Default Stromung Midpipe: diff. part for Legacy vs. Impreza?

I just installed a new borla gen4 header, stromung hi-flow cat, and attempted to connect my stromung axcel back with a stromung mid pipe. W/ the mid-pipe in the mix, the middle mounting bracket was too far too rear... mid-pipe is too short when compared to stock setions lined up next to new bits.

Are there two different Stromung mid-pipes... one for Legacys and another for Impreza? This seems logical considering the Legacy is a bit larger car... an oversight on my part?

Thanks in advance to anyone in the know.

And damn... having a discerning ear, it's hard to tell what is just new exhaust noise due to header and hi-flow cat vs. exhaust/gasket leaks.

I had to pick up a Forester donut gasket for Stromung cat to mid-pipe flex joint, as the legacy spec part number was too small in diameter. Apparently Stromung made their pipe larger in dia than stock legacy cat connection.

Seat of pants results: definately is louder, and pulls a bit bedda. Seems like a great combo so far, especially w/ new lightened flywheel and intake.
