Thanks for saving my wife and me lots of money with your videos! We have a 2010 Subaru Impreza 2.5i Premium with a rusted out flange joint between the y pipe and driver side muffler such that you can see through (see picture). It is loud. Passanger flange joint almost as bad. We live in a city with 125 inches of snow per year and heavy salt. Need to replace mufflers and Y pipe together, cost for OEM parts is $1,100.
I would love to buy OEM because I believe in well-made, quality parts but I also believe in saving money. I noticed that a Borla S-Type performance exhaust is much cheaper than OEM. Is it wise to buy a performance cat-back echaust from Borla on the grounds that it will be higher quality than other aftermarket parts (Walker, NAPA, etc)? I am not a car-mod type of guy and I certainly don't want an obnoxiously loud car but I do want parts that will last in our snowy and salty conditions. Thanks for your help.
