    I've never heard that discussed on a Subaru board...just Hot Rod magazine.

    What are your goals for the car? In a nutshell, if you stay with the stock turbo, you'll need engine management (like AP), and exhaust (don't overthink it...piece together a turbo back). If you upgrade your turbo, you'll need the associated accessories (injectors, fuel pump) and the appropriate engine managment.

    As long as you keep one cat in the TBE you will pass inspection. If you get one w/ a catpipe, or a high flow cat you will be fine.

    I got the TurboXS stealthback. it has a cat in the midpipe, but the rest are gone. so i will pass inspection.

    Yea 320 to the crank on a Mustang dyno.

    A cat is a catalytic converter. You can buy Cobb stage 2 with or without a cat. Its more expensive with a cat. I couldn't tell you about passing inspection with it cause I don't have to worry about passing anything where I live.
