the previous years are different. prices are so high because there isn't alot of company's making them yet once more are offered on the market prices will come down. prices are high for products on all new cars.

I would think the DP itself is the same but the catback wouldn't be the same due to the car's length

but yeah I could be wrong, I haven't seen it in person to confirm... just saying it makes sense due to the engine being the same

it's worth checking out if you have a local dealer

the DP SHOULD be exactly the same. I don't see why they'd change it.

even if it isn't exactly the same, the only difference would be minor and a welder or muffler shop could fab up something to make it work out

would be cheaper than an 08 wrx downpipe

nah I haven't searched or anything but I know the engines are the same in the 08 WRX and the 07 Legacy

I don't plan on getting a downpipe for a while.

So the Legacy DP length and shape is correct to align with the catback? I hadn't seen that anywhere

yes

Subaru gave us a slightly better engine in the 08 WRX - the engine from the Legacy

that's why the 07 WRX/STi stuff doesn't work at all aside from things like radiator caps.

perrin for 08 WRX:


megan for 07 legacy:


note it isn't separated... but aside from that YES it should work... I'd be interested to see actual photos of each item side by side -- the megan one looks twice as long as it should be

I'm still a little skeptical but I hope you're right. The Megan Racing DP is for sale everywhere for less than $200.

I'm skeptical too -- the engine IS the same FOR SURE and the DP will mount to the engine side of things 100%

only thing I'm worried about is the other end (the flange looks like it's at the wrong angle) and the length of the DP (the Impreza is a shorter car)

I would say if you want to save money, go for it, and if it isn't perfect, you can have a muffler shop fix it or fab up a catback.

hmm this is something i will have to look into i think i am going to have to ask a shop around here if they know anything about this.... and if i find anything out ill let u know... but then again it might beworth the 200 for the leg dp and then have a muffler shop fab me up a cbe... it would make things alot cheaper just not sure i want a stupid sounding cbe... :(
