Here is my best shot of the tube.

Let me know what you guys think....



You see, my Cobb up=pipe was a one peace tube all the way trhough, that was it, the stcok one has the pipe but it also has the mash looking filter around one end of the pipe and if you look at the exterior of the stcok up-pipe you can see the end i am talking about is a bit fater the the rest, i always thought it was because of the filter, still think it is but now i have my questions check it out.



Also, the stock up-pipe has an internal brake before it get to the turbo (the turbo end has a bit bigger diameter, it is weird. (first pictures)

Let me know what you guys think.

Please note:

uppipe on the left is an STi/06 WRX Catless uppipe (yours)

on the right we have a pre 06 catted uppipe (not yours)



I'm sorry to say, dear sir, you wasted your money.

If your uppipe had a cat in it, it would lookalikeadis

Balex,

That up-pipe does not have a catalytic converter. If it was a cat, there would be a honeycomb screen covering the pipe and inside of that screen would be a ceramic looking material. That wire mesh is probably there for insulation (think header wrap). Also, if there was a cat there, there would be a bung for an O2 sensor.

Edit: Scooby24 made his post while I was still typing mine.

a bit premature to say he wasted his money, don't you think?

look at the interior of that catless pipe.

look at the nice graceful bend of that cobb pipe.

now, i've been one of the biggest proponents of gutted or oem up pipes for a long time, but one thing they are not is smooth on the inside and gracefully curved.

after taking hours and hours of painstaking care porting and polishing my oem headers, i am looking at my (currently gutted stocker) up pipe next.

Defenetly agree with you, do not think i wasted my my at all, in additiong to the Cobb bend and smothness, Cobbs up=pipe does not have the brake right before the turbo inlet like the stock one does, making the air flow even smootherererrrrrrrr.

Here is one more reason to get a Cobb UP-pipe: It will last you for ever.

But sorry, i guess i was wrong about it being catted.

Well of course it's his money but I'm not all about spending 3 hours, bloodying up my knuckles, and spending 235 bucks to get 100 rpm faster spool and 2 hp.

But hay, if you wanna go for it, by all means.

I dont know about other WRX models but it only took me 1.5 hours to install on my 06 car, and that is working completely alone. did not need to take off the turbo, intercooler or to jack the engine up, all i had to take off was my APS short downpipe and to lose the headers just little bit.

here's what i would have done...

that $300 should have went to a used vf39.
im sure you are well off financially...
so another $300-350 for a used sti tmic...
and tada +100hp with cobb's vf39 map
instead of being happy with 100rpm faster spool...

only takes an hour to install too if you know what to do

and i doubt you're going to leave your car at stage 2

well i got the vf39 last tuesday.
my butt dyno tells me that the stage 2 i had was a joke.
because it got fairly weak at the higher rpm's.

not now of course.

i wanted to get it timed but the nearest track (fontana speedway) is closed until late may. and i dont know of any other tracks.

how many times have you launched your car at 5000-5300k?
i never launched that high before... usually around 4000-4500k cause im scared for the tranny...

you'll love your 18G powered 06... i think it's vf39 power but no lag and a bit more top end.

I launch my car everytime at around 5k, i am pretty sure our trany can handle the mare 230whp and 270 torque that stage 2 gives. Please, let me know if i am wrong though.

What do you guys think of the EVO316G turbo? what would you get, the FP18g or EVO316G?

18g >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> vf39

an 18g can lay down 50 more hp than a vf39. a little more than a "bit"
