    Yeah theres no plan to do the up pipe yet. But if I do, I figure Ill do the headers at the same time.

    I ended up putting the exhaust on today. Its not too bad for $100. Its definately a bit loud for my liking, but ill give it a week of driving to work to see what I think.
    If its crap Ill put the stock rear muffler back on next weekend.

    The car feels a bit less laggy now though which is good.

    You can also see the cheap BOV ive hooked up. The car came with a super loud GFB one, so I bought a cheap chinese hks copy and welded a pipe to make a plumb back ssqv. Its not too loud and sounds better than a stock one.

    Also, excuse the number plates. They came with the car, and the RMS wants me to pay an ordering fee to go back to normal plates. So im gonna keep these till rego next year...lol

    Im after a set of those rims for my forester. Back when I didn't like them people couldn't give them away. Now people want 200 for a set and im still to stingy to cough up that for them lol

    you need to lowball. These were up for $250, I offered the guy $150 and took them.

    I still have the old wheels if u want them. They make good paper weights or door stops...

    Well the exhaust is definately too loud.

    Ive chopped the stock muffler, it will have a 3" inlet with the stock twin outlets going into 2x2" tips to look a bit better.

    Ill fit it up this weekend, should hopefully sound stock again.

    Get some equal length headers if you can. Makes it sound heaps better

    Yeah I heard one with proper headers the other day. It sounded much better.

    For now Ive put the stock rear muffler back on. Ill see what thats like to drive after dinner, really I dont need more performance, Im happy to not have a headache when I get home from work.

    Key word here is proper, need to be very careful with selection of headers for these, cheap ones will make you lag like a slut on acid, and the good shit are pricey. Imo if youre gonna do headers, may as well go a full twin scroll set up, and love life.

    Well the stock muffler is much better now. It still feels rather pokey to drive. I could probably get rid of the centre resonator now, but im really over exhaust mods for now.

    Ill chuck a pic or two up later on

    haha nah not yet...

    heres the muffler. Chopped inlet and 3" pipe added. The new inlet partly goes through the normal baffles and partly goes straight out the tips. Keeps its quiet but doesnt feel restrictive.
