I guess I f$cked up because I already bought the COBB lol... I had the COBB cat back (came on my car) and I like the sound of it... I don't like something so loud that I can't hear the hottie in my car whining in my ear .... so I just figured from a fit and performance point of view (they are prob. designed to work with each other), I would stick with COBB...

However, while we're on the subject... which brands are coated and a fraction of the COBB price?

Will warmer gas be a detriment? I would think that Subaru would design the gas tank to withstand heat from the exhaust in the event crazy mofo's like us nasioc guys remove the heat shield for the sake of saving 1-2 lbs...
