When you are beside a civic and can hear the Vtec kick in full bore, then look down and notice your at like half boost and accelerating just as fast.

Also, when guy driving said civic tries to talk to you at the stoplight and you cant hear him over your exhaust.

Sorry, probably been said before but I had this happen yesterday.

... when you promise yourself that you're NOT going to launch your car like an idiot and the first time that you overhear kids on the corner saying 'man, I love that car', you slip the clutch at 4500rpm and take off like you're still 18.

I confess to nothing.

Perrin DP and a Blitz NUR-spec CBE.

Its the loudest wrx exhaust I've heard next to EWG's and rally cars. A little obnoxious but I got used to it. Boxer rumble is so nice.

Here's what it sounds like.

Idk if anyone cares.

Not my video BTW.

Nice. Well if you want loud this is a decent one. It drones on the highway and at first it annoyed the hell out of me but like I said I got used to it.

I've been told by a few other subie owners that mine is the loudest they have heard next to straight pipes.

Is your DP catted or catless?

I'm thinking come tomorrow I might have you beat. Having an Agency-Power CBE exhaust w/out mufflers (mid pipe resonator) installed tomorrow. I'll have to compare and contrast.

Lol post up a video, I'd like to see the setup.

Mine is basically a straight pipe. It's a catless DP, and the blitz kit is 3" all the way back IIRC. There isn't anything inside the muffler, its just a flow through.

Significant reduction in power delivery at lower RPMs.

Meaning it's a lot easier to keep yourself from speeding or revving higher.

If that's what you were questioning.



Or you were poking fun, saying that I only drive in [i]. And then I would
