1998 Forester L 5MT
Just had my header installed and I'm not hearing any boxer rumble yet. Should I just have the resonator removed from my STi catback?
"Too loud" is subjective. No muffler at all would be too loud to me, but whether or not its too loud for you, only you will know. Definitely will save you a lot of money if you don't mind the sound.Cool, I'm going to look into the mufflers. Another idea... I used to run this on my 900 Turbo. How about a 2.5" axleback with no muffler? Would that be just way too loud? Definitely worth considering. Worked great on the Saab, wasn't too loud, good tone. If I get my boxer rumble that way, it'll save some serious money.
link doesn't work.. are you talking about an EL header? because in that case it definitely will kill the rumble.its not the muffler...its the headers....
had a set on my sti with a perrin catbackand cobb downpipe. when i put the headers on i lost a LOT of the rumble... put the stock ones on, sound came back. theres a writeup on nasioc ( i know im sorry) somewhere about this.
ps: this was on a turbo motor..
heres the link for the search...NASIOC
sorry to keep editing: search on rs25.com... LOTS of good N/A info there on 2.5s
Awesome. Who was the seller? Link? ThanksOrdered up a MagnaFlow #12226. Only 70 bucks shipped, buy-it-now on eBay. Oval, stainless, and straight through. No baffles or anything. Had it installed this morning, with my old STI tip put back on it, and then I spray-painted the tip with high-temp flat black. The car sounds really great, exactly what I was hoping for. Very rumbly. I'll see if I can post some picture tomorrow.
