One of the universal mufflers that has the straight through (quiet) technology. It might be louder than stock, but not by much, and it'll perform a lot better. OEM is horrible for performance, it has all these baffles and twists and turns.

I've been contemplating this for a while. I think purchasing a universal Magnaflow muffler and having a shop weld on as straight a pipe as possible to it would work well, no?

Magnaflow is supposed to be the best performance universal muffler out there. At least in the lower price bracket. Flowmaster is still on the baffle system, and not as efficient.

sorry to bring this back up .. but im wondering how long of a tip is needed to clear the bumper from the melting issues ive heard about. Im looking at http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/s...ne=main&id=765 right now but im unsure if its gonna clear or not for my wagon.. or will it be too tucked away underneath?

Tip probably needs to be about 9" long...measure it out on your wagon.

Well crap! I dont think even the most aftermarket cat back systems have a muffler with that kind of tip length! Im just wondering what others look like or work.... like stromung, brullen, obx, cobb, SPT, or prodrive, etc... Ive seen a magnaflow on a legacy sedan, and its tip length is like 7". Thats on "Plays_With_toys" green wagon. Otherwise i can go with a round muffler and do an angle out the back like "that one legacy" guy has on his white legacy wagon.

Though it comes down to what i can afford and such too, but since i just bought a borla header, stromung cat delete pipe, and stromung mid pipe, id like to have something nice in the back to support what ive put into it already.

Just throwing out some ideas...

You could get a sedan tip welded on by extending the piping between the tip and muffler, wouldn't be noticable unless you got under the car, and would be the right length.

Or you could have a nice looking 2.25" pipe knife cut (like stock) and welded on and it would make a fine tip.

FYI- knife cut refers to the tip style, not how it is cut or anything...

If you're not afraid of a little bit of fabrication work you could do some work on the bumper with some stainless steal or mesh to help prevent scorching or burning of your bumper. I've seen it on a WRX wagon and it looks pretty sweet - but it also looks like something that has to fit the style of the car too.

Just some thoughts
