5 stars does not do this exhaust justice. The sound of this thing is absolutely fantastic and with the resonator the cabin noise was improved drastically over stock while improving the tone.
Just got finished putting this on and it really is a thing of beauty. If you are like me and were torn between this and the extreme I would go with the quiet. A lot of videos I watched initially of guys with the extreme mentioned in the comments section that they switched to the quiet after a while due to how loud it was. As far as volume I would say it is a bit louder than stock but what is vastly more important, at least in my humble opinion, is the tone. It sounds like a predator, quiet when needed but an absolute animal when on the attack. I feel with an aftermarket downpipe the volume will increase slightly and make it that much better. Only wish ETS made a catted DP for the STI as I will be purchasing their air intake, headers and FMIC with titanium kit when i save up a bit.
Excellent craftsmanship and customer service. Great job ETS and thank you
I love my new exhaust. It was the best decision i made. i can finally hear the famous subi rumble. every time i turn on my car i fall in love all over again.
i was looking for a loud exhaust and i found it with ets. thank you !
Great exhaust i love it and high quality
amazing sound, i got the quiet with reaonator, and its the perfect noise level. Install is super easy mating up to a aftermarket downpipe with 1 flange + gasket (supplied gasket and hardware) and 3 v-band clamps that do NOT requier gaskets, which is AMAZING. And you have the option to get the extreme v-banded axle backs later if you want it really loud. 10/10 would buy again
I got the muffled exhaust and it sounds amazing!!! Very easy to install although it would have been nice to have instructions just to be sure.
I cannot say how much I love this intake and exhaust! Super easy to install minus the 2 million clips to take off the plastic. Love the fact I can hear my stock baby turbo while idling. Mark was super helpful anytime I emailed him. I will definitely be back for my front mount and when I upgrade turbos.
The ETS Cat-back exhaust for the 2015-2018 WRX is a made right here in our facility. This exhaust features a true 3.0 all the way through mid-pipe that connects to the rear section splitting into two 3" pipes and finished off with quad 3.5" tips. We use V-band connections on all connections (except the factory 2 bolt) for a leak proof seal (no gaskets to blow out or replace!).
- True 3.0" All The Way From Mating Flange To Muffler Tips (adapter included to fit stock downpipe if needed)
- V-Band Connections For a Leak Proof Seal
- Quad 3.5" Double Wall SS Tips
- 41lbs (10lbs €“ midpipe, 7lbs €“ y-pipe, 24lbs axle back)
*** Please note the blue tips will fade over time. This is common on all blue tipped exhaust systems.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Does this fit on 2019 wrx?
The catback does fit all 15+ WRXs.
I have your ets extreme with res on my 16 sti and was looking to get the next one down? Just the tips tho? With mufflers. Was wonder what my options are
If you want to add mufflers to your current catback this is what you will need
Hey, do you guys offer sponsorships or military discounts?
Here is a link to our military discount - https://www.extremeturbosystems.com/pages/ets-military-discount
Does the ETS mid/y-pipe connect directly to the factory down pipe or do I need adapters?
Yes, we designed our catback to be a factory replacement. You will need 3" gasket.
What is the size of the exhaust tip? 3 or 3.5?
3.5" Quad tips!
Will I get a HP gain? If so, how much?
You will see a power gain when matched with a quality tune. How much is really dependent on the tune.
With this mate with the Cobb downpipe?
Yes it will
Will this ETS CATBACK work with the INVIDIA CATLESS DOWNPIPE?
Yes, it will
I was wondering if the ETS SUBARU WRX/STI 2015+ CATBACK EXHAUST SYSTEM fit a 2019
The catbacks do fit the 19+
Will this fit the 2020 STI as well?
We haven't had confirmed fitment on the 2020 yet but it should as I don't think they made any significan't changes to the bumper or chassis.
Is there anyways to just purchase the axle back muffler portion? I have an ets y and mid pipe and looking to get the mufflers
Yes we list the rear section of the catback in the exhaust section of our website.
one of my clamps fell off of my WRX 2018, is there a way I could get a replacement?
Yes, we have the T-Bolt clamps available separate on our website.
Is this legal for street use? What’s the current decimal levels?
This is for offroad use. There are a lot of variants that dictate volume
Which combination do you recommend to avoid drone? Car is a 2019 STI and sees a lot of road trips.
Resonators and mufflers are a must then!
Will the full exhaust system fit the 2019 Subaru wrx sti , and if so will it need a tune ?
The catback will bolt straight up. No tune needed if the cat remains in place.
Do you guys offer military discount? If so how do i go about getting it on my order
I'm considering both your j-pipe and catback exhaust for my 2017 WRX. Have you considered offering both as a turbo back system with the 2-bolt flange replaced with a v-band? With all the other connections being v-bands, it would be great to eliminate that last bolted/gasketed connection.
We use the 2-bolt to make sure our Jpipe can pair with a stock catback, and our catback can pair with a stock Jpipe. If you purchase both of those parts it would be considered a "turbo back system.
Do i need a separate adapter to bolt this cat back on to my stock Sti downpipe?
https://www.extremeturbosystems.com/collections/15-19-sti-exhaust-systems/products/grimmspeed-subaru-downpipe-to-3in-catback-adapter This is what you are looking for.
Do the tips only come double wall? Really wanna run a full ETS J-Pipe to Catback/Turboback, but don’t like double walled tips.
We only do the double wall on the Subaru exhausts.
Compatible with 2019 sti ?
Yes, the catback is.
Will this exhaust require a tune? Can I run it with no issues after install?
No tune required if the factory catalytic converter remains in place. To really benefit from it, we do suggest getting the tune.
is the exhaust full titanium and how much will the hp increase?
The exhaust is Stainless Steel.
I have a ETS full cat-back on my 2017 wrx with mufflers and I am looking to see if I can buy just the axel-back portion to get rid of the mufflers. Is that something I can do or do I have to buy the full new cat-back?
Sounds great but will this increase my hp? I currently have stock exhaust.
Absolutely, anytime you can free up exhaust flow in a turbo car you are going to have better spool and be able to make power easier.
What is the difference in the ETS Catback Extreme with resonator and without? Which is more loud?
Volume difference will be minimal, though the resonated is likely quieter. The resonator really just helps to reduce freeway droning.
