    A catback replaces the exhaust from the catalytic converters to the rear bumper

    The SPT exhaust is a catback, i.e.,axleback & midpipe. It is pretty good. Well built & gives you some more noise than OEM.

    But for the price ,there are aftermarket options available.

    Thanks. I was wondering if it was cat back, or turbo back.

    You'll replace it with a better less costly exhaust eventually and spend months trying to sell it to someone else. Just get and aftermarket one. Better sound, better quality, and not horribly over priced

    big +1 to this.

    You can get a nicer aftermarket one for less money. Not much of a decision IMO.

    I like the SPT much more than other exhausts, I wanted something I could hear, but also something that wasn't intrusive. I've had a really loud car in the past and do not wish to repeat that.

    Spt actually is kinda loud. On the inside of the car. Just not on the outside. I still had trouble using my Bluetooth on the highway with my spt. But now I got invidia turboback and equal length headers and its quieter inside now.

    Did you Lose the iconic wrx sound replacing the unequal with the equal length header? Also, just buy an aftermarket exhaust, that way your not financing the exhaust over the term of your car loan, especially if your gonna replace down the road.

    Yes and no. If u do the research you'll see that the Subaru "rumble" is actually coming from an inefficient design only used in America
    But to answer your question. On the inside of the car it sounds like an evo but outside it sounds amazing. Still a little rumble and also something else. None of the YouTube videos do it justice. I've hear a lot of wrxs with equal length but I love the way mine sounds. I also have a catted DP though. Old how much that has to do with it cause I compared mine with a buddies who had the same mods except his wasn't catted and it sounded the same "before EL headers"
