Tsudo 98-05 Impreza 2.5 RS N1 JDM catback exhaust
Fits: 1998-2001 Subaru Impreza 2.2L / 2.5L Naturally Aspirated
Fits: 2002-2005 Subaru Impreza 2.5L Naturally Aspirated
There is no denying that the Subaru Impreza 2.2 Liter and 2.5 Liter is a naturally aspirated wonder of a car. There is always room for improvement though. The OEM stock exhaust restricts the flow from the engine, causing a bottle neck trying to get out, significantly limiting the potential of the Impreza. There is a simple solution to that problem, and it is called the Tsudo Impreza 2.5 RS N1 JDM Catback Exhaust. It is manufactured from the highest quality 100% T-304 stainless steel to prevent corrosion and increase durability. That stainless steel is then CNC machine mandrel bent and given a perforated core. The result of this is a tuned piping that has a smooth free flowing system to give it a straight through, unrestricted path out of the system. This in turn improves horsepower, torque, and throttle response. The performance goes one step further by weighing significantly less than the OEM stock system. When you turn it on you can hear the power waiting under the hood in the form of a low, deep tone. You can hear as your car climbs through the rpms the power that was hidden before.
I ordered this item for a 2004 Impreza TS wagon. It was shipped quickly and was in great shape. It fit perfectly in place and had all the needed hardware. I had a phone contact from ERZ with a question before they shipped. Very good customer service.
I have an 02 Outback Impreza sport and it really sounds amazing. Everything came packaged nicely and the metal was very high quality! Such a deep, rich tone which gives it the classic Subaru rumble. Be ready to make some minor modifications to make it foot perfect. Overall, this product lives up to its reviews. I posted a video of the installed exhaust below:
Paired with the Tsudo uel headers and resonated test pipe. It is insanely loud and not very raspy. Nice low rumble at idle and quickly gets loud around 2.5k rpms. At full throttle it is deafening. No drone on the side streets, or very light drone. Very noticeable drone on the highway, but you'll get used to it.
May be quieter with cats, but if you enjoy a loud exhaust, this is the one for you. Amazing Boxer rumble.
Fitment was off since this was not labeled for a Forester 2002. Some hangers had to be modified and the muffler angled down to clear the bumper. I won't take off stars cause this is made for the Impreza.
I was convinced by the comments, and they were right. this has an amazing sound. this also gave me hope for working on my car. it was so easy to put one once the old exhaust was off. if i could i would buy this again.
Bought this for my 2007 Subaru Impreza Wagon. Installed with a minimum of customization. Sound's really good. Load without the baffle installed but just right with the baffle in place.
