    decent turbo-back exhaust? for STI

    Hey been thinking pretty hard about getting a turbo-back exhausts for my 02 bugeye STI...its the only mod I really want to do so I don't care how much I spend.
    also, i'm assuming i will need to tune my car to do this ? or not?

    I just want some nice boxer rumble and a little bit of extra power (more fussed on a nice rumble, already like the power )

    neverthless if anyone knows some real good turbo-back exhausts for my sort of car or some trustworthy tbe brands, please comment!

    Thanks!

    Which country? Shop locally because international shipping is high. Ask on Scoobynet.

    Australia,

    saw mechanic today (specialises in wrx and STI) and he recommended these brands: XFORCE, Turbo XS, Cobb

    said they were the best for a good suby rumble and decent amount of performance gains. anyone agree?

    Its just a bent piece of metal. They're all the same if it's catless.
    EDIT: Sorry, this only applies to the downpipe. Catback is the noise maker.

    I've had a TurboXS stealthback for ten years now, no complaints.

    TurboXS is quality. Cobb is quality. Invidia is quality. So many others are quality...it's really subjective to the sound you want and the style you want. Check out some in person and on vids to get an idea.

    Thanks Mickie, if their at least all decent quality then i can be a bit less worried


    mainfraim - this 'stealthback' is a specific type of turboXS system? or is their only 1? if you got any pics show pls - even just tip. or vid

    Also I am going to weld my current stock STI tip onto whatever exhaust system i get...unless it already comes with a relatively small diameter tip (just don't want anything canon-like).

    If you are looking to retain the stock look then stealthback would be perfect. Stealthback Exhausts - TurboXS

    The "stealthback" is a downpipe and midpipe made to mate to the existing OEM muffler. In my case I have an 04-05 STi muffler installed on mine.



    I do have a video clip, however my car has a lot of other mods, so I wouldn't expect your car to sound the same as mine. For one, I have ELH and EWG.. also, the baffles in my muffler seem to not be functioning as well as they once did.

    Here's a clip of what my car sounded like two years ago with the cutout shut..

    yeah that's awesome! exactly how i want mine, maybe with a lil more rumble...i really want the canon/n1 sort of rumble sound, even at low revs. is that possible to do with this system? (i.e. wider pipes etc?)

    There are very few options, aside from a custom built setup, that go bigger than 3 inches. APS has a 3.5" system if I recall, but its hard as hell to find. The TurboXS setup has one of the larger diameter downpipes. Only way to get louder than Robin's setup though would be to add an axleback other than a stock STI.
