    Welcome to the club! congrats on the GT, post some pics

    Its not exactly the same as a WRX. It is however more closely related to the 08 wrx's that had 224 HP. As your GT has 224 and the same year wrx has 265. So your turbo is not the VF-52 that your WRX counter part has. Im 98% sure the turbo back exhaust is also different, as this was another change in the wrx from 08-09+ to account for increasing in HP. Not sure if the dealer explained that to you in detail or not...

    You can look into axle back exhausts, they would be your best bet for saving money and still getting some sound. You can hop on youtube and listen to some brands that people have placed on a similar car. Find one that apeals to you and go for it. You best bet however is to listen to it in person but most of the time thats a very hard endeavor..

    EDIT > Im not 100% on this but i think the GT has the same suspension as 08 wrx's. 09+ gained stiffer spring rates and larger sways.

    Your vehicle is an extension of your skill as a driver, not a substitute for it.

    well congrats on the new car but as it was just stated your GT is not just an auto WRX. i hope the dealer did not tell you that they were the same thing. that would be some shady or crappy salesman.

    i did some research on this car.... and yes in essence it is an impreza with a turbo, it has no body aero kit or rear diffuser or anything like that, although you can get a sports grille on it. it has the 08 wrx automatic turbo in it, that makes 224 horsepower. it only comes in the colors available for the impreza, which are not really metallic that you get with the wrx including wrb, and the impressive red that alot of people love.... although the silver black and grey are available. it has a sunroof and foglights like the wrx premium, it has the silver non-anthracite wheels which were on the 08 wrx's. it has the wrx premiums sound system with the 10 speakers, heated seats, although with all these wrx parts in it, they failed epicly putting the stock impreza seats in the car, hope that heps everyone that hasnt heard of it, i guess you could in essence call it a wrx... just a 2 year old designed wrx

    And the WRX is cheaper. It doesn't have all goodies listed above.

    I'd wait and get:

    1) turboback exhaust

    2) protune

    3) suspension upgrades (sway bars, coil springs, end links)

    4) better tires

    Than you'll be running strong with those others

    07 WRX TR M5 Garnet Red Pearl w/ Straight PPGs and Cusco front LSD (Agile tune:307whp/343wtq)

    Why has the OP been had? They have a nice car with a lot of extras. Maybe they can't drive a stick...

    And you should be able to mod that car just as easily as any other 08 WRX.

    Welcome to the Club!
    Are you looking for a Catback or turbo back exhaust?
    What is your budget for this mod?

    Any Catback designed for the 08+ WRX Sedan will also work on your Impreza GT Sedan.

    Any Turbo back designed for the 08+ WRX Sedan will also work on your Impreza GT Sedan, however you will need to have the ECU tuned to handle the new Downpipe.
