When do u plan on doing this? im aiming towards the same CBE but I want a good sound clip of it on a close to stock wrx hatch. Most sound clips on youtube are of STIs and usually includes other mods.

Ark has a video clip of their own on a STi sedan. I imagine it doesn't sound much different on a wrx.

I'd like to weigh in on this.. you ever think about getting a cheaper exhaust system. for example a CNT racing CBE that runs maybe 550$ and use the rest of the funds for other mods. 1300$ for a CBE is pretty steep considering its just stainless steal piping.

not trying to change your mind on the ark because that exhaust looks bada$$ but its just other options.

CNT sounds good. Buddy has one on his stockish DP 2011 wrx. Masdaspeed guys use CNT too and it sounds ok as well.

I just looked at it and the price almost has me sold. Any idea how the sound is compared to the Q300 or Agency Power exhaust?

Can't you call and see when they will be in and order one. It's not like you can put it on right away.

Correct me if I'm wrong...Justin hates the CNT exhaust system because it will rust out in a salt state in the winter.

Well, after a lot of thinking and listening to and driving a wrx with a q300 exhaust, I have decided to get a q300. Thank you all for your help.

I'm sorry you are ending up w the q300. I'm only speaking from experience w it. I had it briefly and I hated it. The quality of it is terrible. They list it as t304 SS but clearly it has some bright coating on it. But hey, if the q300 makes you happy, roll w it. I've just seen/hear too many stories of guys changing it out fairly soon.

What sort of coating are you talking about? The quality of invidia is amazing from my experience. I've ran invidia on my civic for 3 years and have had no problems with it.

Stainless steel isn't suppose to have a mirror shine to it. The q300 in fact does.
