My Scooby now sounds like a Scooby!!


Recommended Posts

After finally buying an Impreza which was completely standard, was unusual to hear one that is completely standard! So the quest for making the noise had to start...


Thankfully I have a mate who is quite handy around cars which saved me quite a few pennies!


So the first thing was replacing the panel filter, opted for a pipercross filter... we then set about removing the airbox resonator!! Took a bit of time but we got there and what a big difference! Can hear the air getting sucked in and hear the dump valve, even tho it's a recirc! Result!




Next thing, exhaust!!




No wonder it was quiet, the size of the silencer on the standard exhaust is huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge!! So we managed to pull that off... I opted to go for a Japspeed 4.5" slashed tailpipe... tis very nice looking and not too loud (only back box)




Now I have the classic Subaru burble... I am a very happy man! and it's not too loud so the Mrs is happy as well!!

Nice choice looks good [emoji106]

Same First 3 performance mods I did, watch out though cos it's a slippery slope [emoji39]


Not gonna go mental, will not do anymore until next year probably!! Could do with new front tyres, still tread on them but they are cracking a little so looks like they are just old. Will get that done in the next few weeks...


Next thing I would like to do is get some better discs and pads installed, but like I said will probably be some point next year!!
