Personally the coolest sounding exhaust I have heard is the Kakimoto GT1 OZ. Awesome sound but loud as blazes. easily the loudest one on the market. Incredible though and better power than anything else I've tried. The HKS I did NOT lie the sound of. Sounds raspy and not as deep. The Blitz is very nice tone as is the Greddy which I also liked a lot. A cheap one which isn't too loud is the Apexi WS exhaust.

Well i'm still a newbie WRXer but I GOTTA get an exhaust on my car, its sooo quiet. I'm used to a borla catback system on my VR4 that was loud as hell...would shake windowpains and such in my house. I read the shootout of all the exhausts and saw that the HKS performed the best and the blitz second.

The blitz...i dont know about that sound...i'm not gunna say anything about it or try to create an analogy cause I may get flamed! haha

Any suggestions, or sound clips...basically anything...I know the 4banger wont sound like a VR4 or a z28...but i'm just looking for a LOUD smooth tone. The blitz wasnt very smooth.

Cheers!

I've got a 2.5" straight pipe on my car and it sounds SWEET! It really brings out the unique sound of the Boxer motor. I was hanging with a couple buddies last night (one of which just got a 2000 FireHAWK!) and got lots of compliments from them! All I did was remove the resonator and the muffler. All 3 cats are still in place.

Go here, there's sound clips of a couple of different exhausts, just click on the one you want to hear, and scroll to the bottom. For most of the catbacks and turbobacks, there's sound clips. For some, there's not. But here, hope this helps.

I have the HKS ca/ti cat back and I love the sound. My next two picks would have to be the Blitz nur spec followed by the prodrive axle back.

TXS Stealthback mated to a Prodrive on my car gets my blood pumping. I LOVE it when it's growlin'. :D It's nice and mellow enough not to set off car alarms when I'm putting around though. :D

I love my Blitz, but unfortunately I haven't heard the Kakimoto in person yet. I do want to hear the Blitz Nur Spec Touring, which is supposedly much more quieter.

The new Vishnu exhaust has a very nice tone to it as well :)

Why did you get rid of your Nur Spec anyway? Are you back to stock exhaust?

I sold my Blitz Nur Spec axle-back so I could get the Blitz Nur Spec R cat-back :) I'm still very much a Blitz man :D

I had the HKS Carbon TI exhaust, but now have an Apexi GT Spec exhaust. I like the sound of the Apex better. Sounds a little more aggressive than the HKS did. No regrets here so far. ;)

An oldermodel, blue Impreza L passed by me at the Danbury Mall this past weekend with what I believe to be a Blitz exhaust. That was the WORST exhaust note I've ever heard - like one of my dog's wet farts.

That's strange, RS_NW had a Blitz exhaust on his RS and it sounded great...nothing like that :(

The first thing I put on my car was a Borla cat back. On a stock car it sounds absolutely phenominal in my opinion.

Once I did my TurboXS up-pipe, ScoobySport down-pipe, ScoobySport catless center section is got considerably louder. I love loud cars so it's not a problem for me. However I can see some people considering it objectionable. But I'm one of those weirdo's who drives around with his radio off so he can hear the motor.

On a stock car I can recommend the Borla to anyone. If you have (or plan on doing) an up-pipe/down-pipe/catless center section, only do the Borla if you like loud exhaust.

exhaust sound

I like my APS sound you can hear here. I think it's deep and mellow below 3,000 rpm, but pretty wicked when the boost ladies are dancing. And no, I haven't set off any car alarms with it. :D
