    Is an adapter needed for the invidia q300 on a stock dp on an '13 WRX?

    Hey guys, I just got my Invidia q300 Quad exhaust for my hatch. And i am wondering if it's necessary to get an adapter for the stock dp? I am new to this and I am installing this myself. I need your expertise on this.

    Grimmspeed makes an adapter for the OEM downpipe to 3" catback, however, you can install it with the OEM donut gasket.. It will seal properly.

    ^^ What he said. You dont need the adapter but it wouldnt hurt to have it. I have read some have had a leak even with the OEM donut gasket but some dont.

    yeah it is a catted. i was looking into the grimmspeed adapter too. but i was good if i take the donut gasket off the oem dp i can bolt the catt with the oem dp and the gasket that came with the invidia exhaust.
