I rode in an STI a few weeks ago that had a 3 inch exhaust from the header back with no resonator, cat, or muffler. and it was deep and rumbly and sounded amazing. I would like something as close to that as i can get.
what would it sound like with the svt header, and 2.75" flex and pipe all the way back?

what would you guys suggest?

Personally coming from the subaru world, nothing can sound like a Subaru other than a Subaru. No cat on our cars is very loud and raspy in the higher RPMs. Take my word cause thats my setup.

Now maybe if you kept the cat and went with a borla, thats probably as deep as you can get.

Borla sounds amazing on all foci, especially svt's.
If you want a borla for cheaper go with trubendz.

I have the 2.5" Borla, SVT header, RT Cat, 2.5" flex, no resonator and it sounds just like what you are looking for. It's got a nice deep tone but is loud wen you rev it up or get on the pedal. Not raspy at all. Oh yeah na dI got it from Trubendz as well.

I got me some Borla. It just sounds the best a 4 banger can sound. "SVT" n/a. I like it.

My car has a 3" Magnaflow with a resonator and its a very deep tone for a 4 cylinder. I will see if I can get some audio of my car so I can show everyone.

thanks everyone. i know that its not ever going to sound like a subie because nothing does but a subie. but I will look into the borla/trubendz.

Subies have the sweetest 4 cylinder sound.. But they are Flat 4s so the only way to get that sound is to disconnect a spark plug.. LOL...
Borla or HKS has a nice low sound

I've got an ORP,Borla center exit and I love it. When I cruising down the highway it sounds deep and mean. When I'm on it....It gets loud and clear. Shifting a little early give gives it the low grumble your looking for, downshifting with rev match makes a little cackle, but a deep rumble more than a cackle. If you want, I can record some sound for you and let you hear it. Maybe even do a couple of high speed passes !!!!
