Wrx exhaust on legacy wagon?
So I have a friend with a stage 2 wrx and I might be able to purchase his old exhaust. I would just like to find out if it would be worth the trouble. Thanks :bbq:

It all depends. What exhaust is it?

shwagoneer 11-19-2011 12:33 AM

I believe it's the stock exhaust off of an 04'.

I don't think you will get any benefit from it. You would be better off getting a decent aftermarket exhaust.

And your friend isn't stage 2 if he is still on stock exhaust lol

John. Stage blah blah blah is stupid.

But supposedly Stage 2 is a tune and a downpipe. lol

I thought stage 2 included a full exhaust system??

Either way...if stage two is that little modding...what would my 95 have been considered? A stage 19,432? trolololol

"stages" are dumb

Everyone around here is "Stage 2, 2.5 or 3" in their newer LGTs. When I'm done with my car, it'll be "Final boss". F stages.

I always was under the impression of Stage 2 being em, and freeing up the intake and exhaust i.e. bigger piping less kinks etc, w/wo cat doesn't matter.

Anyway, is it cat-back or axle back? I *think* the wrx exhaust is a little shorter and slight modification would be needed to make it fit just like stock.

Brok, he is so stage two. The exhaust he wants to sell me
is just sitting
in his

Is the exhaust on his car or sitting in his garage? If its on his car, he isn't stage 2. If its not on his car, then he very well may be.

Stage 2 = catback and downpipe. Don't believe me? Read here

soooooooooooo far off the original topic..

You can put the whole stock wrx turbo back exhaust on your car... You will have to relocate the hangers on the muffler, axleback pipe, and mid pipe. You will also have to add about 4" of pipe to the mid pipe in order for it to reach the converter pipe.

I did this to a WRX turbo back system that I got for free.. It makes the car only slightly louder, slightly deeper, and slightly smoother sounding. I actually felt like I lost a bit of low end torque as well and a tiny bit more pull at the top end. The exhaust piping is quite a bit larger in diameter than the stock size, and that's what accounts for this difference.

It's not worth it.

Go pick up an aftermarket Borla or Vibrant muffler for $120 and have an exhaust shop custom fabricate an cat back pipe.

It'll cost a little bit more, but it's so very worth it. If you don't plan on modifying your engine (cams, head work, etc..) just stay with the stock 2.25" tubing diameter.

His stock one is sitting in his garage, his stage two one is in his car.

Ill probably stick to kennys plan once I have the money.

Toallhisdoom 11-22-2011 06:54 AM

What is a good vibrant muffler to get? Or is any they offer as equally good as any other? And if i just get straight pipe and some bends from napa is that good enough to weld an exhaust together? My cousin can weld pretty good. Sorry to hijack!
