Most of them... I bought a AMK catless bellmouth DP for about $100. It rubbed the bottom of my car in 2 places, bolts didn't match up to turbo and was 1.5 inches too short. So if you add up the cost of it, time I spent bending fitting and drilling that POS X minimum wage = The cost of a high quality name brand DP. I've learned my lesson.
dumdum, Thank you for all the help you have given me on these forums allready. This may sound like im trying to argue with you but I assure you I am not. I value your opinion and the opinion of other members here.
Quality of steel: True but in my eyes, a piece of 304 stainless is the same no matter what company uses it.
Are you really getting 304 stainless?Also gauge is an important factor as well
Quality of welds: I understand this one very well, I used to rockcrawl quite a bit and I know that I would trust my old bosses welds over mine anyday.
Quality of fitment: Another real good ting to have but from what iv read on here, not all but most of the bay exhauts fit exceptionally well.
If you are just going by whats on here you need to expand your world.I frequent about 4-5 different Subaru sites.The Big one being NASIOC.I wouldn't go as far as exceptionally well.Quality control is somewhat sacrificed.
Quality of sound: I think you might have gone over my head on that one. Explain?
Borla is one example.Flowmaster is another.Basiclly has to do with the quality of the muffler design and packing material.
So from the above, I can not see paying upwards of $600 more for a name brand exhaust.
I wouldn't pay that much either.Thats why I bought my Autospeed exhaust for $200 used off ebay
