Impreza WRX Turbo XS 3" Catted Turbo Back Quad Tip Exhaust 2012 Sedan

I have a 2012 WRX sedan and purchased my exhaust from a vendor off here for $1297 shipped and it came with all the parts except it didn't come with the O2 sensor plug required due to I only have 1 O2 sensor. It was about $6 on ebay or any other website for the plug. My buddy bought the same one for his '13 sedan and had the same issue. Not sure if it is not supposed to come with it or what. Not really a bid deal. Now to the exhaust its self. It is absolutely beautiful. The huge bell mouth compared to the restrictive stock down pipe and the huge quad 4" blued tips look so mean. I immediately noticed the turbo spooling up faster and at lower rpms not to mention the amazing roar at WOT. The car is much more responsive with this exhaust and love the way it sounds. For the money I don't think you can beat the Turbo XS TBE. I recommend a Cobb AccessPort so you can get the full potential from a Stage 2 tune. If you want a sound clip of my car with this exhaust and a Tubro XS RFL BOV send me a message. Enjoy.

I'd like to hear this setup - it's the newer GT quad exhaust from what you described, correct? Catted or non DP?

Any update on this? I'm getting an exhaust soon and it's either this or the Q300.

I found this video and am still looking for the one with the exhaust added. Sorry about the wait, work has been crazy but I should have it up by the end of today if I can find it.

The drone is definitely tolerable. On the highway doing 80 it's kind of loud but unless you travel several hours straight it isn't bad. And I love the sound so I enjoy the drone plus you can hear the turbo spooling at lower rpms. I have no complaints on this exhaust. My buddy with a '13 WRX heard mine and bought it too.

I have a 13 sedan with this Turbo Xs TBE and it is absolutely perfect. Only complaint is that on a hard launch or whenever the Tranny moves a decent amount, the pipe knocks the transmission. This is after adjustments to get more clearance, but I will remedy with an aftermarket trans mount. WOT with this system is amazing.
