perfect fit....great power gains with em combined with the dp/cbe. You do no need the full tbe, unless you just want extra work, we already have a catless up, so you just need the dp back. keep in mind though the dp is catless, so that combined with the cbe, will be a completely cat free system, but then again, that's the good shit, yeah?!?!

Wow, it can turn well too?

you can see what I have above, and I have had zero boost creep issues, but I do not know what the difference would be between my up, and aftermarket one, but being that they are both catless, there should not be that much difference

i have the cbe so far and im getting the dp very soon, just as 07 rex said its fairly quite until your on it, but its very deep and throaty when your on it. by the way 07 is there quite a difference in the sound after the dp install?

since every evo owner likes to race wrxs...
no exhaust on a boxer motor will sound buzzy and ricey like a honda.
megan racing makes good stuff fits good and sounds good.

any tbe will through a cel without EM or a CEL fix.

any tbe will creep on a 06+ without em. even with em it can still creep, its a mechanical issue with the wastegate.

02 rex is gone.
I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.

TBE = turbo back exhaust. The up pipe runs between the exhaust manifold and the turbo. It is turbo FRONT. Buying a full TBE will not come with an up pipe. yes, the 06-07 do not need an uppipe mod, but a full TBE is unrelated.

From the engine, your exhaust flows through the exhaust manifold (headers), the up pipe (sometimes replaced with aftermarket headers), the turbo, the downpipe, the midpipe (often simply part of the downpipe in most aftermarket lines), and the cat back.
