Yup, exactly how my old setup was haha.

I currently have HKS + Invidia and was debating removing the resonator but not anymore

Nobody makes midpipes for the AWD and the RWD one will not fit

Anyone have the answer to why it doesn't fit? I can't see any reason why it wouldn't. It looks like it follows the same path as the stock exhaust.

PERFECT IS250 AWD Exhaust Setup - ZERO Drone, Deep Tone

After struggling for weeks tinkering with my exhaust trying to produce a no drone deep true V6 sound I finally hit the mark.

Stage 1: F-Sport Axle Back (By itself = too much drone, too high pitched for the cabin of a luxury car DD)

Stage 2: Removed secondary cats - Replaced them with Vibrant 12" Bottle Resonators (More flow and more of a rifling V6 sound but still a lot of drone between 2500-3000)

Stage 3: Game changer - Replaced the single stock muffler resonator with a straight through 14" long 6" across Magnaflow muffler (3 mufflers in total you say? YES!)

The result is the way luxury sport sedan should sound. If you have a girlfriend, wife, kids or are just over the high pitched annoying exhaust bit. Do what I have done. Don't think about it, just do it.

Wrong thread, but since you're new I'll throw you a bone.

Joe-Z intake Pipe with F-sport air box or the DIY mod, very popular among the CL crowd. Best bang for buck. Use the search, you will find lots on this.

Just installed my new exhaust on wednesday. Greddy Spectrum Elite, Invidia Midpipe and Injen Short Ram. I could not be more happy with the quality of sound this setup produces. I'll try and attach the videos I took while my husband drove by later but the video doesn't do it justice at all. It sounds amazing in person. This exhaust note is a complete 180 from the Subaru boxer sound I'm used to and love.

Wondering if anyone had an opinion on the Megan catback exhaust? I've seen a few videos and I like the sound of the Megan system. Also, is there a big difference between the catback and axleback? Is it worth the extra $$ to do the full system? Thanks.

Does this set up work on a IS350 rwd?
