Default Stromung dual-tip

I just installed my Stromung dual-tip midpipe and Borla Gen3 headers and woohoo does it make a difference. I went to my girlfriend’s house too pick here up and she got in the car and I started it and she was said I thought that was a mustang that just went by. Nope little old me in my Impreza. I love the deep throaty sound gets constant looks from everybody who hear’s it. Its really not too annoying cruising on the highway but I have some dynamat layed down in the back so that may take away from the rumble. Kronkiler and bugbomb installed them in about 1.5 hours in there drive way (I really appreciate it) and fitting didn’t seem go much of and issue. Highly recommended if you don’t want the ricey sound and they looks. Wish my random technologies cat were here in time though. Oh well new project for next weekend I guess.

Default Hmmmm

What does the random technologies cat cost? Where do you get it?

I wonder if this combination from engine to tail is a bolt -on for 2002 RS2.5?

The page doesn't have 822504 and if you hit next, you definately don't get it. I'll try a search.

I too just put on my Stromung dual tip. It's great. I love the way the dual tips fill up the cut out on the bumper. E-mail me if you want to hear a sound clip.

I hope you guys got the stainless exhausts. I didn't and now its completely fugged. All corroded and theres a crack in the part right between the tips (less than a year!). I called where I got it and they said they know about this problem which is why they don't carry it anymore. I lose again!

Gordon, Glad you like the setup. Thanks for buying from me!

I like the Stromung combined with Borla Headers much better than the Borla catback. And, yes, he did get the stainless, which ships a lot quicker than the mild steel anyways.

I'd be happy to help anyone else considering this combination of parts, which I sell off my site.

Crap!! I got the mild steel Stromung. Yes...I should kick myself for not getting the SS...but I was low on cash. Is there anything I can do to prevent it from rusting??!! Maybe if I sprayed it with WD-40 every morning before school?

The WD-40 trick might work. Or call your GF and ask her to give up the vaseline

*rise from the dead*

Does anyone else have any reviews of this exhaust on the 2002-03 wrx?

I'm highly considering this for my sedan. I want a clean rumbly sound without being too loud. Sound quality is important. I like the prodrive, just I'd rather go dual tip stock look.

If anyone has sound clips, that would be a mega-bonus, as I can't seem to find any.

Thanks.

Scott at Stromung said they haven't made a mild steel exhaust in over a year. They've gone with stainless steel now.

Thumbs up

I've had my dual-tip Stromung axleback for almost a year now. It looks great and is the perfect muffler for the practical person. The sound is fabulous - the perfect mixture of sedateness and excitement. Quiet when you want it to be, yet rumbly when you get on it. Plus, the quality of the stainless muffler is quite good. I purchased my axleback second-hand, so it is probably almost two years old, yet it looks like new after a car wash. Great product.

ive had my stromung catback 2.5" dual tip for about 3 months now and i can honestly say that i dont think there is another catback out there with the same awesome combination of quality, fit, look, sound, and price. although id like to try the scoobysport.... anyway....

it looks stock, but slightly bigger and its stainless. its tucked right up against the bumper, but not too high and out. perfect fit. better fit than the stock exhaust. and the sound, geez! i had an sti guy tell me how much he loved the way my car sounded! i was like, dude your car sounds the best w t f you talking about. and thats all ive done engine-wise. the sound is unmatched! kinda burbles at low rpm and does not drone on the highway. with the windows down you could really hear it, but with the windows up you barely notice, its just a slight rumble. not even close to being *loud*.

makes me want to get the 3" downpipe with div wg.

thanks to AEROSIM RESEARCH in Costa Mesa for hooking me up. they had a Stromung group buy, i missed it but i dont know if its still going on. call kym.

YinUCSD,

Are you running OEM uppipe and down pipe? This really peaks my interest in the Stromung system. I am thinking of going Stromung TBE with the new Stromung DP. Thank for any more information.

JC
