I'm looking for a catless down pipe . What's is the best plug n play? I want to just stick it in with no mods if possible. I'm still running the stock turbo exhaust. So what's my best bet?

You wont be able to stick one in with no mods. You will have to have some sort of reducer installed if you want to keep the stock catback. It will also need to be able 6-8 inches in length.

Reason im asking what just bolts up is I already took a mid pipe off another legacy turbo cut the cat out, added in a 1ft piece of pipe so if I could find a downpipe that just drops in and will line up with the existing pipe I already made I have no problem cutting an reducing it etc to fit..

i think most will "fit" but not as plug and play as you want. Mine had to be shortened at the bottom end.

Hi,
The '02-'07 WRX/STi should be the correct length, but you'll need one of these:

This will connect to your stock exhaust and allow it to connect to an aftermarket downpipe's flange. CAREFULLY remove the donut gasket and move to the adapter....or better yet, get one b4 the swap and be prepared.

The picture is not showing up. Is that the Grimmspeed adapter?

Probably cheaper on eBay or other online source.
