Default Installer in Scranton / Wilkes-Barre, PA (Turbo Back Exhaust)

Are there any reputable installers in the Scranton / Wilkes-Barre area?

I have a 2003 WRX and I need to install a Cobb Turbo Back Exhaust. I'll provide all the parts and gaskets, new bushings, etc.

I'm installing out of necessity, as my muffler and cat have holes in them... So might as well 'upgrade'.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Eric

Keep in mind,

At minimum you will need a Cobb AccessPort to accompany your TBE. Ideally, you'd get a tune to go with the exhaust.

Just bolting on an exhaust without touching the ECU won't make for a very happy car in the long term.

not sure if mark will tune though. you can probably just do that with the accessport after the install. i'd also think about a header, up-pipe, and maybe an intercooler.

egorka... what are you doing july 27?

I ordered the full Cobb stage 2 kit, including Accessport yesterday. Its going to be about 1-1/2 to 2 weeks before the exhaust gets here from what I am told. It's actually the first modification I'm going to have to my 2003 Sonic Yellow WRX (except for a K&N Air Filter and an STI hood scoop).

From what I understand, I probably also need to get a new donut gasket, turbo to downpipe gasket, and I should probably also invest in some new exhaust hangar bushings?

PA-Outback2000- I'm not doing anything in particular on the 27th.

there's a BBQ in nj at paul miller subaru. it is part of the "monthly tri-state drive" group's monthly events. as of now, pushnpounds and i are meeting, either in blooming grove or milford to cruise to the steakhouse, then meeting up with the group there to go to the event.

Why would you need a new donut gasket if you bought a full turboback new? Or did you buy a cat back.. This is something REALLY simple to do. Grab a friend and spend some time on it. It takes me less than 10 minutes to swap an exhaust out.

I didn't know if the turbo back included those gaskets- wouldn't I need at least a turbo to downpipe gasket? Or is that included?

Thanks guys. I appreciate it. I'll let you know once the exhaust arrives, should be a week or two. Apparently the turbo back is back ordered and does not come with turbo to dp gasket or donut gasket. It does come with the mid pipe gasket though.

My accessport is coming early though, so maybe I can play around with that.

Not sure about the caravan though. I'll know better when the time gets closer. Usually I work on the weekends, but I can pretty much make my own hours depending on the workload.

It's not needed if you are just doing a cat back exhaust and retaining the stock down pipe. But it you swap downpipes, most cars will over boost due to the reduced back pressure. So you end up needing a tune or just a stage 2 access port to keep everything in check.

Especially in the northeast. You'll have issues in January when the temps drop.

I believe the 02-03 ECUs are pretty forgiving, but anything 04- needs a tune.

(At least that's what I've been reading.)

I purchased the accessport just to be safe.

Yeah it does make it easier. You have to take th downpipe off to begin with. An uppipe will take an extra 30 mins to an hour. You must not work on your own cars.

If you can do an uppipe in 30 mins to an hour I would be shocked. At MINIMUM its a 3.5 hr job and that's the record. On average it takes 5 hours
