    Stock exhaust diameter on a 2003 WRX

    I have a 2003 wrx and i want to install a catless 3" downpipe. I was wondering what the stock exhaust diameter is because my exhaust is stock except for an HKS Catback. Thanks.

    why would stock size matter if you have a cat back exhaust

    Well is the stock size smaller than 3 inches?

    Would it make sense to put a 3 inch down pipe on the
    2.25"exhaust?

    You just said you have an HKS catback. So you don't have the stock exhaust. 95% of aftermarket downpipes connect directly to the catback.

    It would make more sense to put a 4" bellmouth downpipe on it. That block off plate robs power.
