Yes. I used to run a GDB STi exhaust on a GF wagon with EJ253 swap. It was quite a bit louder than on the donor car. Sounded good, not raspy or anything, but louder than the STi.

I've seen a few GH8 CBEs on 5dr 2.5i Imprezas. The owners say they are louder than stock.

The turbine does a really good job of chopping up sound waves and because of that, the muffler can be less restrictive.
The fact that many revolutionary new ideas were at first ridiculed is no proof that the 'new' ideas you're being ridiculed for now are indeed visionary.
