Default ScoobySport Muffler for a 2001 RS?

RallyPerformance (ScoobySport USA), sells a ScoobySport muffler for the WRX/pre-01 2.5RS. They say that they don't make one for the 2001+ RS. I didn't think there was a difference between the 2000 and 2001 RS exhaust. I've heard that the 2002 RS has a different exhaust than the 2001. Perhaps they meant they don't make one for the 2002+ RS? The stock muffler from a 2002+ WRX will work on a 2001 RS right? So I would assume that a ScoobySport muffler made for the WRX would work on the 2001 RS.

The muffler they list for the 2000 also works for the 2001. The only differences between 2000 and 2001 RSs is in standard options.

they list it that way because the rest of the world got the new age impreza as a 2001 model... so they didn't have the classic in 2001. It will work fine...

That's what I figured. So how does the ScoobySport muffler sound on an RS with no other exhaust mods? I'm hoping it's noticebly louder than stock, but not super loud like those fart cans. And I'm under the assumptions that it's more of a lower pitch bassy tone. Someone explain his/her impressions.

I've heard it and its rather loud. Um ok, its LOUD. People who think its not too loud are the WRX people. Turbo'd is quieter but for some reason its somewhat louder on N/A, but in a good way

Maybe turbo'd cars have more/longer piping which suppresses noise?

it's because the exaust goes from the exhaust manifold to the turbo, then back out the downpipe... that's why they are quieter

The exhaust sound is deep though loud is a relative, I don't think its loud, even in comparison to the stock muffler.

The only ScoobySport I've ever heard on a running car was loud. Not bad loud, but deep loud like a nice-sounding Mustang or Camaro.

I dream of ScoobySport catback.....my friend has it on his RS and he demonstrated it to me this weekend....
we had a meet so cars were parked door to door, 2 alarms went off
it's beautiful, both looks and sound, but too bad they stopped making them for GC8

like everyone says loud is a relative term. but for a while i had just the scoobysport axleback on my 02 rs and at first i thought it was loud because it is the first car i have had with an exhaust so im not used to it. Now that im used to it i would not call the exhaust loud. it is certainly very boombing and bassy at low rpms but at regular cruising and around town driving its not loud at all. Its noticable, and it turns heads but it is far from obnoxious.
i recently added the midpipe (unresonated) and i still dont think it is loud at all, maybe just a little crisper sounding.

the other day at the stonybrook meet, here on long island i let another member drive my car, (this was the first time ive heard it from standing outside the car) and i didnt think my car was loud at all compared to everything else you hear on the road.
you will definately love it!!!! how could you not!!! its the sound of a scooby!!!!

I didn't think they made a ScoobySport for the GDA style RS. Or did you just get it modified or something? I think I'm gonna order my ScoobySport today.

Is this what was available via subaru for the 2000 RS? My car came with some sort of aftermarket exhaust with no markings on it, he said it was a factory optional upgrade. It looks decent and sounds deeper and more boxer-like than stock cars I've heard.

Anyone have a pic? The muffler end is fairly distintive on mine.

No ScoobySport has no product ties with factory options, I understand that SS made a "ScoobySport Edition" for some WRX to sell over selected dealers, but thats another subject.
