well welcome to the boards, and u got good taste in car choice. lol. try looking on nasioc classifieds, or i would invest in INVIDIA brand CBE, u can get those brand new for about half the price of some other brands plus it's on the best IMO. stay away from ebay parts

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

I disagree, my CBE I got off eBay sounds better than HKS, Invidia, APEXI, TSUDO, name it...sounds better and helped w/flow from what my boost gauge reads. Do a search for ERZ SRS. Nissangtpower is a good seller. Haven't had an issue yet. It's an angle out but still does the job. 250.00 shipped. But he is correct. That will be the only item I get off eBay.

A CBE is more for sounds than anything. Some will argue different, but with not much upport for either side of the arguement. The subaru downpipe design is the major flaw in the exhaust system. Check out youtube for what different exhausts sound like on the car, or find a local meet if you can.

CobbTuning.com - Exhaust Design Just a little generl knowledge about exhausts.

it really is hit or miss with those ebay exhausts, i had an ebay CBE on my bugeye and it developed a crack on the muffler, resulting in an exhaust leak in just about 7 months or so. it was a quick and cheap fix to get a local welding shop to fix it, but looked a little ghetto.

+1 for full invidia TBE. I have the cattless setup (bellmouth + G200) and sounds delicious, lil stinky though. Z

went with the ebay CBE. it was a JDM and it sounds good but not like an hks or anything i paid 180 all together. i decided to have a local shop install it, good thing too since that mid section pipe wasnt long enough. the shop had to cut the flange and weld in more pipe. had it since january and so far no problems but im waiting for my luck to run out.
+1 to TBE
wish i had done it all when i was down there
