    Question Improving the RUMBLE of the engine?

    I've got an SPT Exhaust that I'm planning on installing anytime soon. I've got a 3" gasket and a gasket maker just in case. But anyway, I'm looking to see what your guys' next suggestion would be to put on the car in terms of aiding the exhaust. I've got a 2014 WRX Hatch with the only mods being: whole stereo system upgrade and a new SPT Exhaust upgrade coming. Just quick suggestions, if possible and I'm trying to stay on the safe side of things in terms of car longevity so I don't want something that will damage the engine little by little.

    Im not sure if thats the correct gasket someone can correct me on this.
    People would probably tell your to get a Downpipe and a tune.
    I have the SPT on my Sedan and its definitely a lot louder then the stock but I am still on the OEM downpipe. There is a drone to it but Im used to it and it only has bothered me on a road trip from NJ to TX last summer

    If your trying to keep your warranty ten just stick with the catback. It sounds great. Nice and quiet when a nice rumble

    You've already made the biggest effect on sound you can. Only other option that changes sound is switching headers to an ELH but I doubt you want to get into the details of that and you probly don't want to lose the boxer rumble. Most people change to ELH solely for the performance. Only other thing to do is a downpipe, but that won't really change the actual sound.

    What do you guys think about an intake, I've heard the puddles kill the car if I go with a CAI?

    With your mods, it's mostly just a noise maker.
