Hi Guys


Took delivery about 3 weeks ago, p/blue 2007 2.5xt sportshift.  Loving every moment so far.

Done the following

JVC Bluetooth Headunit
Kuhmo Solus tyres
Tinted windows

Pulled service history on vehicle from agents, 221 000km now, at 205000 new heads, pump, radiator, cambelt, tensioners etc done with agents.

I am pretty much happy with car now except it does not SOUND like a boxer should.

I am looking at a replacement backbox anyway, the one on there is rusty and ugly by now... but want to keep it as stock as possible.

While we are here, does a freeflow back box sound crappy on an auto 2.5xt?

Your input will be well appreciated guys.

Hi Boxerulez,

Welcome to the frat!

I've got the 2006xt SportShift and have the full 76mm turbo back exhaust and it sounds epic! Especially on gear change at full chat, it sound quite similar to dsg cars, so as far as I can say, a good backbox would definitely sound good on your car.

Where are you based?

2006 Forester XT, Wiseco pistons, 18"Koya lightweight wheels, Bridgestone re002, VF48, '07 STi IC, 76mm exhaust, Walbro 255 fuel pump, Mishimoto inlet pipe, Phenolic intake spacers, Gizmo Electronic Boost Controller, TGV deletes. BC RA Coilovers, Brembo big Calipers, PB RS 326mm Discs, Coolboost WMI

Hey Bud.


I am in East London.  Went ahead with a Cowley back box yesterday and really happy.

Will keep this setup until the cats cave then Ill do a full system.
