WRX 2008 Aftermarket Exhaust

what comments can you give me on the ERZ Catback exhaust (single and quad tip)?
I saw on erzperformance.com they sell it (single tip) with a Tsudo Downpipe for 350$...i think its a huge deal but i dont want a crap exhaust. I want a good rumble. Or quad tip and tsudo downpipe for 450$

otherwise, in my price range i liked

-Invidia N1 Racing or Street
-Turboxs Catback
-Magnaflow Catback
-Tsudo N1 Catback>280$..weird

Anyways, this is my first mod, give me your thoughts

Still not sure between one tip or four....hmm

My thoughts....first search. Your question has been answered 100 times over. Search here and then go to 3gwrx.com which is based solely on your car.

Loudest to quietest

Invidia/tsudo N1 > Turbo-xs > Magnaflow

Lots of people are running the ERZ, just depends on what you want. ANY aftermarket exhaust is going to give you rumble, just depends on how much you want.

I have the ERZ exhaust and catted downpipe on my 08 wagon. It works fine, fitment was excellent, sounds mean and my 2 kids love it. I had no problems with it....almost.
It is a bit loud even though it has a resonator. everyone 2 streets over knows when I am comming and going. I cut out the resonator it came with and welded in an 18" resonator after my wife complained it was too loud. That didn't help much. It seems a little less loud now but that could be my ears either getting used to the sound or my hearing being damaged.
My advise is if you are young and don't mind the sound of a loud mean exhaust, get the ERZ. As far as loudness goes it's probably somewhere in the middle. If you are married don't even think about it and buy the SPT, Invidia Q300 or Perrin instead. The ones I mentioned are all somewhat quieter.

Look into some type of EM (engine management) before bolting your downpipe to your car. Or you will more issues than just a loud exhaust.
