Default Scoobysport sound on an RS

I bought an '05 2.5rs about a year ago and am now very dissapointed to find out how hard it is to find aftermarket exhausts for it. I heard a couple sound clips of the Scoobysport for the WRX and I can't get over the sound...
So here is my question: has anyone modified a Scoobysport exhaust to fit onto a modern RS or found another exhaust that gets that same deep, throaty sound?

Well, I guess I should say in comparison to wrx. I have found a few, but most places that I have seen only have stuff for wrx.

problem is the only good scoobysport for the old ones which were H&S, and no longer in production and only for the wrx. You would need a custome midpipe in order to make it work

and to sounds its all in persepctive

It won't have the pulse like the WRX, but it'll be somewhat deep. The borla headers will bring out the WRX-like pulse.

here's a custom header (unequal length) I built. Don't mind the doughnut....but yea unequal length will give you the pulse like a WRX. The 2.5RS headers are just a tad shorter on one runner, but almost equal.

EDIT: I'm going to try to get a just an exhaust clip tomorrow night.

When the previous owner of my engine had it in is car, I believe he had a scoobysport can. It sounded sweet. It almost looked like a flowmaster but a little more rounded. I wonder what a plain old flowmaster would sound like on the end? I have the 2.5 now and I need to get rid of my stock 1.8 rear section. Hmm...

Actually that is my '99 L wagon 2.2L. When the exhaust system heats up, it sounds really mean! No flaps, just deep burble and rumble.

I see, so is that midpipe something you fabricated yourself? Had a shop do it? Or was it purchased?

what do you think!
is your exhaust resonated or without resonator? I heard alot of bad things about borla headers (rust and cracks)... Did those ever happened to your header?

Cracking was a problem with the earlier versions of the headers, but if you're the original owner with your receipt their "million mile waranty" will take care of it.

I've got a very similiar setup, sounds awesome although kinda loud

Unres = unresonated. My midpipe was custom made by a shop. cost me about 80 bucks.

The scoobysport axleback is not a direct bolt on as the flange is at the wrong angle. The 2 options are, have a midpipe fabricated with the flange at the correct angle. or cut off the end of the axleback and rotate the flange.

Regarding my borlas i have the newest generation and yes they did crack on me. Directly on one of the merges. Borla was very good about replacing them for me. I called them up, they advised me to claim the warrenty through the shop where i purchased them. The shop verified the crack, took pictures, borla mailed the new headers right away. New headers arrived, were installed (i had to pay for the install, borla wouldnt cover it), and the cracked headers were shipped back to borla.

Borla was very understanding as i asked for permission to weld the cracked headers for a race that weekend. so once the shop verified that the headers were cracked, i had them welded while i waited for the new set.

If it cracks again i will just have it welded shut rather than go through the warranty because i dont want to pay for the install again!

I am not having any rusting problems

FYI borla headers give VERY little power gains. But they do give a sweet sound ehh!

What does a glasspack sound like on an RS? Is it taboo to put one on?

Thanks for all the information guys, it has been really helpful. I think I am gonna get a Scoobysport axel back (spendy) and then after I save a little more up, probably get some borla headers. Thanks again.

I have a glass pack in mine, and that's the only muffler that I have, after the glass pack it's just a Mangflow 22" tip (as you would see on pickup trucks).

It helps resonate the flapping cracking sounds. Before I put on the glasspack, it sounded like a HOT ROD! Flapping cracking! Kind of a mean sound to it with rumble. hehehe
