AVO 3inch SS Catted Downpipe WRX / STI 2002-2007 / Forester XT 2004-2008 – Manual


AVO Exhaust 3in Stainless Steel Downpipe w/Cat – 02-07 Subaru WRX (2.0L/2.5L) / 04-07 Subaru STI


This 3inch downpipe (or Frontpipe) is constructed from high-grade stainless steel, ensuring longevity along with great looks. It also features our special cast iron outlet which incorporates a splitter to deflect wastegate gases thereby improving turbo spool up.

The high-temp cast outlet removes a major bottleneck present on the factory exhaust system with its large bellmouth design with splitter for the wastegate. A stock exhaust flange simply has a blank plate at the wastegate, putting a major lid on performance.

Your stock down pipe also uses one or two fairly restrictive catalytic converters. The AVO front pipe addresses this issue with a single large high-flow metal catalytic converter, larger than available from most other makers.

All this adds up to a huge decrease in back pressure and a big increase in performance. Use your turbo to its full potential!
