    I'd suggest going to the parts department at your local subie dealer and having them order it for you. I did that and didn't have to pay shipping that way. It took mine about 2 months to come in but I think they are coming in much quicker at this point.

    You can also order it online at SubaruGenuineParts.com || Where Genuine is Better! but they are on backorder as far as I know. I'd just go to your local subie dealer and hit up the parts department.

    Soundclips don't really do it justice although I'm not going to say it's the loudest thing on the road. I will say I listened to soundclips of it before purchasing it and I was pleasantly surprised when I actually heard it in person.

    That being said, there are obviously much louder catback exhausts but I'd imagine you'd get the most noise after adding a downpipe along with the catback.

    Warranty

    Depending on your states laws regarding warranties, you may or may not void the warranty. In the state of Maine, this is how it works:
    You can modify any part of your vehicle, i.e. brakes, exhaust, suspension, turbo... withour voiding your warrant of the entire vehicle. The modified part will not be covered under warranty. Any problems that may have been caused by a modification would not be covered under warranty. For instance, if you bought a small truck and put in a lift kit and oversize tires, you could potentially lose the warranty on your suspension, axles, differentials, drive shafts, transmission, and engine because it creates more strain on the drive train. Other stuff would still be covered i.e. your water pump, electrical system, and anything else that wouldn't be affected by the modification.
    In your case, putting a single cat on the up or downpipe could arguably cause problems with stuff like your O2 sensor, Turbo, exhaust manifold, and engine. Personally I would hold off and get the Access Port and SPT exhaust first, that's what my plan is because the exhaust is a genuine subie part and you can always reset your ECU to factory and no one can tell. Keep in mind that your state laws may be different.

    Flashing your ECU to a different map, and back to stock is detectable by Subaru technicians. They won't know which map you used, but the fact it was altered is something they can see. I have not heard of anyone having warranty issues from doing so - but there is a chance you may void.

    My Bad

    Thanks for the correction on that... I had read somewhere that if you disconnect the battery and pump the brakes to make sure the electrical system is dead, and then plug it back in the next morning your ECU will lose it's memory and be back to 100% factory. As I type this I realize how little sense it made. I should have known better, I build computers for a living and know that with an EPROM chip like in the ECU's they do not require power to maintain their settings. Thanks again for the correction!

    It doesn't have anything to do with power to the ECU. At the end of each map, a checksum is generated. As I understand it, even when you reflash back to stock, the checksum will be different than off the showroom floor. I am surprised at this (I am an electrical engineer in semiconductors), but I have read multiple forums on NASOIC talking about it.
