You are fine... tune it man.
And I agree with the others, the 9th gen Si transmission is one of the best on the market - bar none.

wrx off the lot feels like crap. You have to buy bushings and short shifter just to get a somewhat pleasurable shifting experience--now thats bad.

Not to say your bad at driving stick or anything but it would only grind if the clutch wasn't fully compressed when second gear is selected

Cracked downpipe

Hey guys. I have an ultimate racing downpipe and I just found it had a crack at the weld just after the cat. Has anyone else had this problem? I know it hit a couple of times from hard launches further down from the cat and I'm not sure if that had something to do with it.

I tried warning people.
Its not a good daily driver pipe its super thin.
Remove it and take it to get purge welded.
If you get it miged it'll crack again.
Find someone that will purge weld it and call it a day.

Purge welding is the same as sanitary welding in that an inert gas "purges" out the oxygen inside the pipe while welding it from the outside. This prevents oxidation of the weld on the inside of the pipe and the weld puddle penetrates deeper giving you a stronger weld. It is also the only way to get a smooth seam inside the pipe.

lol wow that looks like a nasty disease.

I am torn between two downpipes right now, Ultimate Racing and Full Race.

Does UR's DP bolt up to the factory exhaust?

Yes it does. I would go with Full Race. I had UR once upon a time.

you didn't like it? just going by pictures on each of their websites, it seems like the quality of FR is better. However I like UR's cast bellmouth design. It seems like FR uses an expanded / crushed pipe for their bellmouth section, and I'm worried about the durability of such a design. but then again, FR is charging $50 dollars less for theirs, so I might end up going that route.

UR doesn't use true stainless hardware so the bolts were rusting quick,
