Downpipe fittment question WRX STI GT...
Is it a safe assumption to say a down pipe off a 08+ wrx or a STI will fit a 05 Legacy GT 5 speed.

the part numbers are the same from the Cobb website...

if the part numbers are the same, then they are the same part

lol, i know... it was a stupid question.. thanks!

Yes, that's a safe assumption.

Pre-'08 won't fit but '08+ will.

typrice 02-28-2011 06:03 PM

thank you sir!

I thought the 08+ DP fits, but needs a slight mod?
Like the hanger location, and slightly longer

I believe that's for the PRE '08 WRX DP's.

The newer ones are a direct swap.

No modification needed (unless its a Megan, LOL). Sorry, could not resist.
08+ WRX and 05-09LGT MT share same DP.

Does the front shorty 08wrx downpipe fit a 5eat? Apart from the mounting tab, I think I saw the bend was different but want to confirm.

The shorties are all the same. Look at the factory part numbers... same for 5MT and 5EAT. It's the next section with the 2nd cat that is different.

what about fitment for a 2010 2.5GT?? Will a 2008+ dp or cbe fit?

2010 Legacy has the turbo mounted underneath, and a completely new exhaust design from turbo to tip. Pre-2010 Legacies (and every other model besides the 2010 Legacy) has the turbo mounted high in the engine bay besides the motor. Which is why exhaust pieces were called "up" pipe and "down" pipe on the older models.
