New borla cat back

So I'm getting this put in tomorrow by a local mech just wondering if guys had any advice for me. Is it just a simple bolt on? Can any problems arise? What questions should I ask?

What's the model number by chance is it 140075? The xr1 version 3 inch catback? Should have any problem. Really easy to install especially with a torch so you can cut the bolts off.
Should only take an hour and half tops.

Got a 14978 think its 2.5 in. Got it fer cheap too I was told that it was a perfect exact fit, just wanted to check with u guys. It is aggressive, I just hope it's not too loud.

It's Borla it's gonna sound great on the Wrx. I was looking at Borla for mine but too much for the 140075.

Is that the hush? That's what I would have got if I could afford it.

How about a sound clip after you pick it up, I'm interested.
Should be zero problems with that mod as well
