Arrow I was gonna wait until the spring but.....

I went out on a limb today... i got a pocket full of cake and went to Pro-Spec in quincy ma. The guy there andy, for those of you in the area, was indeed the most knowlegeable wrx geeks i think ive met.

Anyways, he talked me into getting the Tanabe Medalion Concept G blue. If you guys dont know, its full catless tbe.

1st question - what will this do for my hp and tq gains in low mid and high rpms.

2nd - cels, there all over this forum. what are the best (if applicable) kind.

3rd - will the addition of an up pipe have a noticable addition to hp/tq?

Thanks guys -

1st-between 20-30hp
2nd-get some engine management or use the mechanical fix/part.Almost all vendors have them
3rd-much quicker spool up = torque shift to the left

I have the Tanabe Hyper Medallion Titanium and I love it. Without the baffle/silencer in the muffler it is quite nice... real deep rumble, but at wot is very loud... With the baffle/silencer still a nice rumble but much more subdued and stealthy, and at wot nice but not too loud... By the way I am running full turboback.

Thanks to all. The only thing i'm worried about is the noise level. I live in a small town were cops will notice it and definately look underand see that there aren't any cats. I think im going to have the silencer installed upon initial installation, then take off if im wrong. Any of you know how loud compared to lets say the HKS-Hi power?
