The MadDad(TM) Whisper catback exhausts have earned their rightful reputation as one of the most desirable catback exhausts in the Subaru community. This doesn't happen by accident and it doesn't happen overnight. It's an honor that's been earned over the years by delivering unquestionable engineering to provide a no drone 3" catback that has no need of band-aid resonators. A reputation for delivery perfect fitment every time, and a reputation for delivering the most well balanced sound anywhere in the market. Putting a smile on your face without the need of waking your neighbors....and now it's available in an exclusive layout specific for the 08+ STi models.

No compromise exhaust flow. We go straight into the center of the canister where a collector splits the exhaust flow into two symetric baffles exiting left and right. It's the straightest exhaust flow with the fewest bends you will find anywhere.

The Gentlemen's Exhaust. Classic Whisper good looks with quad double walled oval tips . Whispers are always designed to fit and tuck up to appear like an OEM system. We'd go so far as to say this looks more OEM than the OEM exhaust. Benefit ? No unwanted attention that says "pull me over officer"

The same No-Drone engineering the Whisper's are famous for. You will be awe struck by how refined the sound is inside the cabin at any rpm and at any engine load. No other brand on the market performs in this area like a Whisper does and its one of the many reasons Whisper owners never sell their exhausts for something different.

Patented, imported German exhaust packing. Is it more expensive..absolutely, but once it settles in it never blows out. Try and find a used Whisper catback...it's the reason a used Whisper is a hard find. People don't get rid of them even after years of use, unlike others that just get continuously louder from the day that you bought it. Now ask yourself, which exhaust was really more expensive? The one you never have to get rid of or the one you flip for something else a year later because you can't stand the sound anymore?

Complete T304SS right down to the flanges.

Two-piece intermediate pipe with swapable flange sections means you can buy the catback today for 100% proper fitment to your OEM downpipe, then flip to a full 3" flat flange connection when/if you buy a full 3" downpipe without a compromised donut gasket taper. No need to worry about what downpipe you might get in the future.

The MadDad(TM) Whisper Gaurantee - You've got two-weeks from the date of receiving your exhaust to install it and love it. If you don't think it was worth every penny, return it for a full refund on the catback price. Note - ship to and return freight is not refundable. We expect returns to be used but in close to new condition. We understand it might be dirty but we're not expecting a dented up exhaust be returned for full refund.

4 of 5 Great sound, 98% drone-free, terrible fitment October 3, 2015
Reviewer: Brent Sonnen from Lancaster, PA United States  
I have a really long review on NASIOC ("2011-2014 GR Hatch catback comparision - Invidia Q300 v2 vs Maddad Whisper v3") with pictures and a lot more details but I'll try to keep it short here.

(1) Takes a few weeks to be made and delivered.
(2) TERRIBLE fitment. The drivers side tips stick out and sit higher. The midpipe rattles against the heatshield even with a Kartboy XL bushing on the midpipe.
(3) The tips are supposed to be double-walled but they're really thin. Closer to single wall than double.

(1) The sound is EXCELLENT. It's not as deep as the Q300 but it still sounds great. No drone when above 2000 RPM.

If the fitment issues were resolved this would be a 4.5/5. This is the most expensive exhaust I see and if they're going to price it high they need to perform on all levels not just focus on the sound. Either bring the price down or use the extra money to fix the fitment issues.

5 of 5 Excellent exhaust December 21, 2010
Reviewer: Brian LaPierre from Dover, NH United States  
I bought this exhaust in August 2010. I had an used ebay knockoff on my WRX and while I like the sound, it droned pretty bad and after 2 years was getting on my nerves. I purchased the Whisper after reading reviews on IWSTI and NASIOC.

The sound of this exhaust is great. It makes the car more distinctive inside and out and I have no complaints about any drone. The fitment was top notch and I had no issues with the install. I like the symmetrical look it gives the rear of the car, and the close to OEM looks helps keep negative attention away.

The one thing to be cautioned about is the location of the hardware package/gaskets. I rushed home to get the exhaust and couldn't find all the hardware at first. Given that it was 4pm on a Friday and I wanted to get the exhaust on as soon as possible. I immediately went to try and get some parts. As I got back, I found the bag taped to one of the outlets. DOH! Just make sure to check carefully and don't be too anxious to get it installed :)
