I get that there's not much to be gained performance wise, but the sound would be appreciated. I found Nameless makes some nice looking pieces, but nothing for the 2.5. I didn't find much on searching.

There are no other systems for our cars. I heard AVO has one in the works, though. What I did was add a Magnaflow resonator and two Magnaflow mufflers. Makes my 3.6 sound really good, and improved flow with my XRT tune.

No one makes a kit, not enough market demand.

Any decent exhaust shop can swap in a new muffler or chunk of pipe. I was happy with Magnaflow on my old Fords, but haven't run them on a Subaru. Stock exhausts on both of mine.

You can probably find a few clips on youtube for 5th gen exhaust sounds.

Suspect there is not much for the 2.5 because all you end up with is something that sounds like a weed whacker.

This is the instagram user where I found out about this exhaust. Here's a video of the muffler delete on his 2.5

Thanks for that. I went to youtube and found some Legacy 3.6R with the 5" muffler option. I would assume the outback would be similar sounding... perhaps less loud with one exhaust only? But either way, i think the 5" muffler is the way to go for me. The muffler delete just seems excessive.

You bought the wrong car! Nothing worse than a car that tries to sound like it's hot when it is underpowdered. Save your money and trade in for something that matches it's sound.

i was wondering where did you get the resonator and mufflers at and where to get everything to do the stage one and stage two xrt tune at

Here you go, these are the links to the mufflers I got and the resonator. Please note there will be a good amount of drone. I lived with it for over 3 years, but eventually went back to the stock exhaust.
