Hey GTony

I've got a 18d with the oval tip. I don't really like it and want to change the whole back box (or muffler as you say down under) to something else. There are a few manufactures now doing back boxes for the X1 (Hartge, Supersprint, Remus etc) but they're very expensive.

I hope that as the X1 is now filtering into the US a tuning company will start to produce something that will be a bit cheaper.

I guess I could get something fabricated by an exhaust specialist (as we seem to have a few of those in the UK) but think the finished article will look a bit rubbish. Coming from owning Subaru impreza's for the last few years I've been spoilt by the choice of performance back boxes in gleaming 304 grade stainless steel.

Hi fdpxfunix, The oval shaped pipe from the back box ( as you say ) on my 20d is not that long. Getting it cut at exhaust specialist and replacing it with chrome section might be only way. You would have to check/supply back section to your satisfaction of course before giving go ahead. You could cut some slits in oval pipe, bend in to round off, then slip good chrome/s-steel one over and bolt off. Maybe OK or to rough. As long as pipe diameter similar to original. I traded Forester XT for my X1 so understand about choice of good Subaru boxes. If I come accross something professional/looks good, will let you/nospam know.
