backbox advice please.

hi all. i'm thinking of getting a backbox for my 2003 impreza wrx, i want something that sounds nice but isn't too loud as i do quite a few motorway miles.
i suppose this question has been asked many times but any advice would be great.

thanks.

Re: backbox advice please.

Hey there im pretty new here but ive been scoobyworld a few times, depending on what you want noise wise the ninja 2 could be a good choice as it has removable muffler. I really liked the racebox nice simple clean design and the use it on their demo car so must be good.

Hope this helped slightly? Harv

Re: backbox advice please.

yes i got mine from scoobyworld this weekend just gone. slot straight on mate. i had mine fitted by their machanic as i was having a service the same day and fitting was free. these are seriously well made and are very simple to fit. very very similar exhaust basically all i can see in change is its a slightly different design and i mean ever so slightly. i imagine the noise note etc is pretty much exactly the same.

UNDECIDED CANT PICK EXHAUST Take a look at thesehttp://www.scoobyworld.co.uk/catalog...hp?cPath=24_53 would suggest ya to, to get the genuine subaru gasket/s cause got my ninja backbox and used scoobyworld gasket and it was leaking from it, for the extra 2-3 it worth it go for the genuine subaru gasket
