    I'm new to this web...I have some questions in regards to my 2002 WRX. I'm looking to put a mag flow on my car to replace my modified muffler that I have. Does anyone know the original piping size of 02 WRX? Any recommendation of what kind of mag flow is best out there? I'm looking into a universal street series, oval, but not sure which one to go with?

    Original exhaust pipe is 2.5". No advice on a magnaflow muffler as most of us run at least the entire catback and magnaflow is not very popular among WRX's but I'm sure they offer something decent. Though you can easily source a quality catback for a few hundred bucks used via NASIOC or the classifieds here

    WRX stock cat back is 2.25 02-07.. The axle back portion may have increased to 2.5 in 05 when they switched to the same muffler STi/Wrx but the mid pipe is 2.25" STi is 2.5"

    Thanks for the info...Does anyone know any good brands out there that gives off the deep aggressive sound and one that doesn't sound like a rice rocket. I want to be able to have that deep sound, but yet not getting pulled over again for my modified muffler.

    The Borla Hush or Cobb are the best ones to keep away from a ricey sound. They're also pricier than the ricey options, but you're paying for the quality of the materials/build and the fact they took the time to actually make it have a nice sound instead of just slapping together some bigger diameter pipes and calling it a day.

    Exactly. I just got rid of my Borla Hush for $300 in awesome shape all polished up so keep an eye out and you can get a good deal. It had 40k miles and still polished up to look incredible which speaks for the quality of the materials. Spent 30k miles in Jersey and 10k in Colorado and had zero rust.

    Here are some pics to show what I'm talking about
