Hi there,

Looking into a new exhaust for my 2.5i, any suggestions?
Has anyone done straight pipe from the cat? If you have was the drone too much?

Thanks!

I too have been looking into this as well. What I've learned Is that the resonator is actually a pretty important piece. Main contributer to proper back pressure. However if the sound is what your after get rid of it but I haven't seen document data to support what I'm saying. Hi flow Exhuast are better suited for our turbocharged brethren. I myself am looking for a OEM wrx or sti take off usually about 200 in Canada here. With the resonator. I'm not looking to draw attention to my wagon lol. My OEM muffler has the the whistle now so from what I've heard/read that means the time has come to replace it.

I went with a cheap catback to replace an ES that was horribly rusted. Tried a Tsudo N1 on MY08 2.5i. Learned my lesson. Drone isn't bad, and it came with a silencer - good for suburbia. Nice sound, but that's about all.

The fit - the main concern... horrendous. Rattles chaotically when accelerating or when the A/C is on or when the wind blows. Two exhaust shops after my buddy and I put it on. Flush/on top of frame, rear swaybar etc. Tip hits and has melted portion of bumper. Only fix is to drop about 1.5 inches. And then it would be on the ground.

I'll be switching it out shortly. Save yourself a headache, don't listen to the small crowd that says theirs fits/works fine. My advice, if you're on a budget, give it a few months, put some $ back and don't go cheap.

I have a 2011 2.5i hatchback and was looking into maybe deleting just the Muffler. I am new to all this stuff and have little idea of how to do this and where to start. Any help would be appreciated.
