For me, the change in exhaust note from the Prodrive 330 system to the Scorpion 340 isn't as noticable inside the car as it is outside. Not as noticable as the harsher ride on the latter which affects my old bones.

Thread seems to have died a death. I guess there can't be many 2011/12 Stis around. I've never seen another one on the road. In fact I can do a 200 mile round trip on a weekend and never see another Scoob.

Nice to see the thread resurrected. Post some pics of your new 340r and hope you enjoy as much as I do. Wherever you go it'll be a case of 'all eyes on the sti'. Great car.

Hi,
Mark from HT Autos, just managed to borrow a car for a couple of weeks so we can design a new 2011/12 Subaru WRX STi diffuser. If we have time ,may also design a few other parts.

Very rough at the moment, but what do you think??







Cheers for looking,
Mark @ HTAutos

Looks very interesting Mark.

Does the centre section extend forward almost up to the sub frame now?

It ends about half way along the wheel well, so decided to add an extension piece to take it almost up to the subframe and mounted using some existing holes (plus a couple of self tappers) in the wheel well stiffening..........



Used part of a plastic mixing tray cut to size and then covered it in heatshield tape as its above parts of the exhaust "Y" pipe..........

Looks nice but in my honest opinion it looks like there is too much space between the bottom of the exhaust tips and the diffuser.
Looking good though

question on the 340 r upgrade... does it remove the catalytic converter? I was reading what the 340 r upgrade supplies on the pro-r website and it said a decat mid section is provided. If this is the case, what does this do to the MOT?

Interestingly, cars with a cat produce more CO2 than cars without...

Just a remap and back box change as far as I was aware. Don't think a manufacturer provided upgrade would ever remove the cat.

That's what I thought, but was a little concerned when I read it. The dealer only charged me 1600 fitted for the 340 upgrade, whereas it is 1670 on the pro-r site for the kit (not fitted?). The price difference (70 plus fitting) may cover the mid section.

Probably find that it removes the second cat, keeping the first in will keep it MOT friendly.

As per previous Prodrive upgrades the Pro-R 340R package fits a 2nd CAT replacement pipe and backbox/es.

Yep,

Although slightly different for the Gen3 cars this is the basic turboback setup.

As there is no cat in the up pipe (whereas the WRX has one) the cats become first and second



Top pipe in picture is a Gen 3 down pipe minus the 2nd CAT shielding/cover
