I agree with you.
There's a slight pulsing, but not as pronounced. Tell you what though, the NA non-turbo 90-94 Legacies had the better sounding headers!

But a muffler is a muffler, it helps muffle the sound. Anyone works, it's just how well each one MUFFLES the sound. I would put in a hot rod skinny resonator in the midpipe and a 4" x 20" tip on my setup. It's just me....I like the boiling ecoing in the tailpipe, very mean.

True but depending on the way the muffler muffles the sound will affect sound quailty. A muffler with sound deadining material will sound different than one that uses chambers to create an opposite pressure wave which ultimatly reducing noise level. I would guess that the straight though version would have an improved boxer sound. My guess would be a dynomax super turbo would sound very nice. Although I have not heard one. Can anybody back this up??? sound clip perhaps???

I'd be happy to shoot down your theory.

Borla Catback only (straight-through muffler):

Borla Catback with UEL Borla-replica headers:

As you can see, without the headers, you get virtually no pulsing at all.

i miss my old setup. it was a 2.5" straight pipe, no cat, and Blitz NuR-Spec on my 1.8L. sounded mean as hit, and fucking loud as all hell. got a lot of pros from the old muscleheads in my neighborhood. doesnt exactly compare to my current setup ( STI axleback, stok header, stock cats ) does it?

A custom Magnaflow catback with a Borla header and R/T catpipe get my vote.
