Traded the 2.5i for a 3.0 R
 
My family traded the 2006 Legacy 2.5i for a 2009 Legacy 3.0 R Limited. Is there any upgrades you can do to the 3.0 R besides the raptor S/C i found on this forum? Which exhaust can go on it? Any better intake systems? I'm just curious if there are any little mods that can be put on a 3.0 R?
Thanks

Haven't found anything worthy yet myself. Our exhaust is different than the GT exhaust, so they don't fit.

If you wanted to mod it, why did you get a 3.0R and not a GT?

GT Axle-back systems should bolt up no problem.

But yeah, the switch from 2.5 to 3.0 should be a big enough difference to appreciate in itself!

Dat sound.

I already have a GT @ stage 2.
This is the car that replaces the 2.5i, more of the family car.

Yeah interesting that no body has made true dual exhaust kits for the 3.0 R since there's room.

For $1600, you could get an STI muffler kit!

Stupid question maybe, but is there a link or source you'd be able to share that confirms this? I'm in the market for an exhaust for my 3.0R as well and havent been able to find a definitive answer on this...

The GT cans that bolt up to the stock y-pipe are confirmed to work. I have a set of the JDM STi quad tips on my car. Bolted up just fine.

AVO has a 2.5" midpipe that works well with our NA cars too. I haven't felt a noticeable drop off in low end grunt, though I've certainly noticed that the car sounds a hell of a lot meaner throughout the RPM range.

The Aussies (tradewind) have also developed a set of headers.

If you can get E85 fuel in your area, get injectors, E85, exhaust, and a tune.
