Here is a video of my car I made last year. I had posted it somewhere in the forum, but can't find it.

Stock muffler

Nameless 5" muffler

Update.. I installed the downpipe with the stock cat back. It is noticeably louder but not obnoxious. So far I'm happy with it.

Now if you put equal length headers on, it will be as quiet as stock again, if not quieter.

Check out mine with the new Grimmspeed resonated exhaust with a catted Grimmspeed downpipe. This is exactly the sound I was going for. It's not loud at all.

No! I had ELH on my stock catback with Invidia catted downpipe, and it added quite a bit of sound, especially from 2-3k.

Haha there seem to be such mixed opinions. The absolutes make sense (Q300 is quiet / No it's not!!), but the ones with relativity are hard to grasp (you would think everyone would agree that a certain exhaust is either louder or quieter than stock etc.)

Any advice from this crowd for people with the SPT? I like the SPT overall. I would be bugged a lot more by the supposed drone if the car itself wasn't loud as hell at highway speeds anyway. Wind noise is moderate, but tire noise is horrible on anything but brand new tires. But ultimately down the road I'm looking at a downpipe (catted Invidia or Cobb most likely) as well as ELH. Honestly I already paid so much for the SPT (yes I wanted it, but it wouldn't have mattered b.c it came on the car) I wouldn't mind spending $1000+ on something besides another catback. I don't want something loud, I just want a nice sound (as others mentioned, the SPT really only bugs me that it's so loud on cold idle and when trying to creep quietly through the neighborhood).

Well, I guess the brands matter then because mine is noticeably quieter everywhere compared to stock. I have a Grimmspeed limited catted DP and aFe ELH with the stock catback. I ran just the DP for a while and it was a little louder than stock, but the headers quieted it back down.

I had the SPT and absolutely hated the droning. So I replaced it with the Nameless mufflerless catback, which sounds epic and somehow got rid of the drone, but there's plenty of volume. If I had to do it again, I would've gone with the 5-inch mufflers to quiet the volume down. Seriously, the Nameless made me regret going through 2 Subarus with the SPT.

Lucky you.

Did the welds on your Milltek also look like these? These welds aren't fitting for a $3600 TB system. Plus, I also had fitment issues. I ended up needing to customize the exhaust hangers to get them to fit correctly.
