Alright cool, sorry for the new user name. Work has FB blocked and I logged in that way via home, had to create a seperate account for work haha. Based off what I posted for a DP though, the ebay link, everything looks good?

I wouldn't run Catless and I'd make sure the DP still works for your year.

Alright, if you were in my shoes, and you wanted to get that mini HP boost, as well as the classic subaru Rumble, what would you go for? Budget of 3-400$ in mind, less is better.

If you are getting the DP and a AP you can do stage 2 and get a big hp gain, the mufflers are what is limiting the rumble, you wont tell any difference when you just have the DP with stock exhaust, I had that set up when I first got my car, and it was quiet.

Most catted downpipes are in the 500+ range. The catless are so so, some people get boost creep, some people don't. I have a catless, and I don't get any sort of boost creep, catless will also make the exhaust gas smell like fuel, I don't mind it, but some people do.

Edit: Dumb question after reading all your previous posts. Deleted

I've decided to just buy the AP V3, with the Kartboy combo to start. Once I get settled in with that, I will look into an exhaust, better save more money up instead of bargaining and getting something I won't like. Thank you all for your posts.

Donon Haines,

I know you already dropped some cash on the AP but if you have any extra i would seriously consider some suspension and stopping power love.

If you have 200-300 leftover I would say the anti-sway bars are the best upgrade for the money. they help you keep the wheels down around the corners and they increase confidence in your system.

If you haven't spent yourself out already I'd look into some stop-tech brake upgrades, they make some stainless brake lines that take up the slack in the brakes and you can get them for less than a hundred dollars.

Just want to make sure ALL of your money is spent : /

I managed to snag a Cobb V2 AP, all weather floor mats and a AEM Cold air intake for 450$ from a guy who totalled his Subaru who lives near me off of NASIOC. Just need that catted DP!

Sorry for his loss, But that's a screamin deal. Not sure what kind of collision it was in but make sure that intake or the filter wasn't damaged when the car was totaled. When you stage-1 or 2 with the access-port make sure you run a few data-logs so you can verify that everything is running happy.

Well I can confirm the AP and floor mats work flawlessly. Upgraded to Stage 1 in the parking lot where I met him right there; OH BABY. The intake looks flawless, I'll be installing it this weekend and I'll see how it runs. His collision was he wrapped his car around a tree, so he collided driver side back door to a tree.
