    Talking Howdy guys! '06 WRX exhaust questions...

    Hey everyone. Well I actually drive an E46 328i BMW, but my good friend just bought an '06 WRX. I'm also a fan of Subarus! While we've been planning exhaust searches for a while, neither one of us knows who has a good reputation, durability, etc. He used to have an '01 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS, and a Mustang GT with "H-pipes." We're looking for a sound that will be very agressive, but that won't be THAT loud while cruising. He loved his Mustang with no cats, and the "H-pipe," if that's a reference for how loud he likes it! Heres what we've come up with so far...

    1) Cobb tuning; Visited the post from last year with all the clips and liked the Cobb sound. Durability, reliability?

    2) SPT performance from Subaru; I guess it's a Bosal system, but we haven't heard any clips of the SPT. Is it garbage compared to what we're looking to do?

    3) Blitz Nur-spec; God this exhaust sounds mean!! Is it worth the price?

    Any other suggestions? He'd like to keep it under 700-650. Thanks in advance to those who can help!

    Exhaust Video/Sound Clips

    That may be of some help.

    I did try this before and it's been a great help. I guess I was after real-life testamonials. They all sound good, expecially the RS*R! But, how's quality on all of them, etc.

    I am searching for an exhaust too and have decided on the Blitz Nur Spec. My friend with an 02 WRX has it on his car and it sounds awesome. You can really hear the rumble...but it is loud.

    I have an 06 also, and I was wondering if my car sounds more like an Sti or a Wrx 2.0...since I haven't heard any 06wrx2.5 clips. If anyone has exhaust clips with the exhaust on an 06 wrx, please post a link!

    I know exactly what you mean! We've been kicking that around forever. I imagine there must be a deeper tone to the 2.5 flat 4, even though the HP output isn't quite STI (or STi) material.

    The boxer engine sounds pretty much the same weather in the wrx or the STi.... the STi's ive heard sound the same to wrx's.

    I have a blitz nur-spec on my 2.5 rs. It sounds very nice and very deep. But When/if I get my 06 wrx I am not going with the blitz. Though the catback sounsd awsome on the rs, it is still only a catback. With the wrx I would probly go with a catless turbo-back which would make the nur-spec way too loud for my everday driving on the highway and such.

    Some times I can't see out of the rear view mirror because of the vibration for the exaust. It does sound great from the outside so its worth the loundness on the inside. .

    As far as the SPT I havn't heard much on it, bit it dosn't seem to be very popular. And for the cobb, it sounds great and the qulity is top notch.When I get my wrx I am planning on getting the invidia g200 ti because it looks awsome and is not that loud when jsut running a catback.
