Wow what an idiot (the guy selling rejects)

What about tsudo or even 1320 performance. They come with a mid pipe at a really cheap price. Do you have any knowledge about them?.

What about the exhaust smell? Is it bad with ofh? It seems like the best option so far. But gruppie seems solid, their price is great!

You have a lot of reading to do! There is a TON of information on here if you just go look for it. For example, this thread contains some interesting header discussion: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=115389

FYI: it goes Header(w/cat)-->overpipe-->front pipe(w/cat)-->midpipe-->muffler & tips.

Axelback replaces only the muffler & tips, Cat back replaces midpipe and muffler & tips.

If I were you, I would consider the Tomei UEL or Open Flash UEL w/overpipe.

DUDE THANK YOU! That's what I've always wanted. A diagram (kinda) on what goes first: Header(w/cat)-->overpipe-->front pipe(w/cat)-->midpipe-->muffler & tips.


My exhaust is a cat back though. So the res goes after muffler or after the mid pipe or does it replace the mid pipe?

Again dude, thank you I seriously appreciate that.

I just found a diagram, thanks man

I recently added a UEL OFH, using stock over and front pipe with an MXP comp RS cat back. The quality seemed really good. Fit was perfect, install was easy. Sound is much more aggressive and I'm loving the classic subi rumble of the UEL, I personally feel my setup drones on the highway pretty bad, I have to talk loud to have a conversation, it doesn't bother me but the GF complains lol.. Definitely notice the power difference.. I think for the price of OFH you can't go wrong.. I had a Tomei EL on my STI and that was also a nice piece..

Unless you are FI an intake won't really make a difference, unmodified stock intake with a drop in filter will give you 99% of a really expensive intake setup if you're NA.

Hey thanks for your reply! I already have an injen intake though that's why I'm asking. I bought the car used with it

yes for best results you will need to sale the maf sensor to suit the injen intake. If its the one where the maf sensor is rearly close to the throttle body they can be a bit troublesome due turbulance as you open throttle.

see the co loured links below, you might need to use normal browser i dont think the links show up on tapatalk

It's a lot more than an ofh but I'm guessing a non coated version will be less.

By the way, nice frs!! 👍🏻
