Likes: Definitely sounded more aggressive.
Dislikes: Small decrease in fuel economy (possibly related to more spirited driving)

Other Comments: After three months with both installed, I ended up going back to stock when my new Curt Hitch would not work with the exhaust. CAI and exhaust both available for sale if anyone is interested.

Tsudo Catback exhaust system (Great exhaust for the money, was easily able to be installed)

4-2-1 Typically amazon/eBay UEL Headers (I donīt recommend installing it by your self, I tried and basically had to drive my car to an exhaust shop 5 miles away from me without any headers (Please pray for me)).

Do want to eventually put a CAI, but for the moment, my car is not driveable

Does anyone know if Intakes from 09-12 outbacks are any different from 08-11 Imprezas? Any connections different?

Aren't they both EJ253?

I have seen intakes available for 09-12 2.5i Outbacks. wondering if they will fit in my Impreza.

I have an hps intake for a 2010 legacy or Outback it fits great even the heat shield fit I did have to mod the bracket a little just by relocating it not hard at all I then ran my vacuum hoses to a catch can then to the intake

This is exactly what I was looking for. Much appreciated!

edit: How does the Intake work for you?, I was considering a Takeda or HPS intake for Outback/ Legacy. Any CELs? Power difference?

I donít know much about the takeda one but hps has been awesome not sure how much power gains but it sounds a bit nicer and adds a good look to the engine

2007/Subaru(of course)/Impreza SE/EJ25 SOHC/5 speed Manual
CAI type and Cost: non (just took out the silencer from the air box)
Exhaust type/size Cost: stock
Place of Purchase Good ol' ebay
CAI: non
Header: stock 04" wrx headers (slightly modified)

Likes: No power gains what-so-ever just sounds sweet
Dislikes: the cheapie obx exhaust had to hanger (suprise suprise)

Other Comments: Had to cut the flange leading to what would be an uppipe and rotate it slighty so it would match up to the stock exhaust. I also had to cut off the two bolt flange and make three bolt flange and weld it on so everything would work and seal up properly. i just traced out an old stock header gasket to make my flange and then got a local welder to cut it out for me.
its been almost a year and no leaks yet. it did get louder after a few weeks of driving.


Here i made a crap video of it. You can kind of here it.

Personally, I dont believe a CAI makes any difference other than sound. Stock air box brings in plenty of air.
Ran a Injen for bit, no noticeable differences, personally put stock piping back in.

Borla replica uel headers (not ideal for performance but love the rumble)

Single High Flow Cat (extended rear 02 to read correctly)

2.5in N1 Style custom Cat Back.


With it being NA, there no huge increases, but could definitely tell a difference in torque from stops. Throttle feels much more responsive. On the highway can feel a difference in 5th, above 70mph feels like it builds speed a little quicker.

I am looking to upgrade my exhaust and am considering also upgrading the catalytic converters. I'm on a tight budget and thinking about the spec-d 3in catback however i know its lacking when it comes to quality... im open to all suggestions/tips also id love uel headers but the only ones i think i can afford are the garbage ebay ones that will crack in less than 6 months
I'm trying to keep whatever i end up doing under 500 for now at least may just end up with a catback and have to wait to do other stuff

I have a 95 LX with the EJ22 and a 4ATE - I'm considering going junkyard-warrior overkill for my exhaust. The car is structurally sound chassis-wise, but the rear half of the body... well, the paint is honestly holding places together. :P So I'm not really beholden to making anything pretty for exhaust, but I do want to upgrade it with an end goal of one day putting about 8-10psi to it. To that end, I'm gonna fab my own 3" catback out of scraps from the local muffler shop, and put a "quiet" turbo muffler on the end of it. Should wake it up fairly well.

Just out of curiosity, what's a good realistic estimate of the max power an NA EJ22 can produce with simple bolt-ons? From reading the comments here it seems that the intake side of things is pretty well maxed from the factory, so I'll just leave what's on there... well, on there. Only other thing you could really do then is exhaust, right?
