I have the TXS downpipe and race pipe hooked up to the HKS Cabon-Ti exhaust. It is real loud. I love it. The downpipe is overpriced though and I think I am going to take mine off and get a Helix.

I have the whole turboback w/ the RFL-Ti muffler. Couldn't be happier, a little pricey but after about two years of having it on and hearing other exhausts on WRX's, I still think mine is the best.

Are there big power gains from it? I know rallysportdirect.com claims 26.5 at the wheels on a stock wrx. Also i heard a sound clip and it sounds awesome. Is it obnoxiously loud or the perfect tone?

I had a TXS downpipe on my car but I sold it and bought a Helix downpipe instead. TXS downpipe is massive, but I don't think you are going to have that big of a gain over the Helix. The thing I didn't like was that it was pricey($1k+) and its made to use with other TXS parts. If you want to run another cat-back, you need an adapter pipe. I like that I can basically swap any cat-back on my car now without buying any additional parts.

Is the tone of the TurboXs Turbo-back incredibly loud or is it a low grumble that sounds clean and easily noticed?

Im new to forum, but Helix downpipe works good with HKS Carbon TI catback. Only thing you have to do is remember to buy CEL fix. Only other problem is i get bad exhaust rattle. Recommend buying washers when bolting Helix Mounting bracket to factory mounting bracket, it has helped soo far. Also it sounds really "throaty" like a chopper sort of.

He means both of what the quote says.. loud -AND- throaty. Both.
Anyway.. What did you mean when you said "buy the CEL fix"? I was under the impression you could bolt the sh*t up and reset the stock ECU and it would work fine..
Let me know.. thanks.

If you clear the code it will just come back until you get the CEL fix.

I just got this exhaust and I'm throwing it in this saturday. I just read about some owners bumpers melting because the exhaust does not clear it. Have you have any issues with this at all IBAUCLAPlaya or heard of it ?

I have installed a couple, and haven't had that problem. It won't clear a rear diff protector, from what I recall...

If it is too close to your bumper, just get some Kartboy XL hangers and you'll be fine.

No issues at all. The install went extremely smooth, well actually I had a couple of buddies do it for me since I was very new to the modding scene, but everything went well. I have the Kartboy regular hangers and they are perfect. The exhaust is a good distance away from the bumper, some even say too much, but I like how it looks low w/ the angled tip. Good luck on the install.
