Default FINALLY. 2.5" turbo back.

Well, with the help of Tony and his downpipe and my friend Ted who welds good... there's a 2.5" turboback on my Greddy kit. With the exception of the Tony Pipe and Ted's welding and cutting skills, everything was bought on eBay from the tubing, cats, and mufflers, to the exhaust hangers.

My butt dyno tells me that it moves with the same urgency as my WRX, but at the drive-thru I realized I had the boost controller on LOW. It goes into full boost at around 3K rpm and half boost at about 2500 rpm. I just need to get another 90 angle bend and an exhaust tip and everything will be complete. It's still a bit deafening, but not as bad as it was muffless. Pictures will be coming hopefully later tonight if Ted remembers to e-mail them to me.
