The Brullen cat-back and turbo-back units will clear the rear-diff protector.

I have a cat back by Stromung which clears the rear differential protector. Call them if you are interested, they don't list it on their site, but they do make one.

Alphabill sells a Prodrive WR Sport axle back, that clears it.

Default 2.5"

Anyone know if the scoobysport will clear the diff protector?
Is this a problem with the design of the exhaust or the piping size? If I get a 2.5" turboback do I have to worry about it hitting the diff protector?

Well lets list the ones that don't clear the diffy protector. I personally am looking at mufflers now and can't decide. I want deep sound, that isn't annoyingly droney. Does a cat-back make that much more of a difference than an axle back? I am looking at turboxs, scoobysport, cobb, and stromung. I know that stromung makes probably one of the best power gainers for the 2.5RS. Which one is the best overall for theWRX? anyone?

speedbuggy67 - A cat-back unit will definately yield more gains vs. an axle back. Coupled with a Unichip, you'd make quite a bit of useable power for the street. Not to mention, by going with a cat-back, you'll decrease spool time and increase throttle response.

GTB guy thanks any personal suggestion on which to get? I heard the scoobysport is nice but too loud. Maybe cobb or Stromung?
