whats up everyone i do not currently own a subaru and am looking into an 07 impreza nothing fancy just 5 speed in gray as much as i would love to think of purchasing a wrx the insurance and my debt would just kill me to much so i figured id just get my hands wet. so i have a simple question the car is bone stock. i have always admired the sound of a wrx and so i was curious if i were to purchase a cobb exhaust would i achieve that sound with out making it sound like a 25$ muffler from pep boys or is that sound made from the wrx specifaclly due to the down pipe and exhaust from the turbo? im not that informed on it so i would appreciate anything else you know about the subaru.

heres the site to the car if your interested in gandering at it


thanks again

you shouldnt when I first got my car the first thing I put on it was exhaust and I got that deep sound not the typical rice runner sound.

so it doesnt have anything to do with the turbo or the down pipe. thats all i want is that nice deep sound out of the car at the moment. thanks though. what kind of exhaust did you get and was it a full system?

well whatever exhaust you get youll get the same sound no matter what. the boxer motor is the reason for that. i got a wrx catback exhaust for my impreza, its hard to find a catback for n/a imprezas, you can get a stromung exhaust from boxer4racing.com, or you can buy a wrx exhaust like i did but you have to custom weld one of the flanges, other than that its great, easy install, and sounds awesome. if you have any ?'s let me know
