I would assume that it is real. This exhaust is shown in the STi Accessory Catalog for the JDM BRZ.

Symbiont 07-10-2012 06:44 PM

That looks... very familiar. ;)

Bg8780 07-10-2012 11:48 PM

Looks great but sounds pretty close to stock.

Praetendere 07-11-2012 12:05 AM

I think that's the best sounding exhaust I've heard so far.

So STI supports breast cancer awareness?

Cherry red (pink) has been the STI color since forever.

I know I know...

The better answer would have been; "Yes, rice, Subaru loves breasts just as much as you do..." :D

blu_ 07-11-2012 02:44 PM

If they bring it here, it will be a lot cheaper, I assume.

Turbowned 07-11-2012 02:56 PM

$1,800 and according to the Speedhunters article, adds no horsepower. NEXT!

Bg8780 07-11-2012 03:16 PM

I think the Nameless Performance kit is looking the best to me so far. But this car is still very young and I'm sticking with the stock exhaust for awhile to get a feel for the car the way Toyobaru wants me to. Of course not forever though. :-)

Pretty standard for Subie exhausts. My JDM Sport axleback was one of 3 in the states, was 1300 new. Guy that sold it to me upgraded to the Ti version, which was 1900 new. For an axleback.

And I didn't make up the S.f.B. thing. :P Look it up!

Thanks for these links. I sure like the way it looks plus its OEM/factory. Sounds good. Maybe someone can get a better video and sound recording of this system.

It is pricey but compare it to the Ackropovic mufllers/pipe that I have on my KTM Superduke at $1600.00:confused0068:

Turbowned 07-12-2012 03:27 PM

I love the way it looks and sounds but if it really doesn't increase power, what's the point? Is it a full cat-back or just an axle-back?

xwd 07-12-2012 03:30 PM

I think it's just an axleback.

All STi stuff is expensive, if people haven't noticed by now.

I still hear the chirping/crickets, lol:)

switchlanez 07-13-2012 01:31 AM

Maybe the price is steep because it looks like it has one individual muffler per tip and likely has a resonator and silencer (more parts to deteriorate depending on what it's made of).

It's also got STI markup AND JDM markup. Always high-quality pieces...always expensive.

Yeah. What's strange is the MSRP on the STI website says around $2000 (or $2100-$2200 after tax). Japanparts is selling for a bit over $1800 which should still be below $2k after shipping.

As an alternative, I'd consider the Greddy SP Elite exhaust which has a very similarly cut tip, doesn't have a resonator/silencer (less pieces to deteriorate), and claims HP: +2.7hp TQ: +4 ft/lb gains for 3 to 4 hundred bucks. Should look less ricey with a 102mm (or 4") tip vs 120mm (or 4.7") on the STI (though they look similarly sized; not sure if they are inner diameter or outer diameter specs). For reference the OEM JDM tips are 86mm (or 3.4").

Should be a good combo with the OEM-looking Takeda CAI which will also be badged as Greddy.

I simply skip out on JDM goodies; they're often too expensive for what they are. Well, except that STI lip I'm going to order soon...

PMok 07-13-2012 02:17 AM

I couldn't help but look at that under diffuser part in the pics/video, and think again, $800? For that piece of plastic? Really?

Slightly OT but looks like the STI front lip will be complemented with side skirts that are coming out soon. That $800 rear diffuser would finish the look. http://www.sti.jp/parts/catalogue/brz_zc6/4.html The 3rd grayed out item translates to:

Side under spoiler
In development

Turbowned 07-13-2012 11:00 AM

Ooh, that would be nice! C'mon side skirts! Those, the front lip and rear diffuser would be all I'd need for the exterior of the BRZ :)

OrbitalEllipses 07-13-2012 11:21 AM

The front lip is subtle enough for me to not want skirts or that horrendously overpriced rear diffuser. Though I do think the TRD duckbill's in my future.

thermobox 07-13-2012 11:40 AM

The side rails will be the same add-on that is available for the current GV,GR and even the GJ's.
The front, side and rear will all compliment each other.

raphymartinez 07-13-2012 12:52 PM

um really?..... that's it? Pass

These overpriced bits?

thermobox 07-13-2012 02:52 PM

Yeppers. Kinda bugs me though. Because the BRZ doesn't have any existing side rails for these to bolt to. So for me it will look kind of unfinished. That's why I'm more geared towards the TRD side rails.
