Want a good sounding exhaust
 
I got all new exhaust on my Legacy not long ago cause most of it was rusted out except for the stock muffler. I now have a borla UEL header, magnaflow cats, stock replacement midpipe, and the stock axle back.

The donut that went on the back of the rear cat would not fit the midpipe for some reason. I went and got an exhaust donut from the dealer and it fit the midpipe but was too large for the magnaflow direct fit converter. I finally called magnaflow today and they said send them some pictures so maybe I can get that done this weekend.

I just want a midpipe made with a bit larger diamater pipe and a better sounding muffler. Any recommendations for a muffler? I can get the midpipe made local.

Right now my exhaust sounds like ass cause the converter not being made right is causing an exhaust leak. I also asked a similar question on the local forums but with no luck.

I sure hope you dont want a oval tip...

Zues use to have a 2.25" system with an 18" res and vibrant muffler, it had a nice tone to it.

JJay03 09-11-2012 03:50 PM

Why would I want a oval tip? I wonder what the vibrant is like without the res.

The link you posted is an oval tip lol

in short it will be raspy. You can pick up 18" res for not much, worth every penny

Both links I posted are round tips.The 1046 is a oval muffler with a round tip. I wouldnt think a subaru with a uel header and both cats would be raspy without a res. I thought there was one on youtube without a res.

Maybe the picture just makes it look that way. If you keep the cats then it wont be too bad, but then you keep the restriction you had with the stock system. I guess if you don't care about the 0.0000001 HP increase it doesn't matter

I dont care about the HP much right now in this car. The cats are magnaflows so im not ditching them.

Should I get a resonator also im about to order my parts now? With both cats not sure if ill need a resonator or not with the vibrant muffler.

Kennyfvholla 03-29-2013 03:45 PM

YES, definitely get a resonator. 18" would be perfect.

JJay03 03-29-2013 03:52 PM
