The ETS Cat-back exhaust for the new '22+ 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 in Polished, Anodized, or Stealth Black finish
Extreme - Non Resonated:
Muffled - Resonated:
*** Please note the blue tips will fade over time. This is common on all blue tipped exhaust systems ***
Was really worried about which exhaust to get, the install was super easy and love the sound. Loud enough to hear, but not to be annoying! Sounds perfect.
After buying this project WRX, I found myself drawn to the ETS catback exhaust. I wasn’t sure about non resonated as it might be too loud on the road when driving. I pulled the trigger on it and I’m glad that I did. The whole look under the car and the exhaust sound. They go hand in hand and it’s such a night and day difference from the stock exhaust system. I went with the blue exhaust tips, they have a great look to them and it’s definitely a focal point on the back of the car. Overall very impressed with the fast shipping, packaging and quality of the exhaust.
I went with the extreme exhaust with no resonator because I do love my exhaust noise to be loud, but I was worried it may be too loud all around. To my surprise it isn’t all that loud at cruising speed but I love the sounds of this exhaust at WOT. This exhaust paired with the ETS intake, I could really tell a good gain with these two parts installed. What a great product!
Install went pretty easy, the system looks good on the car. Has a nice rumble to it and roars when you hit the throttle. It is a bit loud on cold start, but that was to be expected. Driving around is a blast, great tones. The craftsmanship on the exhaust is excellent, great welds and all the hardware worked perfect. I purchased the resonated with no mufflers.
Love this exhaust! Tips were perfect. Sound is perfect! Can’t wait for the J-pipe and intake. ETS rocks!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
Any update on if the catback muffled with resonator system will fit the ‘22 WRX GT?
There shouldn't be any reason why this won't fit on an automatic, we just haven't had one in for test fitting. For context, the 15-21 WRX fit just fine at the catback, the CVT caused an issue with the j-pipe fitment.
the non muffled and non resonated cat back system will not cause a CEL(check engine light) correct? Also with the black stealth tips, I've had problems in the past with other brands having the paint chip or peel over time, how do they hold up? And last question although I'm sure you guys would include in the description, but this system does not need a tune correct?
Catbacks and Axlebacks are post catalytic converter (hence CATback) and do not require any tune for proper operation, nor will it cause a CEL to trigger. We use Cerakote on the exhaust tips, which has proven to hold up well to the elements, abrasions, and fading.
I just ordered my 2022 WRX Limited with STI performance mufflers. Can I use these mufflers with your catback exhaust system?
Negative, you're going to want to purchase the axleback midpipe if you would like to keep the "STI" Mufflers. Our catback exhaust has 3" V-Band flanges at the rear instead of the 2-Bolt Flanges.

Will this be compatible with the cvt transmission?
We have not test fit on a WRX equipped with a CVT. On the previous generation the catback was not impacted by the transmission, only the J-Pipe section was incompatible.
How loud is this exhaust in decibels?
Subispeed put together a great video with DB readings. Here is the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43t9r1g7KtA
Does the cat back fit the 22 WRX wagon?
This will not fit the WRX Sportswagon, the exhaust flange location and routing is different from the Sedan. We haven't seen the Sportswagon in the US yet, so there isn't any kind of ETA for us developing a catback on one at this time unfortunately.
I previously asked if the was "Any update on if the catback muffled with resonator system will fit the ‘22 WRX GT (w SPT/CVT)?" To follow up, I can now confirm that the catback muffled with resonator system did fit the ‘22 WRX GT with no issues. It sounds great! Thank you.
Thank you for your feedback! The CVT transmission really should only cause a fitment concern with the J-Pipe due to the shape and mounting bracket location.
I just received my catback exhaust(resonated muffler delete) for my 22 WRX. There are 3 gaskets and I need to know the proper gasket arrangement from J-pipe to mid pipe. Thanks in advance.
The gaskets should be in the following order (in direction of flow)
-Graphite gasket w/ 2.5" center diameter
-Stainless adapter plate
-Multilayer Vibrant 3" gasket
