The sti uppipe is the same as the stock one, without a cat in it. As with any uppipe, you shouldnt expect any gains, maybe a bit faster of a spool up and thats it. The main reason for getting rid of it is so you can safely turn up your boost.

They sell them at subaruwrxparts.com for 275, which is a little pricey. Try looking around on forums or ebay or whatnot for a used one. Or check out prices at a subaru dealer.

Why not just buy an aftermarket one? Cheaper and just as good (if not better).

I bought a JDM STi uppipe for $150 here in Tucson & I think my guy can get more if you need one. He can ship it to you.

I just got my WRX about 2 months ago. I bought a turbo timer that I will be installing this weekend. The next part I want to get is an uppipe. I obviously want a faster car, but i am paranoid about wrecking my new car so I figure the turbo timer and the uppipe are good initial mods to increase the safety of future, power adding, mods. Any problem with my logic there?

My actual reason for posting here is because I want a quality uppipe. The perrin seem solid, but i really don't have any evidence to go on, so I would like some confirmation or suggestions for a better one(reasonably priced). I was also reading the install directions, and they seem pretty complicated. I'm ok doing some stuff, but I don't know if I want to be jacking up the engine. Is it as difficult as it seems, and does anyone know about what it costs to get it installed?

Thanks,
Mark

The Perrin is one of the nicest out there in my opinion. It retains the stock inside diameter which is optimal for the stock turbo. The instructions will all be pretty much the same for the Perrin, unless you decide to remove the turbo and install it that way which is more difficult. It isn't that hard, just mostly time consuming. All I have heard is good things about the Perrin uppipe. One vote toward the Perrin!

PS: I like your logic too
