    03 WRX exhaust/muffler question!

    I got an 03 wrx with the full TB exhaust, down pipe, up pipe, ext.. i bought it like that and it came with this huge fat muffler thats angled upwards and crooked and slowly burning the paint away/making everything a burnt black color.. i wish to have something like this instead OBX EVO Style Universal N1 Muffler Subaru Impreza WRX STI RS SP2 | eBay

    could i order this and have it installed at an exhaust shop with out messing up the down pipe/rest of exhaust? ALSO i do have the cobb stage 2 tune setup running, not sure if a huge fat muffler like mine is required for that?

    Lulz...the only thing you need for stage 2 is a downpipe. The rest of the exhaust makes no difference there. The uppipe makes no difference with any of that either. Change out the muffler for whatever you want.

    With something like what you linked to, an exhaust shop would have to cut off the current muffler, and weld that on, as well as weld on hangers which would be an extra $100-$150 in labor. OBX is generally crap. That muffler is a knock off of the Greddy Evo muffler. Keep an eye out for a replacement cat back System, or axleback muffler that you could get and unbolt and rebolt up in your driveway for cheaper and easier.

    even with an axle back muffler, the current muffler is welded to the hangers so i would have to go to a shop eather way wouldn't I? could you send me a link to one? preferably in a cheaper price range

    Axlebacks specifically for Subarus come with hangers.

    Something like this: FS: (For Sale) Prodrive Axleback Round Tip - NASIOC

    Or if you want to buy something off ebay and go to a shop, whatever. Its up to you.
