I have been running an Invidia v2 catless DP (used on eBay for $145) and GReddy SP2 CBE (new on eBay $299 - all hardware and gaskets included) for over a year now. So the whole kit for $444.00 shipped to my door. No fitment problems at all. It took me a little over three hours to make the swap, but I was all by myself. It is a great setup for the highway. I've put over 16,000 hwy miles on this setup and I still don't think that it's much, if any, louder than stock inside the cab. Outside is a different story, however. It also sounds really great under load. Around town it gets plenty of looks.

Well, I purchased the COBB catted downpipe. . 595.00

I called them and they told me since the 07's have a good exhaust already, that the downpipe alone would put me at stage 2. Anyone have an insight from COBB that maybe I'm missing ? Thank you all for the help finding something. I just don't want the raspy rice sound on my car, thinking Magnaflow may be the way to go as far as CBE after I get the downpipe installed.

The DP is the biggest restriction on any WRX/STI. It has a flat piece there, were an aftermarket has a larger opening. I have seen pics comparing them but couldnt find any right away.

Installed the COBB downpipe, fit like a glove w/no problems whatsoever. BUT, I installed the COBB heatshield since I was in there and I get a rattle here and there. Any ideas as opposed to "tweaking" it ??
