I did that before routing into the downpipe. Honestly, it sounded okay. Was quite a bit quieter, but made the noise sound even more strange. I would recommend routing it back into the downpipe over an additional muffler.

If noise is an issue then yeah i would say have it plumbed back into the down pipe. I blieve the tiny muffler you guys are talking about is called a "super trapp"

Surely - and they are adjustable - not that I've ever owned one.

IMHO, to justify its' price, the S209 needs to perform at least as well as my moderately powered 05 built beater, and even that might not convince me to buy one cause my next STI isn't likely to be moderately powered.

Are you sure you're not mixing up EWG and Blow Off Valves? They don't sound the same at all....



OP, I went with the EWG on the stock turbo because when I went Stage 2 with intake and EBCS, I had boost creep issues and overboosting in the winter months (summer months too, but not as bad). The EWG eliminated both entirely.

You could use something like this too: SuperTrapp Diffuser Disc Packs 344-1705 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

I bought one of them. I never installed it though, still sitting in my parts bin. The open dump really isn't as loud as people make it out to be. My wife or son don't mind it all.
