Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2003 Type UK - Cat-Back Questions

Hey Guys,

Subaru Impreza WRX STI 2003 Type UK - Cat-Back Questions

I'm thinking about getting a Cat-Back exhaust system for my 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Type UK (totally standard no ppp).

I have seen on at scoobyworld.co.uk which includes an afterburner decat centre section and ninja silencer.

My first question is this - is this going to be really loud? I don't want something that starts to annoy after a while, I'm OK with something loud when on boost, but gentle motorway driving it could get on my nerves.

(other back box options include ninja 2, afterburner or racebox? - I'm all new to this!).

Also, I was just going to get kwik fit to stick the exhaust on, I don't have the money yet for a re-map. Will this cause the car to perform less efficently? I would like the nice boxer rumble, but I'm not so keen if the car suddenly seems to run slower.

All the best and I look forward to your advice - James.

Hey "ThePilot",

Thanks for the quick response! Good news about the ECU - I had a feeling they were able to learn new set-ups :-)

Just transfered the cash from my savings so I will order this on Thursday :-)

All the best - James.
