Interested! A few rookie questions though.
Is there a reason this has a flex section? I know other aftermarket ones are solid. Is this better than a sti catless uppipe (does that one have a flex too)?
The flex section is actually a great idea so that it doesn't crack like the solid ones do over time. The factory uppipes actually have a flex section as well to prevent cracking.

IIRC the CFM (how well it flows) is about 50+CFM more so it definitely flows better than a factory catless uppipe. It's definitely a worth while upgrade. I'm choosing to go a different route with my uppipe/exhaust manifold upgrade.

Okay. Doing some reading the grimspeed one is highly reviewed. Do you have gaskets for it? And all the studs are included and in good condition?
Also I’ll need a resistor or something for the EGT right? Since it won’t be used. Do you know anything about that?

I’ll pm you to discuss pricing, shipping.

What route are you choosing to go?

The studs are included, what you see in the pictures is what will be shipped. The studs also look like they're in good shape, just chase the threads/wire brush them to knock off any surface rust but the threads themselves look good. I do not have any gaskets to go along with it.

"What is the CEL fix? 2.2 KOhm 1/2 watt resistor. These are available at Radio Shack and are usually in stock. $1 buys you 6 of them. You place it in the EGT connector, which is the bottom connector just forward of your passenger side strut tower. It only has two holes, so jam one end of the resistor into each. If you do not use this resistor, you will probably end up with the CEL code P0546 = Exhaust Gas Temperature Sensor Circuit Malfunction (High Input). ***NOTE***There are two CEL fixes for the WRX, the other one is the rear CEL code P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold, this code being caused by the lack of a catalytic converter in the downpipe. This is usually fixed with an electrical fix or mechanical fix. This notice, though not important to this thread, acknowledges there are two "CEL fixes" and defines them individually to avoid possible confusion."
