No, it's not that loud...but on the other hand it's not quiet if you get on it.

And thanks lol. I get people asking me why I don't change it now.....I've been SubieChik for almost 10 years I can't change it....it's me

Yup that's what I'm talking about lol. I could do that with little effort in the Legacy. I was tired of constantly worrying about the cops and I got a few tickets. Stressfree now lol

But just loud enough so people that it's noticeable while cruising at like 2k rims
A muffler delete will be much louder. My friend did a muffler delete on his 545i and it thunders on the road (he recently just made it louder going with straight pipes).

I'm thinking of getting full custom straight pipes too, so it'll be even louder. My muffler delete was 300ish with custom welded y pipe to exhaust tips from cats back. However there is a drone at 3k rpm, but I don't mind it as I drive with my music blasting anyways .
Yeah same here lmao, first and second gear, I floor it at like 80% throttle and I hear alarms going off. Yep, getting rid of drone=blasting music LOL!

I've actually wanted a subie since like 3 years ago and it's now one of my future considerations (I've gotten a chance to drive the 2012 WRX and STi). I live in Saratoga which is a really quiet neighborhood and it's hilarious because like you don't hear anyone really on the road and then you hear my exhaust 😂

Is it possible to make the 2.5L V6 to sound like a V8 with a little bit of rasp? I saw this guy's video
and it's basically the exact sound that I want but then I realized that it's a 8 cylinder car. If I were to replace my resonator delete with a x pipe and then go straight pipes all the way back, would that make my 250 sound like that? Thanks!
