Upgraded turbo-back Exhaust Arrived!

Stage 2 power, here I come.

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:





It'll be the shakedown run of this new gear.

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.

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!

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.
