
I have a hitch on my 07 wrx wagon but that shouldn't matter. I bought 4 long Kartboy exhaust hangars for all support points.

Other than the aesthetics of the can, I love the sound! has a nice deep rumble when you accelerate but still like stock when you're at idle and cruising. Does not have the raspy sound at all. no bees in the can sound what so ever.

Actually now that you mention it, mine is slightly crooked too... not as much as yours though. I wonder if you can bend one of the hangers a bit.
