That is a nice looking exhaust but 1300+ when it's on sale is still a bit much

::WOW:: That IS one sexy exhaust!! I'd love to know more about it but I'll wait until you get it on before I even start to ask.

Any clue about weight yet? (not super important but still curious)

Emailed MadDad yesterday, we'll see how long this takes...

It's on the car. Haven't driven much yet though.

It's full 3". Flow isn't even out of both sides but overall I think flow is still good. The resonators really seem to do their job but unfortunately they make it quite heavy. I believe it is actually a couple pounds heavier than stock.

Do a stock exhaust with either a race ready or a DMH cutout

Have you considered any of the Nameless Performance stuff? Excellent quality and great fit/finish. I am currently running one of their axlebacks and couldn't be happier. I had a TurboXS GT series on my '12 hatch and even with tons of raamatt and ensolite it was too loud and bassy for a daily commuter. Needed something more civilized and family friendly. Maybe take a look at their dual 5" muffler axleback/catback?

Ever since Nameless came out with their original (Magnaflow muffler) exhaust for the hatch, people seem to think Nameless is quiet. Really, that was their only exhaust that was quiet. All the other ones are pretty loud. A small 5" muffler isn't going to do much. I wouldn't expect it to be quiet, and it's not. If you want quiet, then the Nameless with Magnaflow muffler is a good option. If you don't like that one, then I'd start looking at other brands.

People that complain about catbacks being $1,200+ make me laugh. You better not ever buy an actual sports car. Their catbacks are 4 grand+ in most cases. We actually have very reasonable prices for most aftermarket parts in comparison.

I think people are probably comparing the 08+ Subaru exhaust prices to the Honda exhaust prices, which are usually $300-600 for a catback. They're all simple can or small mufflers with minimal piping and 1 tip, so it is kind of expected that they're cheaper. The 02-07 Subaru exhausts are mostly similar styles to that, and they're also in that range (although on the higher end of the spectrum).

The higher end cars definitely have much higher aftermarket parts prices. Some of the parts are extremely high quality (honestly, most of the Subaru aftermarket parts are only OK), but I feel that some of the higher prices are simply due to the market being willing/able to handle them (ie. people have more money to spend on a car, so they'll have more money to spend on the aftermarket parts as well).

Not complaint nor comparing just saying versus others even for our cars such as invidia for 600 on sale to 900 and even when buying borla for my 3000gt not more than 850. i would spend the money if I planned on building for more than 400 hp, but since its unnecessary I think the extra 400 can be used towards a number of other parts

Hmmmm, interesting conversation as I feel you are all right in one way or another. I guess I can relate to both sides of the story as I've been known to be super stubborn about buying the higher priced items for ether quality or status of ownership then in the same week buy something that just does the job, despite looks, popularity and budget.

I've spent more money on a useless intercooler that is incredibly built, high quality and will last probably forever but yet bought Rota's which are on the lower scale of excellence. I'll wrap my whole interior in beautiful Alcantara and put budget Pro Sport gauges on the dash.

I play both sides of the field and honestly don't care... I love my car how it is and will always want something different but I'll buy a $600 exhaust or maybe a $4000, who knows. As long as I like how it looks and sounds, it's good for me.

It makes me laugh that someone would compare aftermarket parts for a Ferrari to a Subaru. You've got to remember, they're upcharging like mad on those "real sports cars" because that's what the market will bear. $4000 to someone with a Ferrari is like me going and getting a box of donuts, in most cases. They're gonna say they spent 3 years in a monestary doing r&d and sourced the ore for the stainless steel in mines they dug with their own shovels, but come on now.

Who said anything about a Ferrari? BMW, Nissan, etc.

Exactly!
I spent $3000 for a Meisterschaft Cat back for my '08 M3.
I thought $1300 for an Invidia Turbo back on my '12 hatch was a reasonable price for a solid exhaust.
(I can't believe you're ditching yours Jason?! I bought mine solely based on your youtube video clip...)
BTW, just did a run to Vegas and back -- no headache, bleeding ears, numbness or profuse sweating. I love it!

I assume by Nissan, you mean a GTR, because I'm not seeing many $4k Altima exhausts. Then you're talking about some vaguely homoerotic sounding exhaust from Germany where you're getting blasted by the Euro exchange rate and is probably made with every bend welded from scalloped tubing pieces and it comes with a box of pretzels, an orange, and some Hefe.

But really now, you're getting blasted by luxury markup for those cars.

I've been flip flopping a lot on the exhaust for a while now. As I will keep to my guns and say that I really do LOVE this exhaust and I feel it's built really well and fits perfectly. The droning is not that noticeable anymore but just feel bad for my wife on long trips. She want's me to keep it because I like it so much so I was throwing around some options of replacement and since I had a local friend interesting in buying my complete setup (DP + Exhaust) I was looking at going catless with a less droning setup.

I'd still like to do the Catless with either Greddy, ARK or MadDad but now with snow on the ground, no garage anymore and the potential of my local friend backing out. I may stick with this setup through the winter.

We'll see!

Man your build is inspiring. I will be doing my build soon...Well when i get home from this deployment. I have been slowly buying parts out here when i find good enough deals.

I was wondering how the Alcantara is with the leather. I have a 12' STi and i like the look, but with all of the leather i don't know how it will turn out.

Hey man, I got mine done at Synaptec3 in NH. It was an actual white glove service. The guys were incredibly neat and precise, highly recommended!

Probably a little far for Buffalo (Close to 8.5hrs)

Haha, I'm dying to get something going on here. I'll be breaking ground on a new Garage/shop on Monday. My wife had agreed to split the cost of a new shop so I can start working and modding cars again. I hoping to help out local members with their cars while I document write-ups for a new how-to site I'm working on with a couple vendors.

Good things to come but still a slow point with anything new on my car. Running strong as hell though!!
