    Flowmaster cat back?

    I've been researching cat back systems non stop & am gonna order by tonight. I thought i was set on the invidia N1 street but it might be a little too loud. I found this flowmaster & it seems quieter. Anyone have experience with the flowmaster? Or is the invidia not that loud in person? Need a little push from you guys to make a decision.

    Any N1 (huge fartcan style exhaust) is going to be very loud. Also, that slant look is just horrible IMHO. Flowmaster....? you do not have an American V8.

    Go with a proven exhaust designed specifically by a company that knows Subaru's:

    Invidia Q300
    Borla
    TurboXS
    Maddad
    Nameless Performance.

    Those are some good quality exhausts. Cheaping out now will only require to purchase again. Do not rush, do some research and buy quality the first time. IMO Nameless Performance has some great stuff and VERY affordable, if I had an 08+ WRX/STI that is what I would go with.

    I'm going more by sound than price. You would recommend the invidia q300 over the N1?

    Put well you dont have an american muscle car Flowmaster is not made for imports like the subaru. I personally think Invidia makes the best exhaust on the market there is no one better. But like i said thats my opnion. I paid 1100 for my 3" Invidia
    Full turbo back exhaust. Its loud yeah with the 4" muffler but thats the subie rumble everyone loves. I removed the resonator now its even raspier i think its sounds awesome heres a few vids of it. Oh and dont go cheap on exhaust you get exactly what you pay for.

    Good choice, Q300 is nice and ungodly loud like the N1.

    The exhaust I think ctfireman is talking about is actually a TBX Hushpower. Made by flowmaster specifically for the subarus and I have to agree with him they do sound good.
