Afterburner Raptor Subaru Forester Performance Exhaust Backbox
Following on from the huge success of the legendary Afterburner Vortex
, we announced the arrival of our latest high-performance silencer back in 2013: the Afterburner Raptor, offering the ultimate in power and soundtrack, and its since become our best selling exhaust.
Timed to coincide with the tenth anniversary of the Afterburner Vortex (possibly the best-selling Impreza exhaust of the last decade), the announcement of the all-new Afterburner Raptor was great news for Impreza owners offering the very best possible performance from a silencer.
3" Bore Pipework with 2.5" Adaptor
The Afterburner Raptor features full three-inch bore pipework compared with the standard Impreza’s 2.5-inch bore. Ingeniously, it also includes its own adaptor plate converting the pipework flange to 2.5” bore allowing easy fitment to a standard centre section if required. The Afterburner Raptor incorporates a shorter silencer box than the Vortex – resulting in a deeper exhaust note.
Spiralled Baffle & Angled Exit
The Afterburner Raptor also features a variation on the Vortex’s spiralled baffle, while retaining the performance-proven ‘angled exit’.
Includes Removable Baffle and 5" Tailpipe
Meanwhile, its removable wide-bore baffle allows customers to quickly change the volume and soundtrack of the Afterburner Raptor, while a five-inch slash-cut tailpipe adds to its visual appeal.

"I popped up to see you yesterday morning and had the above exhaust fitted, I'd just like to say it sounds and looks absolutely fantastic! I've had so many positive comments already and just wanted to say thanks, your service and the exhaust were top notch" - R McGowan
"I ordered an Afterburner Raptor and Du Luck Panel Filter, and have had fitted to MY56 STI Spec D, WOW, what a difference and what a noise, makes it sound like an animal, the looks you get put a smile on your face (apart from the elderly) the best £400 pound I have ever spent and worth every penny" - S. tyler
"Just had my Vortex backbox changed for the new Raptor.Even though they were very busy, Scott (from Scoobyworld) came out to me and fitted it on my drive. Was unsure at first about making the change, (from Afterburner Vortex) but as soon as I started the car and heard that deep burble the doubt was gone. The sound on accelaration is truly awesome and worth every penny for the fun factor. Been a customer for a few years now and will remain so for as long as i have the car" - Andy.H
