Anyone have one on their ‘19 yet?
Wondering what it sounds like. Would love a bit more sound but now willing to put up with any drone.

$325 is a lot of money for just a new muffler and tip. I would suggest going to a local exhaust shop. They could install a new muffler and tip much less expensive. Plus a local shop can help get the sound you want and if there is a problem, they can easily fix it for you.

I mounted one. I had dual magnaflows on my 09 Foz and it was a drone. Hard to hear conversations a t high speed. This is not the case with the Lechute muffler. It has a great balance with having a moderate performance sound, but still quieter than magnaflows.

I like it. You can check out some photos and specs in my journal page. Page 4. https://www.subaruforester.org/vbul...ester-sport-let-modz-begin-792005/index4.html

Sorry, I tried but videos would not post. The LeChute website has a video. I would add that it is louder, but not too loud. The perfect performance sound. You can go to the muffler shop, but this is a DIY option that is bolt on with no injury to your original muffler, so you can put it back on if you don't like the LeChute. The muffler shop will likely hack it off and weld on a new muffler, making it irreversible.

I could you try to repost again the LP exhaust from the interior? I'm debating over this one or the new nameless dual chamber exhaust. I realize this post is old...

I just bought one 2 weeks ago. It sounded alright when in Sport+ mode and flooring the throttle. Outside of that, I thought it sounded pretty bad. I think it's due to the CVT. I also noticed that there was a drone around 1,700rpm and whatever frequency it output really started to hurt my ears and give me a headache. I took it off after 3 days. I was debating whether or not to get the dual chamber, but went with the LP Adventure because it had pretty good reviews and was cheaper.

Did you happen to make a video of it?

I don't. There's some other thread in this forum where someone's posted a video. You can't really get a good sense of the exhaust noise unless it's in person.
Could you post the url on this post for it. Bc I’ve been looking ..

Could you post some videos of the exhaust under normal load and also from the interior?
