NY: SG specific OBX exhaust ($250)

Hey folks, been doing some experimenting with exhaust systems and this is one I did not like. OBX SG specific exhaust, single tip and resonated. Its a little dirty and has some pitting, but it is nice and solid. There is no rot, scrapes or leaks. Had a nice tone prior to going stage 2 but now I am not too fond of it.

Exhaust fitment question

Hello, do you think the exhaust would line up with a 2001 forester with a manual transmission? Ive just super charged my fozzie and added a UEL header and TSUDO high flow cat mid pipe. Right now I have the stock pipe on and it sounds like a rat farting in a tin can LOL. I really dont know what diameter pipe will be best for my setup but this seems like it might be a good start. I am definitely not looking for something that will drone.

What about the tone are you not fond of?
Honestly it was too loud, I ended up getting a GD cobb unit fabbed up to my forester. Might have something due to the large round canister design and bigger tip vs the oval on the cobb unit.

Hi Jimmy, I honestly don't know if it will fit your SF chassis. Personally this exhaust was loud on my car after adding a catted downpipe, even with the stock headers. But I am conservative and like my ride quiet when tooling around, lots of patrolling and ticketing where I live on Long Island. If you're looking for a deeper tone I think the canister design will help, especially with the resonator. Once again just speculation though.

I wish it wasn't so loud, the cops on LI really frown on that kinda stuff. If that's your car in your profile I think I saw it on 231 a few weeks back. Looks amazing. Any chance you have a video of how it sounds?

Thanks man I appreciate it, shes nothing fancy just been trying to bring her up to sti levels for a nice daily driver. Unfortunately I never took any clips of the OBX exhaust. Switched up two or so days after getting the DP and tune.

exhaust.

K3vlar, I gotcha too loud! Drag! prob with my setup it would be too much also. Im looking for the deep tone not too loud till you are in it. Im still waiting for the tuners to call me to come pick my car up. I def wont have the power you are getting with your setup. I beleive the raptor V is what I want though, low end to help with the steep mountain roads.Im like 2 3/4 lift, skid plates and a shape of a toaster
def not the track star! I thank u for your reply. sorry it took me so long to get back to you, ive been off this week and enjoying the 70-80 degree weather here in NC!
