Great! Grab a tune while you're at it or you'll get a check engine light and be leaving some power on the table.

Might as well get an over pipe while you are at it? It goes between the header and front pipe.

Any suggestion on the over pipe for FR-S Release 1.0 (Brand/Quality/Overall performance)?

Congratulations on the buy! Any pictures yet? For what it's worth, aside your catback section, the rest of the exhaust fits identically; so when searching for parts, you can interchange BRZ/FRS and not look for the release model specifically.

For tuning, it may be easiest to buy an open flash tablet. Plug it in, flash the map, drive. Lets you monitor data in real time and there are tuners who can give you custom maps for whatever you do in the future

I say go with the Tomei and their overpipe if you like them. But also maybe consider the OpenFlash tablet to take advantage of the tune so you won't be running lean.

These are good pieces on the back end. You can get Gruppe-S uel with overpipe for the price of the Tomei (basically same design and quality). Whatever you choose stock over pipe is tiny so getting one is a must. I had HKS Dual Resonated FP with HKS legamax, sound was great


If money is a concern I would get the OFT as others have said in place of the trd catback. OFT and UEL will bring the car alive
