They're both fine. It's about sound and price mostly. Personally, I don't like the sound of either.

I like exhausts with a deeper more muffled sound. Unfortunately, the 08+ wrx doesn't have near as many choices as the 02-07 WRX had so I'm not as familiar with which made the transition. Like I don't think Perrin is making exhausts for the newer models?

The 08+ WRX SPT intake is nice, and can sometimes be found for really cheap.

SPT does not make an Intake for the 08+ WRX's, but i've heard the SPT exhaust and it sounds nice. Are you more concerned with sound or price?

so stock its not even funny...just kinda sad :(

If you want something loud but like the deep sound, that's the one to go with. The SPT is probably similarly deep but not as loud.

Note people generally do loud exhausts once, and then get something quieter they can live with

Quite possibly the best exhaust system out there for street Subarus...

At least the 02-07 Impreza version of that exhaust was fairly loud and tended to drone. Not sure if the new one is any different.

The Q300 is completely different and much more quiet than the G200 or the N1...

The loudest one is the N1, then the G200 and then the Q300 which compares to the Greddy SP2...

I'm looking to do a dual exit. I'm thinking about the turbo xs... What do you guys think about that? I want a dual exit. Not to loud but will turn heads. I was looking at the spt first but I'm afraid I'm gonna spend the money on it and it's not gonna be loud enough
