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.)

*** Please note the blue tips will fade over time. This is common on all blue tipped exhaust systems ***
I have the non resonated muffled catback with stealth tips and it sounds great. I did need to add some washers to the bolts as they were a touch too long. Outside of that it’s been great and just the right sound to hear but not attract attention.
I bought the system before even owning the car I had that much faith in ETS. 😁 when I got the car I put 500 miles on the car and threw on the catback( no res) and it opened the car right up, she did NOT want to stay tame during the break in period. But I have about 1500 miles on the car now and I have to say I absolutely love every sound my car makes now. 😍
In love with the catback system. Build quality is impeccable. Sound levels are perfect. Deep idle and growl. Under acceleration the sound is smooth and deep. I get a sense of increased throttle response and a smoother delivery of power. No drone, no fitment issues, no complaints! ETS went above and beyond with their customer support as well.
Thanks for the pictures! Glad to hear that you're enjoying the parts so far!
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
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.
