This midpipe converts your ETS axleback to a catback exhaust if you have a 2-Bolt Rear Connection.
This midpipe will also work with the OEM axlebacks if you want to leave the stock rear section!
Ordered due to drone from muffled axle back being bad. The resonated midpipe makes a world of difference. Should’ve gone catback from the start. Only wish I had the resonated midpipes with non-muffled axle back now because resonated and muffled is a little quieter than I’d like it to be but the drone is definitely better than it was with just the axle back.
The addtion of the resonated mid pipe took away 90% of the drone I was getting from the muffled axleback during cruising. The tone is deeper but it still pops nicely letting off at high rpm. Easy install, and top quality construction.
I ended up going with this after the ETS axleback had a little much drone for me just by itself. Sounds amazing now.
Great upgrade. Initially had the axle back on without the mid pipe and it was a little louder than I expected. I added the mid pipe with the resonator and it made the exhaust note just perfect plus a deeper tone. Highly recommend !
22 WRX looks and sounds great. Would recommend getting built in resonator to keep it from being too aggressive.
Super happy I’m glad I bought a high quality exhaust never own … I highly recommend people own 2022 Suburu wrx.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
How does the exhaust sound with a resonator mid pipe and axle back with no mufflers? I have the non muffled axle back already and cannot decide if I want the resonator or not and cannot find a video anywhere with that setup with sound clips.

will this work with the sti exhaust mufflers
Yes! This midpipe bolts up in exactly the same footprint as the OEM midpipe and can be used with the OEM Mufflers or the 'STI Performance' Mufflers.
Will the resonator delete cause a loss of power due to back pressure changes on the Catalytic converter? And will it throw a check engine light?
There hasn't been any evidence to suggest that the vehicle would lose power from removing the factory resonator - Low Boost Performance actually gained 12whp and 16wtq over the factory exhaust with no other modifications or tuning (https://fb.watch/eWwLWx80QJ/)
There are no sensors on the rear section of the exhaust past the downpipe, this catback will not cause any CELs to arise.
