So I wound up recently purchasing an 02 wrx sedan, a big bump up from my old car ( a 1987 Porsche 944S ) AND I'M FED UP WITH SUCH A QUIET CAR!!!!! I had a 3" pipe with a big ol' Borla on the 944, I had no clue what road noise was, all I heard all day everyday was my exhaust, and I miss that SO MUCH! The thing is, I don't have the green to make a nice catback exhaust appear, and I'm looking for a cheaper alternative for more noise.
SO! I've not spent a lot of time looking around. But on average it looks like I'll be spending upwards of $500. I've looked into straight pipes, but no back pressure is making me steer clear of them. And Ebay is well known to have items expected of a dollar store. Would I be best off by lurking here until a used one pops up? I'm just looking for an affordable ( N1 style preferably) exhaust system for my car that gets it away from that god awful stock sound. THANKS!
