new subaru owner

Heyy everyone i jus bought a 2005 subaru wrx and i was wondering if anyone had some advice/suggestions on the:
Megan Racing Subaru Impreza Type 2 Black Catback Exhaust 2002-2007 Subaru WRX.

I want a catback exhaust that could give good clear rumbling sound and some speed but im not really worried about speed i really like the way the wrx sounds with an exhaust....

That one's pretty decent. Have you listened to any sound clips online or have you heard it in person? That's really the deciding factor - as long as you're happy with the price and the way it looks. Cat backs don't really give you any speed - maybe 5-10 hp if you're lucky. They're mostly for looks and sound - and yes, most all of them will give you the nice Subaru rumble that you're looking for. Some will be louder than others, so make sure you listen to a sound clip before you buy it to make sure that's the one you want. I have an HKS cat back on my 07 WRX and it's plenty loud - probably too loud for some peoples' tastes, but I like it and that's really all that matters. Good luck with your decision!

Man Show has a great point. They don't really do anything for REAL performance vs. price on these cars, but when you find one you're happy with, that's all that matters. I got the SPT exhaust on mine and I still feel like it drones out a bit too much at 75-80 unless I'm off the gas and decelerating. I wouldn't say it's really loud in any other instance, but that's what makes it a little difficult. Anyway, check Youtube for a little while and find clips from the back revving, and also drive-bys, as you'll really hear it under load too. Most of the clips have something else combined, like a BOV or something, but you'll get the general idea. Good luck!
