Hello everyone,

I got an exhaust leak from the resonator on my jdm forester 98. Since I need to replace it, I was thinking of maybe changing it to after market one. Any idea or anyone got an exhaust to sell. I also need to change the valve cover gasket. Should I buy them online or does pricing looks good in Winnipeg, and which one fits on it if I go to Canadian tire or some place like that.
Thanks

    The catback portion to start. It's kinda fricking cold to work outside. So I'll keep the front part for this spring

      I never got to install the one I got, but if you want something almost bolt-on you could look at a wrx exhaust too. From what I've been told, it's the same configuration, just a couple of the hangers might be not quite in the same place.

      People have good things to say about Duals Exhaust shop as well.

        I'll look into them. But I might just try and do it just for the fun of it. Don't know what I'll get. Do you have an idea on which one is good or do you know someone who change one that sounds good

            Because it's actually the rear catalytic converter that is busted so Im looking into changing that whole rear portion and looking at options. Do you have any idea or do you know someone who change theirs? Changing that rear catalytic portion back
