Thanks!
I`m wondering if I should just post the full video I made of the whole car. The camera shots didn`t come out as well as I wanted them too, but maybe i`ll post it anyways later.

Sounds awesome!

So if you are going catless how you gonna pass smog? Also, do you think you are still within legal noise limits?

I have been thinking about COBB stage 2 but am a bit concerned with noise levels and passing smog. Anyone know if COBB catted TBE will pass smog check? Also, is it withing legal sound limits or not?

I really do not want to have to remove their exhaust just to pass smog. I wonder if running different maps would help one pass smog. Say a stock or valley map to lower emissions. They should really come up with a safe map just for smogging.

nice video. How is the droning when you just cruise?
There is virtually no droning on the freeway. I drive back and forth from Bakersfield to Irvine (2hr drive) and the exhaust isn`t annoying at all. It's noticeable, but not to the point where it bothers me. I couldn`t stand being in a car with drone for extended periods of time. I honestly think this is they way the car should of came sounding stock. A mean car like the STi needs a nice growl to go with it!

Congrats! You`ll love it, although I think the catless may be a little bit louder.

Thanks, well IrvinePD is notorious for pulling people over for aftermarket exhaust and I haven`t had 1 problem yet. I`ve even had like 2 cop cars behind me while I was driving. As far as smog, I don`t have to worry about that for a couple years, but if I still just have exhaust by then it's a relatively easy install and I kept my stock DP and CBE.
As far as smogging goes there is no gaurantee that you`ll pass with the COBB (or any aftermarket exhaust), even with cats, but I`m wondering if you bought the catted and got a tune, you might be able to pass? You could probably find some shop that will just pass you for a little extra cash, lol.

It's good to hear that cops are not giving you any trouble. Any idea how soon our cars need to be smogged? I have an 04. Yeah, I'm wondering just how good that "state-of-the-art" cat on the COBB TBE is; I might have to contact COBB and pop that question. Also, how many cats do our cars have from the factory? I am assuming if I got COBB catted TBE I would end up with only one cat, but not sure how many I have now. My guess is that running stage 2 base map does not help with emissions any, but I am wondering if say switching to economy or vallet real time map temporarily just for the sake of passing a smog test would help improve emissions. BTW, what map are you using here in Cali? Did you have any issues with the local gas? I am assuming you are running 91 stage 2 but did you have to get one of those LWG maps?

Thanks for all the great info!
