Scoobysport and TXS DPs are not the same. The Scooby starts with a nice bellmouth design and tapers to 2.5" and will easily replace the stock downpipe. The TXS starts with a wide bellmouth also, but the diameter of the pipe remains about 4" for most of the length of the pipe (while the ScoobySport seems to taper much sooner).

The TXS also will not work as a direct replacment for the stock DP. You'd need to get an additional pipe or two from them. I don't remember if it's just longer than the stock DP, or if it's just because it tapers to 3" (stock is ~2.5"). But I'm going with the scoobySport because it seems to be a better match for the rest of teh stock components, and I want to leave the last CAT in place (which i don't think the TXS will allow for).

I am also just replacing the Upipe and downpipe. If I were going to do a bigger turbo and 3" pipes the rest of teh way out, i might opt for the TurboXS, but I'm not going that crazy with the WRX.
