Default Looking for a custom muffler delete

Alright I'll just be truthful to you all, if you don't like cheap mods, stop here! I took off the muffler on my WRX hatch and I love the exhaust note, despite the terrible appearance of the bare exhaust flange hanging there. Even more ghetto yet, I zip-tied the pipe to the bushings/rubber mounting things in attempt to prevent a freak occurrence that might damage the exhaust pipe. Believe me, any digs on me that you might have by now, I've already said to myself.

So, my question is this: Provided I saved the gasket, what can I expect to pay for a 3" tip coming off a turndown pipe with a matching flange? If I could somehow throw in a Y-shaped pipe for dual or quad tips, that would sweet but a single is basically what I'm looking for.

It'll probably be cheaper to go to a local exhaust shop that does custom work and ask them.
Have fun with the police, isn't Kalifornistan the WORST place to mod your car?

I emailed a local muffler shop, but I was hoping to get an answer if this is even possible. And if you're referring to noise, it's not that super loud, and it still has a proper full exhaust that passes Cali smog, so I imagine there's no harm.

Cost is going to be determined by whomever does the work. I could tell you 20 bucks for out here on the East Coast, while in CA it'll cost you $100 just because that state sucks.

if you remove your cat it will get much louder.

try getting a high flow cat. it will get louder and still have somewhat a lower tone.
doing all this properly isnt that expensive at a proper muffler shop. it will look great and same you from other issues along the way.

i cant imagine that a car with no muffler will be quiet enough for california streets.

I don't know what the stock exhaust looks like on his car.

Yes, it's literally just removing the muffler and welding a tip to the flange on the pipe. I think I found a place that will do it tomorrow, I'll follow with a video of how it turned out.

So is there a resonator/muffler in the mid pipe?

If it's just straight pipes you're going to get a lot of attention from the police and neighbors.

Easy Tiger! Who wouldn't want live in a place where if you make less than 70k a year you're under the poverty line lol!

OP go down to an exhaust shop. No one here can give you quotes on work they don't do. I can't imagine it coming out to be too much though.

P.S. The east coast sucks eggs

Yes, resonator and cat are still on, just doing a muffler delete.

Found a Subaru mech in Oceanside. $80 including the tip, it involves some welding as well. I'll show it once its done.

Have a full custom stainless steel pipe fabricated from the downpipe doughnut gasket, with as few bends as possible, to a small OEM looking stainless steel muffler.

By doing this, you will have little obstruction regarding flow and the muffler, will cut some of the excess noise while when viewed from the rear, looks stock.
