We have several that will put a smile on your face...we are selling our BPM GT for $760 until the end of the month...very nice system we run it on all of our Subby's

As far as passing emissions...if you don't have to pass a visual you will need something with a Cat.

After you check out Boostbuddy.com, you can also check out some of the local shops you have there in AZ. Dynocomp is there in Scottsdale. Then there is IA Performance in Tuscon. These are both good shops and they might even be able to show you cars that have the different exhausts in person, just so you can get an idea of the exhaust note you will get. You can also check out youtube to see if they have any clips of the different exhausts.

Boostbuddy has a lot of the stuff you will need to get going! I would suggest the Cobb stuff. According to some folks I have been talking to at IA, they say that it flows better than the other systems that they have tested. It is a bit pricey, but imo worth it.

from first hand experience, get the cobb. I have the cobb TBE and LOVE IT!!. The quality is top notch and the sound is great. its not to loud at all when idling or regular driving. but you get on it and you know you have a beast. Its pricey, but you get what yoou pay for. I got mine through XRT who is a vendor here. email him and he might be able to hook you up.

oh and if you get a TBE make sure you have EM first and get a catted DP. Alot of people who have 06-07's experience boost creep with a catless exhaust. Cobb actually has a service bulletin on their site

+1 to that. They say the 06-07 has problems with boost spiking without the cat.

How is the difference with the Stg 2 from Cobb? A new machine?

its night and day. I actually went at stage 1 with the Cobb CBE for now. I have the brand new catted Cobb DP in the garage just itching to be put on. But its going to the dealer for an oil change and minor repairs so when its done ill put the dp on. Its driving nuts just looking at it. But, stage 1 in itself is awseome. Im hitting 14psi all day nice and smooth. Plus once i put the dp on the exhaust will sound much better.

Stage 1 from Cobb is the Accessport ECU reflash.

Stage 2 is the AP reflash plus a TBE.

basically....stage 1 is mild engine management ie. cobb accessport stage 1. increases boost, smooths out the power band gives the vehicle more torque by adjusting the parameters on the factory ECU. Stage 1 is a car that is basically stock with possible minor mods such as a CBE or panel filter. Stage 2 is the same as stage 1 but requires a downpipe which really unleashes your vehicle power. Stage 2 increase boost even more, gives it more HP, torque, throtle response, WG duties and all other things involed with tuning a vehicle. The Cobb Stage 2 package (which is what i have) runs from about $1700-$1900 depending on where you get it from. But that includes the AP, and turbo back exhaust. and the AP does much more than just "re-tune" the ECU. The total package raises the boost to about 15psi with and an 07 will have about 225 wheel horse power. there are other engine management programs on the market which are cheaper. but i feel the the ap is the easiest due to the OTS (off the shelf) maps. And is usually the preferred for WRX's

I got the HKS hi-power CBE on mine and it sounds good. The difference between CBE and TBE is the DP.
