Can anyone advise on the correct perfomance decat and centre pipes for an 05 2.5 XT to compliment my H & S Back Box. I know I can get new ones from H & S but lots of 2nd hand Scooby new age ones seem to sell on Evilbay for about £40 -£50. However various sites list 2 different applications for pre 05 and post 05 yet the pipes look identical.
Anyone have any expreience of fitting the Impreza poipes to the Foz.

Cheers

Rob

I think the different listing is that for MY06 onwards the impreza went 2.5L.

Looking on the database the MY06 Impreza and MY06 Forester XT have the same "down" pipe, same "2nd cat" pipe and "centre" pipe.

However with the MY05XT, the "down" pipe and "2nd cat" are the same, the "centre" pipe is different (probably the size of the resonator chamber).

The 'silencer' got bigger at 06, they will interchange physically.

The ->05 centre is straight through with a resonator and you gain no performance with a 'performance' part, just noise, the 06 onwards part is a proper silencer and is restrictive.
