    is it borla?

    Hi to all wrx lovers. "Recently" i posted a thread about swaping my 2006 wrx automatic to 5 speed. After reading all opinions i decided not to do it.So i traded my 06 wrx for 2011 rally blue wrx sedan. I love it!!!! I just installed invidia dp on it and looking for some good and loud exhaust.So far everything comes up to Borla. Never heard it on the street but after some research looks like its the only one that will work for me.its kind of pricey but hopefully worth it.Any suggestions? Thank you for any advise.

    Borla isn't obnoxiously loud.

    Go to local meets. Listen to exhausts in-person. Video clips suck.

    TurboXS is pretty loud/raspy; I like it.

    Based on your username, you're in NY. You'll have lots of fun with the police there since modified exhausts are illegal and cops love to stop you and give you tickets for them...

    The Nameless exhaust will not likely be loud enough for the OPs wants.

    Depends. My XR-1 is pretty loud, and I don't get bothered, but it looks OE.

    Nameless, borla, cobb.. all will be throaty but reasonably quiet and all of very good quality.

    On my 2010.. the turboxs was awesome with the factory dp.. but got unholy angry with a aftermarket dp. It went from throaty rumble at all rpm to raspy all the time and homicidal demons escaping hell at wot..seriously the downpipe made that much difference in sound. I loved it, but it was far too loud for daily driving duties imho.

    Loud is fun till you have to spend more than a hour in the car ... then it starts to suck teh ballz quick.

    so ok. My boy just put dinan exhaust on his 2003 M5. On his facebook it sounded sweet.Not to loud but really good. I just met up with him in person and that exhaust is F***** sick!!!! Nothing like online bs. Loud as hell and poetry to my ears. So i know from now on not to judge after some on line video. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. I would love to take the resonators out but dont want my subie to sound like a civic.So far i think i will go with the borla.

    the borla is a good choice.. but it will be pretty quiet. Louder than stock yes, but not by much. And honestly that's a good thing if you want to live with it for long rides.

    secondly.. your wrx will NEVER sound like a honda. Even with a el header (which takes the rumble out) they dont sound honda'ish. Unless you change the header you'll always have that paired exhaust note rumble they're famous for.

    Borla is too expensive.

    ^ for my wallet.. yep.. but I'm the guy running a invidia dp and a spt exhaust. I didn't like the increased cop attention from the turbo xs. And I'm gettin old, it was just too loud.

    Only one guy locally had the Borla and its been a few years since I heard it. Not sure if you've heard one recently, is it about as loud as mine?

    ELHs on a Subaru sound awesome, IMO. It will quiet the exhaust a bit, and make it sound more like a Porsche than Honda.
