This thread is entitled "best products" for WRX. Unless I'm blind, I missed any mention of EM or suspension. Accessport and 22mm rear sway bar to be added, please

I dig your thread 'bomber, they're always great.

I'll put in another vote for the Stromung. It also wins for the "Most stealth, stock looking exhaust" I pull up to one of my friend's house and he comes out after I've shut the engine off -- "Did you put back on the stock exhaust?" Then I give the ignition a whirl.

anyone used one of these? I wonder how it compares to a bellmouth.

I see how a split bellmouth would reduce "friction" between wastegate exhaust and turbo exhaust, But wouldnt a regular bellmouth open up the exhaust flow more. Too bad they dont make a divorced one of these adapter things.

Default Great post!

I have to agree with many of the opinions... the systems mentioned are very good quality! On some of your "honorable mentions", however, note that some of them aren't fully stainless construction which does make a difference.

Glad to see the ScoobySport mentioned for sound, our owners are pretty fanatical about them - and we agree

I would readily admit that it is a sweet looking system; total stealth. But I gotta point out that when I heard theStromung I was really disappointed. I'll give it credit for having an aggressive, deep sound but there was almost no boxer rumble.. Sorta reminded me of any other tuner car with exhaust, Hyundai or Toyota

BTW, I'd also recommend ScoobyMods for beginning DIYers - but this is a great start!

Maybe you could add in catalitic converters, like the bolt on replacements.
