Best Cat Back Exhaust for 05 WRX

Whats the best Cat-back Exhaust system out there for an 05 WRX. I owed 2 2.5RS' and the Greddy and Apex N1 Exhausts were great but i'm not too sure about the Wrx. I was thinking the HKS Carbon Exhaust, looks badass and i've heard a regular HKS exhaust on an 02 and it sounded great. Any Suggestions would be helpful.

let me answer your questions with some other questions...what style do you like? N1 style? angled out? single tip? dual tip? also noise factor...do you want ppl to hear you b4 they see you or do you prefer the sleeper approach...quiet and subtle? those are really the only factors you need to consider when choosing an exhaust (personal preference, no1 can decide what YOU like) they are all pretty much going to net the same gains...next to NONE unless accompanied by other mods...i.e. downpipe, EM....

Best bet is to jump on youtube and search WRX/STIs exhaust clips see what you think from there.

Not a problem man. Sometimes things like that slip the mind. That is how I started looking and gauging exhausts. Let us know what you decide on.

Yeah that is pretty much a given, but there is nothing wrong with that. I love the CBE I have, especially for the price. But dont ask who makes it, I have never heard of them before, and havent been able to find info on them either. But it works and sounds good on the car.
