    Get one without the bung. Or better yet, get one with a bung for an EGT

    Most downpipes do NOT taper. What catback do you have?

    so i got the go ahead from the wife to get the parts i need for my build, or at least half, of them so im getting basically this is a quick list of it

    Accessport stage 2 516.75
    injen SES Downipe 388.28
    turbosmart BPV kit 153.89
    grimmspeed electronic boost control slenoid 100.31
    megan racing up-pipe 99.23
    a grand total of $1,258.46

    she gave me the go ahead so im going to order them tonight, does it look like im missing anything? and i still dont know what size the catback exhaust is if its 2.5 or 3.0, how would i determine that? do i need to get under the car and take it apartto measure it? i really dont know how to figure that out, im drawing a blank lol

    Don't buy a Megan Racing uppipe. They fit like crap, and the flex sections have been known to blow apart. When you tackle the uppipe install, you'll realize why it's better to spend the extra $50 on a decent part like TurboXS/Grimmspeed than have to do it over again.

    Why are you spending the money on a BPV? The stock BPV will hold just fine with those mods...

    Dont buy cheap ebay knockoffs, thats disgraceful to the Subaru you drive, its not a rice rocket, and you're nota Ricer and it has the possibility to be broken more easily. - Roger
