    Welcome to ClubWRX!

    What parts of the exhaust did you have replaced?

    Please read this thread.

    I'm not saying this to be mean, but it's kinda hard to read your post because of your grammar and spelling.

    Please take a look at the picture in this thread, and let us know what part of your exhaust is custom.
    Exhaust FAQ

    In order to use an aftermarket downpipe the ECU needs to be tuned.
    There are several ways to tune the ECU, here are two ways.
    1. Buy a Cobb AccessPort (AP), choose map, and upload.
    2. Go to a tuner and have them tune the ECU.

    Where are you located?

    If I were to start from scratch with what I know now, I would (roughly) follow this path:

    Performance:
    1) good tires (summer and winter...having a second set of wheels)
    2) Cobb AP
    3) DP + CBE (because I also like the sound that accompanies the performance)
    4) Swaybars + ELs (arguably, the first performance mod to make...and I wouldn't argue against it)
    5) brake pads + brake fluid + SS brake lines
    6) short-throw shifter?

    ...tires, ECU, DP + CBE, sways and ELs....all toward the top of the list.

    If you have a full turbo-back exhaust I STRONGLY recomend getting some sort of tune ASAP before something goes. To the best of my knowledge you are going to do some serious damge without it if you keep running without one. if you cant afford the AP and maps i'd suggest taking off the dp if possible. I don't want to be rude, Id just hate to see a fellow rex go bye bye.
    Best of Luck
