2007 2.5L bad resonator

with car on on a lift, the resonator (part of mid pipe section) has one side edge rusted open --> lots of noise!
one vendor wants to weld it with no guarantee.
the other side may rust open.
best to replace the entire mid pipe with resonator?
besides dealer, any aftermarket places?
URL?
do stainless steel replacement exists?
i am not handy; what is best place to get it replaced if i buy it online?
thanks

If it's a 2.5 turbo try a Hayward and Scott stainless deresonated pipe. If it's 2007 is it outta the three year warranty?

Re: 2007 2.5L bad resonator

it is out of warranty.
it is the most basic impreza non-turbo.
ideal to have stainless steel replacements to avoid future repeats.
if no stainless steel replacements available, what is the next best choice?
thanks

have you had a look thru ebay ?
there is normally plenty of options dependant on your noise taste.

#1
besides increased noise, any other bad outcome/s to just remove the rust-cracked resonator with a straight aluminized pipe?
if not alumnized pipe, what would you recommend?

#2
if you have experience welding the resonator, any gotchas?

thanks

Re: 2007 2.5L bad resonator

many run a straight thru system so I cant see any issues,
Maybe a little more cabin noise on load runs.
