oh i know what you mean........

Everlong, taking out the resonator will give you a little more sound.. but what you really want to do is, get rid of that giant stock muffler!! the stock muffler is whats really cancelling out your sound

just change the axle back (and muffler). You shoudl get a nice rumble. Thats what i did to mine.

what did u get? what muffler?
All I did was take out the stock muffler and put in a piece of 2.25" straight pipe w/ a 45 to exit the bumper. It sounds good at idle, Quiet at 3000 rpm while driven. Nice and throaty when you get on it!

the G35 has a door that opens in the exhaust when you floor it (from what I've been told) and that's why it's quiet until you're on it...

however the G35 is a V6 and will sound totally different. the WRX has a boxer 4 cylinder and will always sound weird and rumbly like it's got a compression problem

get a catback/axleback and you'll get the nice quiet-ish rumble

check youtube for clips of axleback and catback and turboback and downpipe and header -- they'll all sound different
