Alright all - I have two options below. Both have less than 3k miles on them. No issues with either. Help me decide based on quality, construction and sound.
Mishimoto cbe for $400
Corsa cbe for $500

Iím stuck between these two.

The one thing I can't find online is the weight of the Corsa. Do you know by chance? Thank y9ou for your help and input.

I don't know what the weight is. It doesn't hang crazy low - I can only think of two speed bumps in my entire city that they just barely scrape on (both in the same parking lot). Sometimes I can get the perfect angle of attack and make it over without a scrape

Mine has been on since I had 4 miles on the car. I'm a bit over 20k now. Zero issues.

Corsa sounds sooooo good. the resonator does hang down and the previous owner flattened the can when they bottomed out. So I bought it for next to nothing got some stainless welding wire and fixed it. Just laid like a 1" bead where the previous weld on the resonator split. Such a great tone to it especially since I've gone stage 2 now I get pops on downshifts/upshifts. Sounds wayyy better than my friends perrin catback with the same catted/resonated cobb j pipe I have

Default AWE Touring

Installed my AWE Touring on my 19 STI.



Overall, the sound is awesome and the black tips are more incognito looking than bright chrome. The install was very straight forward. There are a few concerning things with how the exhausts mates to the cat flange. When bolted tight, you can still see 1/4 inch of the donut gasket as the flange of the AWE doesn't seem to be as fitted in comparison the stock pipe. Before I purchased, I had asked if you needed anything additional and they said no, so it seems standard I suppose? Additionally, the tips fit differently on the mufflers than each other. Some are a nice snug fit before you clamp them down, while others are very loose. While they are fine when clamped all the way down, in the back of my mind I thought it would really suck if one of these flew off. Out of three exhausts since 2009, SPT, COBB, and AWE, this is my favorite sounding by far.

Hey man, how loud is the AWE Touring exhaust in contrast to other popular brands?

I would say probably comparable to most brands. I only have cat back, no downpipe, and it sounds similar to my old Cobb volume wise. Cold start is loud, once warm it goes down a bit. If you are under 9% throttle it isn't very loud until you hammer it. You certainly notice it a lot more than stock, but I really haven't had to turn up podcasts to compensate for the extra volume. Talking on the phone as well seems to be the same. I wanted an exhaust that was louder than stock, without being too extreme. So far it fits that bill perfectly. The SPT I had in 2009 gave me a headache while both Cobb and AWE do not so that is a plus. I also went with the AWE over Cobb as I read Cobb tappers down to 2.5 inches at the Y and I wanted a straight 3" all the way to the muffler.

Has anyone paired the Greddy Remax muffler deletes to the Greddy midpipe? I'm curious as to how it sounds in comparison to just the muffler deletes.

After thinking about it for a few days. Here is the gap between the stock and the new catback. Any thoughts about the gap between the flange not sitting flush? Unlike the stock connection, the donut gasket is preventing it from mating closer.

HOLD UP. The Q300 is arguably the most slept-on exhaust for 15+ (wrx or sti). It is a little louder than stock (catback), you can still hear it while driving, and you won't piss off your neighbors with winter cold-starts!
Obviously, add a j-pipe/downpipe to make it louder.....catless invidia is what I have..... BEST. SOUND.

Probably. I have a 08-14 Cobb catback that fits my '18, the only difference is that I use an extra long hanger piece for the center hanger.

Installed an Ark Performance DT-S a couple days ago. Sound is amazing, absolutely no drone, but the fitment leaves a big to be desired. Going to back everything off and see if I can get it adjusted in where I want it over the weekend.

I have the same issues on a Borla exhaust on my other car. Sounds good but fitment sucks.

I’m installing a GReddy SP tomorrow on my STI. Will be using the stock DP to 3” Grimspeed adapter. I also have different hangers and large zip ties if I want to adjust the cans.

I have one set of tips that sticks out probably 2" more than the other side, height is solid, and they are fairly well centered. It does look a bit strange seeing the Helholtz cans from behind the bumper but the sound is worth it.

Yeah, not 2” but mine is off by maybe 1/4” on one side which is unacceptable by my standards, but my local buddies say I am being too picky. I’ve never had such issue on Japanese exhaust systems so.. I am pretty annoyed.

New to the forum, running a stock 2015 WRX, but I'm looking to put an exhaust on the car as the stock one is a bit underwhelming for my taste.

I've got some questions about the AWE CBEs (both track and touring) that I'm hoping someone or multiple people can answer. I already know I love the tone of both exhausts, but I'm looking for some advice on the viability of the muffler-deleting track edition.

In Australia (where I'm from), exhausts cannot exceed 90dB(A) (unfortunately it doesn't state at what RPM this volume applies, but I do know that that reading will be taken at rest - e.g. not under load) - I can't find a definitive answer on AWE's website or here on NASIOC, so I was wondering: are either of the track or touring editions louder than 90dB(A)? What is the max volume that the track edition gives? What about the touring edition?

As for comfort - I daily my WRX, so I'm wondering if the track edition will be a little much?
I've seen the "if noise is concern, go with the touring" advice a few times in this thread -- I'm not overly concerned with noise myself, but at the same time I don't want to be "that guy with the obnoxious exhaust" rolling in to work every day.
Is the track edition obnoxiously loud (and if so, is it obnoxiously loud at all times)? If the stock WRX exhaust is a 5, and a normal family saloon car is a 2 or 3, what is the track edition, and what is the touring edition?

Thanks in advance,
-- reset

If stock is a 5, then touring would be around a 7. Track probably 9-10 if I had to guess. I have the touring, but have never heard the track in person. It never gets old and is a great option for a daily.
