Default OEM wrx catback on NA wagon

Should I get it? He's selling it for 50. Would it fit mines though? Also would it be any louder than my stock right now? Also would it be bolt on mines?

youre going to have to either...

a)rotate the flange on your stock piping so it will bolt uo

or

b) buy and adapter. there were some "ms3 adapters" on rs25.com. you should check there.

Well OP, if you searched instead pulling a N00b move, you would have found that the WRX will be little, if any louder than your stock exhaust.

I have a WRX exhaust on my 08 2.5i and it definitely is smoother at the top.
You will notice that you have to press the pedal a bit more on the low end.
It is definitely not louder, but just enough so you can listen to the RPM and not look down at the tac.
Worth it if you don't have to do any pipe work. Bolt on in my case.

First, you should fill out your profile so that we can tell what kind of car you have. Different answers for different years.

You will not get the rumble from a cat-back. You have to change the headers.

This topic has been covered many, many, many times. You can find all the answers you are looking for if you do a little searching. You will also save yourself a lot of flames if you come back and offer a bit more information about what you are looking for, your car type, etc.

I have a cat back for a wrx and I didnt do anything special, it just bolted right up. Everything was the same between the 2010 OBS and 2010 WRX exhaust

edit: This is NOT my video but it is the one that convinced me to buy it

^^^ You do realize that the video you posted is NOT an OEM stock wrx catback. It's an aftermarket company called Tsuedo.

The original post was specifically asking about OEM wrx catback, and the fitment onto his "N/A wagon" of unknown model and generation. Posting up a link to a Tsuedo catback (which is not even your car), doesn't help answer the question.

Why do you think people don't search anymore? Because no one takes the time to even read the original questions and reply correctly.

If you want better sound go with an OEM STI axle back. Thats what I have on my 99 Impreza L. I just cut the flange off the axle back, rotated it, and it bolted right on.

I have a related question for those of you out there. Would putting an oem sti exhaust on my NA 99 Impreza L get rid of the back pressure in the exhaust system. I am having a little hesitation in my excelleration in first and second and am wondering if this exhaust is contributing to the problem?
