    So I am new to the WRX world, I just bought a 2006 WRX LTD. All my life I have owned big V-8's so the small engine is kind of a new world to me. My biggest question right now is the car came with a full 2 1/2 straight pipe exhaust system with down pipe. I do not believe it has a cat or anything on it, so besides being extremely illegal what is everyones take on this? I am not one who needs anything extremely loud, I prefer just something that is clean sounding. And secondly if I changed the Exhaust system will I need to have it re-tuned. Supposedly this car came with an upgraded ECU. Any advice here would be greatly apprciated, thankyou.

    Possibly. The only down side is you would be boosting slightly less depending on what you do.

    I have no idea what your asking. Use complete sentences. See mholmes 06's post on how to actually ask a question.

    Not to mention you want the exhaust to exit the vehicle somewhere other than underneath so you don't CO poisoning at a stop.

    Hello all

    I'm kinda new to the Club WRX world and was wondering what size exhaust system I should use on my 2008 WRX sedan. My current mods are a K&N Typhoon intake system, perrin light weight crank pulley, and a short throw shifter (not that the latter 2 would have anything to do with an exhaust lol). I've heard some people say that I should get a 3" system because back pressure is evil to a turbocharged engine. And other are saying that a little back pressure is good and I should get a 2.5" system. What should I do?

    Go 3". Invidia makes good stuff at a good price. Definitely get a tune also for the intake and exhaust.

    I think I'm gonna go with the 2.5". I've posted the same question in another section of this website and others are telling me that my TD04 turbo is prone to turbo surging with a very less restrictive exhaust system.

    Do you know if a good quality BOV would prevent a turbo surge?
