Post Legacy vs Outback exhaust compatibility

I'm planning to do the Intake/Headers/Stromung mod very soon. But, my question is this. I have an OB Wagon, not a regular Legacy. Are these parts interchangable? No one lists them separately, but they don't list suspension separately, either, which is not compatible.

Anyone know if there are any issues?

Oh, my other question was, what's the recommended cat-muffler pipe size to go with the headers? 2.25" or 2.5"? Do you lose too much low-end torque w/ 2.5?

thanks

They're ignoring you.
Honestly I don't know the answer, but I can wager a pretty safe bet about the exhaust. Since the OB is raised up in the suspension, the exhaust and all of it's workings should stay in the same place. There's no reason for different parts. If it went underneath the rear axle, that would be a different story.

Best intermediate pipe size to preserve low-end torque is 2.25". 2.5" give good top-end power at the expense of low-end.

A better place to ask this is in the Legacy forum, but luckily for you a Legacy GT wagon owner is in the house. They're the same car, so no problems with the parts and whatnot.

Subarus are great for that parts interchangeability stuff, and they're easy to work on too, I have discovered. I should add that your raised suspension negates any of the cool suspension bits, as far as I know. You Outbackers seem to be neglected.

And you'll love that Stromung. I was in the car wash this evening, and the hiker started my car. Everybody looked, and a guy next to me with a Mercedes said "Your car sounds great!"

Be sure to start thinking about suspension work, so that you have the handling to go with that added power. There might be some stuff for you to look into. Contact somebody that does a lot of Legacy stuff, like Teague's.
