    How do you plan on tuning the car?

    I prefer a catted DP. The loss in hp is small compared to catless. I had a catless setup on a previous car and didnt care for the fuel smell that catless has.

    It's not just about peak power; response/spool will be better catless, as well.

    Ok, after much reading and learning, I've decided to complete my mods like so:

    CBE > AP > DP
    then brakes & suspension

    My question is for the CBE:
    Which of these 2 (TurboXS Cat Back Exhaust Titanium Tip Subaru WRX / STI 2002-2007 at RallySportDirect.com) and (Invidia N1 Cat Back Exhaust Titanium Tip Subaru WRX / STI 2002-2007 at RallySportDirect.com) to buy?

    I'm looking for a very bass-y deep exhaust note, but I dont want a lot of pops and raspiness. Just a nice low rumble. Which of the above CBEs are closest to what I'm looking for?

    (I wish there was a meet up around these parts so I could hear some exhausts in person, but Youtube is going to have to cut it for now)

    No one can answer that for you as far as preference. TurboXS will sound the best IMO.

    Right on. I was just wondering if anyone had ever noticed any particular popping or raspiness from either of those 2 CBEs.

    Popping will be more down to the tune, BOV, and DP (catless) I suppose (never had a car that popped).

    If you want deep and not raspy, get a resonator (or an exhaust with one), whether it is inline or integral to the end can.

    Both of those CBEs are going to be loud. They will both have some rasp as well. They are straight through canisters, so get ready for some obnoxious noise either way.
