HI Budsy, welcome to the site. CES is the only company I can think of that still makes.an exhaust that fits the SS, but it will probably cost close to what you're paying for the car!

What most people do is grab something from ebay that fits a 2002-2007 WRX or STI and have a welder extend it to fit, as well as moving the hangers. Without spending several grand on engine management, turbos, injectors etc, there's no benefit to getting a massive diameter exhaust either. 2.5"-3" is really the largest you should be thinking about.

Just grab something from eBay for a 2002-2007 Wrx or Sti that's in your budget. Just remember that without engine management and other mods etc, none is going to make much to any more power than the other.


Leave the stock headers alone under 400hp, or you are hurting performance!

Once again, welcome!

I'm running a Tomei ELH with up-pipe, Nvidia DP, and a Tomioka catback exhaust. All of this was intended for a 02-07 WRX.

The header fits perfect. The downpipe hanger matches the transmission mounting point. All the other hangers are off, but not by too much. The tubing bends are all in the correct locations. The axle back portion could be 3 inches longer, but I have no issues with the exhaust exit being in 3 inches from the rear of the car.
