    Question about unlabled exhaust.

    Hey guys, I recently bought a 2007 sti. It has a couple after market parts, one being an exhaust. The problem I have though is that it has no label (that I can see) or part number. It was purchased from a ford dealer so of course they knew nothing about it. I was hoping that maybe if I put pics of it up maybe someone more knowledgeable than I couldClick image for larger version.

ID:	115935 identify it. At least maybe tell me who makes it. So here are the pics. Also, sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask this in. I don't think it is though

    It possibly could be a "custom" made. It's a cheaper route than purchasing an aftermarket. What the previous owner did was probably just go to a muffler shop and have them slap on some piping.

    Looks kind of similar to a Borla XR-1.

    Looks like a knock-off Cobb exhaust to me... could be an unknown e-bay brand:

    Could also be a JNA exhaust (also a Cobb-ripoff)

    Yeah it sounds really nice and has an up pipe also. It has a very nice low rumble. I'm just now learning about modifications so I'm going to stop right there for risk of sounding like an idiot

    That's either a SpeedTech, JNA, or Surewin Products. However, no matter the name they're all the same exhaust, just different sellers.

    At the end of the day, this is the important thing. As long as it is structurally sound and you like the noise it makes, then you're in business! What other aftermarket parts does it have?

    Haha yeah it definitely turns heads with its nice low rumble. The other aftermarket part that is blatantly apparent would be this nice cold air intake. Anything any one could tell me about it would be awesome, like what the black chip on it does lol. Also, here is a pic of what I am guessing is the aftermarket up pipe connecting to the....turbo? BTW this is my dream car and I love it. I want to learn as much about it as I can.

    The black "chip" in the intake is the MAF sensor. That needs to be there.

    The exhaust part you pictured is the downpipe. See below:

    I hope it's been tuned for these parts.

    First thing to do would be to find out if it's tuned or not.

    and the two popular tuning options are either by OpenSource or Cobb Accesport.

    OPENSOURCE TUNING: Your questions answered here!!! RomRaider + Tactrix

    Accessport (AP) is pretty self explanitory, Click around here. You can also get older AP versions that are cheaper lol.
