I appear to have a leak in the can on my RS-R GT2 TBE exhaust on my 06 WRX. Searching around online to find a replacement and can't find ANYTHING online? What happened and anyone know where I can source RS-R equipment in the states? Their website is not accessible?

Quick question for you guys.

How much would an exhaust manifold+ cat-less up pipe effect the overall volume of the exhaust?

I am trying to figure out what I want to do for an exhaust set up that will be a reasonable volume and still be a good performer. For a TBE I was planning on the invidia g200/q300 (still undecided) with a v2 bellmouth down-pipe all cat-less. I also wan't to get rid of the cat in the up-pipe so I was hoping to be able just replace everything with a tomei uel exhaust manifold without raising the volume too much lol.

Oh and Minnesota doesn't have any emissions laws so I'm good there. Idk exactly how friendly the police are though so the stealthier the better.

Apexi ws2 with the muffler itself painted black with the muffler face and tip still polished. It was like that when I received it via trade but I just polished the **** out of it.

Going catless all the way will be loud. But Right now I have catless upipe to catless downpipe to g200 and its not too loud but thats coming from me previously using a blitz nur spec r which was really loud but amazing sounding. You'd be pleased with the g200, also its huge tip just to remind you, but looks great with burnt tip and sounds good. I am pleased with it. Also you might check out going catless and using a greddy spectrum elite exhaust. If I had to switch right now I'd go back to blitz but to much of a cop attention getter even not getting on it.

I had a catless tbe in my 07, 05, & 02. The loudness isn't bad as long as you have a good muffler. I had stromung exhaust in all of them.

Yea I know cat-less will be louder but those catted down pipes are soo darn expensive. If I could combine the tip of the q300 and the muffler of the g200 I would be extremely happy .

I feel like I would be fine with a cat-less TBE. The deciding factor would be how much louder Tomei's UEL header+up pipe is.

By no means am I expecting it to be as quiet as stock but I also don't want a lot of drone or crazy ridiculous noise.

Headers won't make an incredible difference in exhaust note, as the exhaust flow has to pass through the turbo first. The sound is generated after the turbo, primarily. So I wouldn't worry about that too much.

As for drone, most cat-back manufacturers have designed a sharp-ish bend at the end of the pipe just prior to muffler itself. It's purpose in that location is to interrupt the sound waves that create drone.

This was most evidenced for me when I changed my Bozz Speed titanium pipe for a Perrin twin tip pipe. Even though I went from catted to catless, the drone all but disappeared when I installed the Perrin because of the bend at the back. From catted to catless you'll notice more popping and a hollow sound. If you're still running unequal length headers your cold starts will likely sound like a high displacement big block lol.

If I still had my bugeye I could only dream of it looking this good. Very nice setup.

Awesome! Now I just have to decide if I want the burnt tip can G200 or the stockish looking Q300. Its too bad I don't know anybody around me with either. I guess I'm leaning more towards the Q300 though because it looks a lot cleaner and not as canish.

The Q300 was recommended to me by my tuner shop, they said idle and around town is very neutral sounding but opens up when you step on it. Personally I don't like the look of the neck-down at the tip, but that's just me.

Either one I'm sure you'll enjoy, plus if you can find the sweet spot in your throttle when you go catless you can make it pop and rumble and grumble like nobody's business, lots of fun

Heres a quick shot of mine:



Sound Clip my friend shot:

The idea behind it was to tuck the exhaust up as far as possible under the car. I started with the cheapest Ebay catback I could find, and cut it up and made it fit as I wanted. For mufflers, it uses the the resonator that was in the catback, and I added a DynoMax bullet to the end.

I am in the process of switching to a EL header now. I will post up a new sound clip when that is done.
