Possibly. I'm figuring out what to add to an axle back to make it a cat back. There is more to it than just the muffler piece

On the 98-01 there is a "midpipe" that you can buy. I would suspect that the MY02+ has one also.

Something a bit wider than my stock, right? I think the Stromung is a 2.5 pipe, and stock is what, 2.25?

I've got the Stromung downpipe back 2.5" it sounds perfect and a noticable difference in performance (HP). Yasin I think it's time for you to start buying things!

I agree, Saggio. I picked up wheels yesterday, and am moving onto suspension/exhaust. Brakes, then engine work.

Oh, and taking out the scrape I put in my "trunk"... ah well.

I so agree.

Do you have a WRX or RS? Catback sizes vary depending on whether you're turbo or not. 2.25 is most likely best for NA and 3.0 is usually best for turbo.
