Upgraded turbo-back Exhaust Arrived!
[B]Stage 2 power, here I come.[/B] :)

Get it installed Friday, and will be able to shake it down at Mosport DDT Sunday when I help my car Club out there.

Needed the cat-back out of the box to fit in the trunk of my WRX:

Downpipe box:

And I am looking forward to the power upgrade,


as well checking out the performance improvement of the HD bushings and 22 mm rear bar I had installed last fall:



[B]It'll be the shakedown run of this new gear.[/B] :)

Just made the same purchase, more or less. All invidia catless tbe. Got some motor mounts as well for when I'm down there. Lemme know how your install goes.

I think those horsepower and torque numbers may be for the STi...

Either way, many smiles are coming your way!

I am excited to hear your feedback!!!

No, those are WRX numbers. All the numbers Cobb quotes are chp, not whp.

When you're ready look into a custom tune. You'll get a smoother power band, more power everywhere, and a setup that's more responsive to throttle inputs. You do have an up-pipe right?

Yes WRX power figures, yes crank Hp - rather than wheel Hp - and yes I put an Invidia cat-less up-pipe on it when I first got it. :)


sleepr 05-01-2014 06:19 PM

ahh, crank HP...thanks for the clarification!

thekamikaze kid 05-01-2014 10:25 PM

so (just curious) are you tuning with a ots stage 2 tune or a pro tune?

LW_Black4 05-02-2014 09:23 AM

I'm going to run COBB's Stage2 91 octane v310 map for now. If I make any further power upgrades I'll then get a protune.

Here are the first sounds from the new Q300 exhaust. I can't wait to drive it! :)

Lookin' good, brother.

LW_Black4 05-03-2014 06:33 PM

Thanks. It sounds amazing and the new power transforms the drive.

It's not unpleasant, but you can feel the sound in the seat of your pants as you drive. I love it.

Here's a shot of the Invidia downpipe to turbo flange showing the excellent finishing of the thermal wrap.
