<---really not a fan on forum politics. They are all the same from import to domestic, from 2 wheels to 4 wheels. There is always the newbie search function zings. I only made this thread because I had to post 3 times before I can create a WTB OEM exhaust thread. Don't blame the newb. Blame the TOS.

I really do appreciate the advice on where to start and the threads pointed out to read. Thanks fellas for being the resource that you are.

No one is saying anything about TOS or why you made the thread. I'm commenting on how we see these threads almost daily, and with the same half ass mod attempt. Like I already said, don't take it personally, just research before you buy anything. Our member Uncle Scotty would have said this but in a much more blunt way.

PS if you fill out your profile, then goto your regional chapter I bet you can find one fairly easily, or at least someone that would be able to fix the tuning issue.

I don't necessarily agree with his approach. I don't think many people take kindly to being called stupid. A lot of people just stumble into this forum and I feel that trying to figure out how to navigate through what seem to be endless lists of information irrelevant to your issue can be difficult.

I understand the frustration because newbies are constantly flowing into the website, and moderators are trying their best to keep **** organized. Otherwise it just becomes a cluster**** of unorganized information. But for the most part, I find that a lot of the seasoned/learned members on here are more than happy to point newbies in the right direction without the need to verbally abuse them first.

The job of an Admin or mod isn't an easy one. This is a huge forum too. I commend you guys on having a newb section.

So according to the threads posted the 06/07 has a long DP. This narrows my DP selection to those made for 04/05 models, correct? I'm asking because I found a guy that has an 06 OEM system for sale. I told him I was interested but now may have to cancel on him.

Define "long dp." Aftermarket USED to offer 2 sizes, a "shorty" that had what used to be called a mid pipe bolt up, and one that was just the "regular" length that eliminates what used to be called a mid pipe.

The thread says:

"I have an 06/07 WRX, is the downpipe the same? No. The 06/07 WRX has a unique exhaust in that it's downpipe is both the downpipe and catpipe sections of the "older" exhaust. This means you must use a "long" downpipe to bolt up to the rest of your exhaust system. A full TBE will fit fine, but when replacing just the downpipe, you must use a long downpipe."

So If I have on 04 with an HKS Hi Power and Perrin DP, I cannot use an 06/07 OEM DP to replace the Perrin and have it all bolt up?

You're fine. The earlier ones (02-05iirc) were 2 piece. The 06+ are the same just 1 piece.

So if I replace the DP with an OEM exhaust from on 02-05 do I need two pieces or one to bolt up to the Hi Power?

Is the Hi Power taking care of one section of pipe and the DP taking care of another?

Is there a diagram I can look at?

I found one



can someone use this and explain to me what my brother has and what I need to help him replace?

I guess what I need to know is does his Perrin DP replace both the DP and MP in this diagram or is it just the DP, then an OEM MP and then his cat back exhaust.

This section is also titled "frequently asked questions" because new people don't know how to search and the stock nesic search engine sucks and new people don't know to go to google and search site: nasioc then their question.

NexxWins: Please go to the top of the page and click userCP. Fill out at least your location. People (ok me) tend to get testy when we don't know where you live. I can tell you 8 places near me that are great at tuning Subarus. If you live in Florida, I'm no help but others here live there and can help.

I am really not interested in getting a tune. I just want to know what sections of Pipe to buy to replace this.

It seems that My brother has a cat back and a down pipe. This should mean that he has the OEM mid pipe section still in the car. I just need to find on 04-05 oem down pipe and be done with it. Someone correct me if I am wrong but I believe after looking at this diagram and the pictures of the parts and the descriptions of the different OEM exhausts in the threads posted for me that this is what I need.

Anyone selling an OEM DP from an 04-05?

Actually no one has told me what I need exactly. I deduced it from this jumbled mess of helpful advice, really long threads, and worries/love of Scotty. But don't tell Scotty, cause Scotty doesn't know.

They're calling it a downpipe and a midpipe in that diagram which is a bit misleading. Its really just the DP. The midpipe is what they are calling a rear exhaust pipe. Just buy a goddamn DP and call it a day.

I don't know if the HiPower will bolt up to a stock donut style flange on a stock DP though.

Anyone know the answer to this?

OEM DP's are apparently pretty hard to find. Only found one that would work on EBAY. The Part out Classifieds are pretty sold out! Lots of PM's flying around. No luck yet.

OEM DP's have smaller bolt holes on the flange. Get yourself some stock bolts with the glorious bolt springs that you can see by searching "install cat back wrx sti" on google.com

I have been through this thread and hesitated to comment but it seems like the logical progression of what this guy should do has been lost.

Step 1: buy a stock DP from whatever ****ing year you please. Do it locally and it will be OBVIOUS if it fits or not. If you are worried enough just get one from your year. Go to your local Subaru and pay the premium if it means your car won't have engine issues.

Step 2: install it and call it a day.
