Default A-spec Up-pipe

A-spec Up-pipe purchased from www.thewrxstore.com

My pipe that was sent to me had 3/8" thick flanges instead of 1/2" thick flanges. (false advertizing)
It was also tapped for 3/8" studs instead of the 10mm studs that are found in the stock up-pipe. So, you have to go out and buy all new studs and nuts.
There are no clearance issues and fitment is great once you have the right hardware but a pain to find out that you cant use the factory studs.
I mean, common, now I have a hybrid WRX with standard studs and nuts for the up-pipe.

Default up-pipe

any up-pipe will run good with any exhaust as the up-pipe is before the turbo and will improve flow. Really, if you plan on sticking with the stock turbo, an up-pipe like the turboxs unit would probably work the best because it retains the closer to stock pipe diameter but if you plan on upping the turbo then a larger uppipe diameter may result in even more power.
