    WANTED WRX 2004 back box

    Just seeing if any of yous have a back box that will fit a 2004 wrx ? Something that has good sound as im just after fitting a non resonated center pipe going to an sti back box and i can confirm theres been 0 change in the noise / gurgle. Disappointing to say the least after spending 200 squids on it.

    Any recommendations would be appreciated thanks.

    What sti back box did you fit photo please
    also when you say no differance you mean in noise level or over all tone . There should be a nice sound from a 2004 wrx Have a rcm back section there a it wasn't wat I wanted so went for a genome sti rear section

    Picture attached, unsure as it was on the car when i bought it, both in noise level and sound, when you say wasnt what you wanted is that because of noise or look or ? Where are you based ? Thanks for your help !

    My advise Danny is don't spend any more money on a exhaust until you here a few in person, either come along to a meet and join up( best 50 euro you'll ever spend) as it will save you money in the long run or get along to a cars and coffee somewhere tomorrow and you'll hear some nice exhaust notes and deside what is best for you.
    as Marcus Gronholm once said "up the arse of timo"...

    Good advice right there definitely join up see a lot more even had a exhaust thread in members section before from what I remember I have prodrive exhaust nice rumble but would be considered quite nice sound though I like it perks up a bit when opened up. What neck of woods you in there is a meet coming up but can only see if full member plenty of different types sound etc lads would be happy to let you hear them
