Default Exhaust questions, sorry if this sounds redundant but I have searched to no avail.

I have been searching for hours and I have narrowed my up/downpipe search to:

PDE up-pipe because it's the only one that allows use of the heatshield (should I choose maybe TXS and wrap it? I like the cast iron idea, not liking to add too much heat in this area).
Maybe ScoobySport for the downpipe. I'll be retaining the stock muffler for now. Is there another that mates up to the stock system as well as the SS, possibly cheaper?

That's it for now thanks!

The heat shield can be made to fit almost any down pipe. Why choose your downpipe based on the simple fact that it fits the stock heat shield? Why not go with what you think is a good design?

Agreed!

I run my car with NO heatshields and its fine! Seriously when you get into modding your car all the time, having no heatshields is a definite PLUS.

Dont go by heatshields. Just get the one you want.

you can always fabricate new heat shields, shouldn't cost much.

Exactly.

Some people would rather have the heat shields on for protection and redirecting heat.

I personally feel that are unwanted weight. Then again, my WRX isn't used as a daily driver.

Unwanted weight? It's funny because you could remove more weight from your car by craping out the 1/2 lb burger you had for lunch then taking off the downpipe heat shield.
