Thumbs down Nope

Not according to the Subaru part numbers:

44305FA100 - 1.8L & 2.2L 7/96- & 2500 -6/98
44300FA110 - 2.5L 7/98-

Basically, it looks like the RS had a different muffler MY99+.

Someone who's actually compared them side-by-side might chime in and descibe what's different.

The tip.

The canister between all RS's look all the same - the generic Subaru exhaust. Although the tip of the MY98RS is more of a "small ID" with an oval cover, where as the MY99-MY01 has a flaired tip.

LaterZ!
