Question Down pipe for Legacy Turbo!

Any more info for the turbo Down pipe??
I really think the down pipe could help our car run faster and smoother.
2 weeks ago my down pipes gasket was broken it made the connection from the down pipe to the Cat. lost contact. But the sound was lound and sweet(^v^) I also notice the car ran smooth and felt more powerful then before!! I was plan to not fix it but its too lound and my girlfriend said she can't hear any music at all, so I take it to dealer and fix it. After I bring it back, I feel their are huge different. So right now, I think the down pipe is the first mod that could make my car run fast and powerful!

Ben, you are right on about the down pipe. I have yet to hear of a WRX owner sorry he fit a downpipe as just about anyone who ever did has nothing but good things to say about them and our downpipes are almost identical to the WRX ones.

If you could hold tight for RalliSpec's just a bit longer, I think you will be pleased. I've seen their work and it's nothing short of first class. I've been trying to get in touch with them via e-mail but with their new products in the works for the Impreza guys, I could imagine they up to their necks with e-mails and requests( what can you do, unfortunetly there are more guys with RSs then Turbo Legacys). I'll keep at them though and give you a full report when it's on( hopefully soon).

Another option is to buy one overseas but most I've seen are quite a few hundred bucks and untill it gets to your house, shipping will probably push the price up quite a bit more. Or you can find a decent exhaust shop like Miller did and go that route but I'm going to hold out for RalliSpec's downpipe. I think it will be worth the wait.

Shik, thanks for your fast reply. I'm not in hurry for the down pipe yet, but I do really think its the great mod. to our car!!!!
Other thing, Did you know anyone who wants a 97-99 WRX intercooler, as I said before, I brough it from HK and it doesn't fits on our car,I'm just got the e-mail back from MRT and they just ask me to buy there used intercooler, I do remember you have your intercooler from them, hows it look? good condition and how much it cost with the ship and handle?
I would like to use the 97-99 intercooler because its little bit bigger but unforturnitly it doesn't fit, I may sell it, if you know who wants this intercooler just give my e-mail address to them....thanks!
Here is the e-mail address: b.lam@usa.net
I do have the Apex-i Super AVC-R but I don't think I will install until I have an intercooler sits onto the engine, I don't want my engine blow!!!
Thanks for your info and help!!
Enjoy Your Subaru

I ran open dp for a week while i was waiting for my exhaust to be made, man did it sound sweet! Just too loud, attracted too much attention I got pulled over for it but got off with a warning.

Why would you bump a 6 year old thread for this?
