2011 WRX exhaust too loud. Options?

Postby plasmid » Mon Jul 03, 2017 10:44 pm

Hello.

Long time lurker first time poster.

I have a 2011WRX sedan. I have a full TBE (down pipe with high flow cat) with an Invidia Q300.

I have a stage 2 tune.

Unfortunately my new neighbours have complained about the early cold starts in the morning!

I'm looking for an easy (cheaper) option to quiten down a bit. I thought the easiest option might be to install a resonator. Not sure what that does to the tune though.

Any advice is appreciate it.

Cheers.

Put a resonator on.. Will quieten it down without affecting performance.. A quiet fast car is more fun than a noisy fast car...unless you are attention seeking...

Hey Delivan,

Thanks for your response.

I presume this is fairly easy for an exhaust shop to fit?

I presume it'll be somewhere just after the cat?

Yes.. It is basically just an empty expansion chamber that looks like a hotdog muffler maybe 110mm in diameter and 600mm long. Quick and easy to install .
