Default Has anyone tried the 2011+ wrx forcewerkz exhaust?

Like the title says, has anyone tried the forcewerkz quad tip catback exhaust and is it any good? http://www.importimageracing.com/for...hatchback.html

Interested as well, that's a fair amount cheaper than the invidia.

Definitely cheaper. But this is the first I've heard of it. I am trying to find a decent affordable exhaust as well.

Interesting design. I've never heard of them. It appears that will will probably be on the louder side. No in-line resonator and a relatively small muffler. My guess is on par with the noise levels of the MagnaFlow and unresonated CNT.

$600 doesn't seem all that cheap to me. Most of the ones I've seen even name brands are 400-800. generics ebay style ones are 200-400

I was about to order the Invidia Q300 and then I saw the Forcewerkz. I ordered the Forcewerkz so I will let you know how it is.

I couldn't find any information or reviews on it so I took a chance and will be the guinea pig on this one

Definitely post up pics, thoughts, and a video if you can. You will be the first one to get it that I'm aware of. I'm sure people will be interested in your thoughts. Also check out the 2011 exhaust compilation in the interior/exterior section.

Will do, I am hoping Sandy doesn't slow down the shipping though.

The exhaust came in today.

It could have been packaged a little better, they only put foam on one side of the box and one of the tips is bent a little bit but I'm not too worried about it.

All the welds looks pretty good and I don't see any signs of being "cheap."

My car is at the dealer now until Tuesday or Wednesday so I will update next week with fitment and sound.

Here are some pictures.

I think Import Image just miss labeled it. If you google search Forcewerkz, their website says "fiberglass and carbon fiber fabricator / manufacture"

Did the install today, unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take any pictures or videos as the sun had gone down right when I finished.

The drivers side sits a tiny bit lower than the passenger side as far as fit up. The install went smoothly though and everything bolted right up.

Sound wise, in my opinion, is perfect. It's not really loud but not too quiet either. In the middle I'd say. There is absolutely zero drone - that's right, ZERO. Now I do have that spray on bed liner type coating on the undercarriage so that might have something to do with it.

Overall I think it's a great exhaust for the price, if any of you are thinking about it I say go for it unless you just have to have that name brand exhaust.

Pics on the car? Looking for a decent, not too loud exhaust but don't want to spend a grand.

Sorry for the delay I am in the middle of leaving one job and starting another and moving from VA to CT. Been busy trying to finish some work stuff up before I leave and packing up all my ****. The sun going down at 5 isn't helping. Next week I will be in CT and I'll take pictures and videos - if I can find my camera at that point. God I hate moving.

How is the exhaust flow between the left and right? Does it seem balanced?

Hope the move went well. Find that camera yet??

I'm more interested now as my car was rear ended on the way to work yesterday and bent the crap out of the stock exhaust. I was planning on the TurboXS catback, but I like the single wall tips of this catback better. Would love to see a pic on the car and maybe a short driving around vid to hear the tone.

Thanks dude.
