    It depends, what are you changing? What year is your car?

    I'm changing the stock exhaust to the SRS Type-RE. It's a 2003.

    You don't have to do anything for just a catback. Potential power gains are negligible, no change in mpg, nothing.

    Install and enjoy the sound.

    I have a stock 2011 STI sedan and am looking at the invidia q300 catback. Can I safely run the exhaust without reprogramming (w/ an accessport) the car as long as it's the only mod? I plan on doing more and know that I will need to get a V3 in the future; I was just wondering for the time being if it was fine.

    If it is just the catback then you don't need to tune. If you change to a high flow downpipe than you need to tune.

    they are expensive.

    I went stage two for cheaper than a cobb kit or perrin.

    I paid exactly $1,772 for my V3 Accessport, Invidia catted DP, Invidia Dual N1 Titanium catback.

    Perrin's kit is like $2,300 and cobb is over 2k I believe.

    Damn, so best bet is to just get the custom one built and buy the muffler huh.

    Interesting observation on my car. Put a nameless catback on and ever since then the 2015's fuel economy calculator has shown lower fuel economy. Not by a ton, but has made it more accurate in a sense. (as in, before if I averaged a true 26mpg, the computer would say 29. Now if I average 25mpg, the computer may say 26).
    Anyone else noticed this?
