    Up pipe question

    I've seen a lot of posts recommending gutting or changing the up pipe.

    I just wanted to know if this was necessary on a new 2013 wrx or is this just for older , high mileage vehicles?

    I've been reading tutorials on doing this and seems like a pretty serious project for a first timer.

    Thanks in advance for any info !

    They are referring to 02-05 WRX.. 06+ WRX and 04+ STi come from the factory with a catless uppipe, basically anything with a 2.5L.

    LGTs and FXTs of some years have catted uppipes, as well, regardless of being 2.5L, as you well know, but semantics...

    It's still beneficial to get an aftermarket one. Especially if you hear wrap it. Most people do it when they get new headers
    2013 WRX sedan - MODS = pretty much every bolt on besides a bigger turbo.

    Unless you're swapping the turbo or going EWG, I wouldn't bother. For the money spent and the nuisance of an install, it's not worth the gains.
