    I cant say that your going to get a full exhaust of decent quality for under 300... I picked up just my Cobb DP for 300 but that was through a private seller and a pretty good deal too.

    erz racing catback + erz racing downpipe = $350 bucks

    it's an "ebay brand" i've had mine for years- no problems. i know ninefourtneener will also vouch for it, as well as a few other members.

    this exhaust isnt for everyone but the people who do have it- love it

    Where do you live? If you see winter than you will likely not be able to get a good exhaust for what you want.

    i have the ERZ DP and UP for a little over a year now and now complaints. I took it off recently and no noticeable damage or wear. Just dont use thier trashy gaskets replace with OEM gaskets and you should be fine then find a used catback that'll prolly be your cheapest overall route. Or just a full ERZ TBE

    I had a full SR*S exhaust from the header back (I think it may be the same as the ERZ?). I live in Ohio so we get a lot of snow and road salt, which did give the exhaust small "rust" spots everywhere but they cleaned up with a little elbow grease. I really did like the exhaust just went back to stock setup. It wasn't expensive at all, under $700 shipped for header, UP and TBE.

    Can't speak for price but if you've ever heard an Invidia TBE...OMG it's like heaven in your ears...lol

    I have a full catless MRT TBE & UP and have gotten numerous compliments on the sound from both Subi and non-Subi drivers alike. It's not "too" loud until you actually open it up and looks almost stock from behind so I've never been pulled over for it (knock on wood). That being said, I have 0 cats left on my car and FL has no emissions so I would not recommend it to anyone who's local laws are even the slightest bit strict.

    There are a world of possibilities, you just have to decide what you are looking for and comfortable with.
