exhaust debate

Does the Helix turbo back and up pipe exhaust have a high pitched sound or a deep rumble? If so what exhaust system has the deepest rumble

and I've heard that a downpipe won't do much compared to the stock one in an 05 wrx

I have Helix turboback and uppipe on my 05 and its a nice, deep rumble, but then again, all WRXs with exhausts have a deep rumble. There are exhausts louder then Helix, but I think it has a nice sound.

i just ordered the invidia dp ( getting it tomorrow according to ups). I have 3" catback and it sounds mean, as you guys know. What kind of change in the sound can i expect? I heard that it may sound deeper.

Also, what kind of hp gains can i expect? Invidia claims at least 20 hp.

you'll definetly get a much louder exhaust note...as for the extra hp, i'd say around 5-10...

Jave is more helpful than not
It is more than 5-10 HP. My car fully loaded now(an extra 650-700 Lbs) pulls as hard as my car before with just me after the TBE was isntalled. trust me you will notice the difference.
