    My subaru dealer is happy installing HKS or Invidia. They apparently make bolt-on cat-back levorg exhausts.

    I second HKS. Japan parts has a nice one for the Levorg, which in time I'll be getting installed on mine.

    Also seen MRT has started upgrades for the Levorg recently if ur in that state.

    Thanks to everyone who responded to my thread. I will now do some more research on the recommendations from your replies.
    cheers

    Invidia stock hasn't landed yet-should arrive early to mid next month.

    I had a HKS on one of my previous cars. Build quality was awesome and fit was just as good but I just didn't like the exhaust note.

    I think I will speak to Hurricane about custom making one for me

    I assume you are running the 2.0 Litre rather than the 1.6?

    You're lucky - I've no idea why we only get the 1.6 here - it's like they don't understand what the customers want - i'd happily have paid extra for the more powerful engine - I wonder how complex a transplant would be.....

    Although it's not on their website, http://www.prospeedracing.com.au now have stock of the full turbo back Invidia Q300. I ordered mine today, will be fitted next week sometime with a full dunk tune. Expecting around 50KW and 80NM torque increase :)

    Nice one, any idea on the note & price?

    The exhaust will be my next project.

    Price for the full system is $2090 + $15 delivery. The note is not loud and in your face. It's rather subtle. I had one on my previous MY15 WRX, it just nice enough to notice but it's not a cop magnet. The one on the WRX was cat back, I'm going turbo back this time, cater for the additional weight of the Levorg with more KW's.

    I can recommend a guy in Brisbane that does my tuning. He's awesome

    Not to bag them as I have never been there, but MRT don't have the best reputation with other car tuners etc. Also they leave the stock Can's and tail pipe on the car. Why? They reckon people don't like the noise of the exhaust on the motorway. If that's the case why have a straight through exhaust in the first place LOL

    That's certainly quite an impressive power gain :D
    Does the exhaust system enable one to retain the Subaru warranty?

    Haven't researched MRT, cheers for the heads up.

    Keen to hear what your exhaust sounds like after you get it fitted.

    As far as I am aware. I spoke to Subaru when I bought the Levorg and asked them about the exhaust. So long as it is not directed the cause of an issue then the warranty stands. You can always put the old one back on and then call them :)

    Once the car is all done I will posts some results, pics and video.

    Just put some http://www.avoturbo.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=318 mufflers (bought via MRT) on mine last night. They are a bit louder than stock, but not much, even though you can see right through them.

    Sounds like a stock wrx sti, hardly loud, but at least I can tell what the engine is doing now!

    (Edit: tried to post a picture, but it doesn't seem to work)

    Did you upgrade the air filter set up aswell?

    Any chance of uploading a video for us?

    Use the 'Upload a File' tab which is located next to 'Post Reply' tab.

    I'm thinking about a cat back Invidia Q300 set up with cold air intake and tune to boot. Only a 15kw increase yet if i can hear the car better then it'll serve me well.

    Here's the comparison of the two mufflers, stock on the bottom. Hadn't fitted the tip at this stage.
