Hangers just shipped. Exactly one month after ordering. I did get in contact with Nengun advising them about the possible influx on hanger orders since this thread is gaining popularity. I suspect it will make its way to FB groups which will blow it out of proportion. So I suggested to make preparations for that. They responded thanking me for the heads up, and said that they are making preparations for it.

So far in every day driving it's not earth shattering but there seems to be a difference with windows up. Have not yet had a chance to test on freeway driving up a hill or just cruising

Would you get it again or not worth the money?

Let me see how it is on the freeway going up hill. That's really the key

Just saw the OEM Subaru Muffler Cushion part # 44066AJ010 for $6.00 on Nengun's website. Is it the same part # for all the hangers or are the different?
Just wanted to double check before ordering.

Received the hangers yesterday from Nengun. Shipping took about a month, and delivery 3 days. Only had time to install 4 out of the 5.
This stuff does work, it's almost mind-blowing. I wasn't expecting a reduction in exhaust sound but I did want to get rid of cabin vibration, and I wasn't disappointed. Cabin vibration went down by 70% imo. Maybe installing the 5th behind the catback can help improve the reduction of cabin vibration / drone.

For any newcomers, this will not reduce exhaust tone/rasp/noise, it reduces the cabin vibration/drone. To put in perspective, I have catted UEL headers, double resonated FP, this should make for a quiet exhaust, then an HKS Spec-L which is definitely much louder than a Q300, TRD, R400.

So now I have a deep-aggresive-growling exhaust with zero rasp, and a comfortable cabin drone. I'll the boss lady be the judge of it.

Is it worth replacing the OEM exhaust hangers with JDM after waiting a month. Yes. Not only are they cheap ($6 each), but it is proven to work. If I purchase something for cheap my way of thinking is; If it works, its a win, it was cheap. If it doesn't work, it's still a win because it was cheap.

Would I recommend replacing just 2, 4, or all 5. I would say send it. Do them all. But that's just a personal opinion. You can start with 2 or 3 and then make your way up. Just be wary of the long shipping times.

Thank you OP, great discovery. Cheers.
