Default Exhausted??

Iím now to the Subaru gig. Just got an í02RS and want to go for the aftermarket exhaust. I have a few concerns.
1- I canít hang with the Honda noise. Can anyone recommend a cat back exhaust that sounds good when youíre on the throttle?
2- I have heard that down pipes rob mid-RPM power on this model. Any truth to that?
3- Header or not? This thing is mad cash and a pain to install so I want to know if itís worth it.
Thanks for the help.

You will not get the Honda "rasp" with your car, thanks to the boxer engine. You also don't have to worry about losing power mid-range from a down pipe... you don't have one .

of course maybe you might want a downpipe when you're installing that new lawn sprinkler system.
