    $700 for a Chinese eBay exhaust? They claim its an invidia but how do you really know? You can buy a REAL magnaflow for that price. Or get a REAL invidia q300 with the quad tips for about $200 more. Plus it'll look lame on your 2011 with the single tips on each side.

    My advice?

    Save an extra $200 and get the q300 that was designed for the 2011+ wrx

    I thought Invidia was a Chinese knock off.

    save your money in general and don't even worry about the exhaust... it nets almost zero gains and it's a lot of money that you could use to go all the way to stage 2 IMO anyway.

    right now i have like 3 months left in afganistan. as soon as i get home im going stage 2 right off the bat. parts are all sitting in my garage. ive only driven the car for about 2 days before i left. i traded my 2012 boss mustang for it. having a 2011 wrx premium spw with 7k miles on it beats the crap out of a 713 mustang payment. plus i can put car seats in the wrx if needed. but when i got the car and drove it for 2 days. the one thing i could not stand was the shifter. so all those parts are waiting at home too. but i felt if the car was closer to 300 wheel horsepower, id be more happy wwith the car. so far i have a cobb intake, catted DP and tactrixs cable waiting at home aswell.

    i know there are no gains from a cbe. with just adding the downpipe add volume to the stock exhaust?

    Maybe some DP's do... I didn't notice much, or anything at all from mine. I bought the TurboXS one.

    yeah you won't see much change in the noise volume on your exhaust as long as you have the stock mufflers on there.

    just found these. i cant see spending 1000 on catback for no gain, but might justify a few hundred for some sound

    I've heard good things about nameless, invidia, turboxs, perrin, etc, etc...It really boils down to the sounds you are looking for, which is hard to judge unless you hear it in person on the same car you drive. Youtube can give you a general idea, but definitely not like in person. If I were you I would save my money until I was back in the states and could hear some exhausts in person. That way you don't end up buying/selling because you find you don't like the exhaust notes.

    I've had the opposite experience. Back in 2002 I went catless TBE with the stock muffler and my car was instantly twice as loud and much more gurgly.. fast forward 11 years and I'm running ELH and straight through exhaust with a stock 2004 STi muffler and everyone comments on how loud my car is..

    That is interesting...I would think that with stock mufflers you wouldn't notice too drastic of a chance, as that is where the packing material resides that is supposed to "muffle" the exhaust sound. Although I will take your word for it since you experienced this two times!

    On a side note, I often times get comments on how loud my car is as well, and my exhaust system is completely stock!

    i really dont want the car too loud. i know the spt is alittle louder than stock but if i can save money going with something else i will. but if catbacks dont offer any gain, whats the upside to changing out mid pips aswell as opposed to just going axleback. i already have catted downpipe and cobb intake sitting at home waiting on me.
