You aren't going to be able to get that sound.
Not on the FA20DIT at least.
The FA20DIT uses equal length headers and a twin scroll turbo.
This reduces turbo lag at the low RPMs but kills that classic sound.

IMO the subiespeed exhaust is one of the closest sounding. Still sounds like a boxer but lacks the burble of the ul header.

Welcome to the site. Like already said, you wont be able to get any boxer rumble out of the new engine in the wrx. You can get a great sounding exhaust though. There are plenty that I think sound great. Best bet would be to go to a meet and listen to see what you like. Some of the better sounding ones imo are Perrin, ETS and COBB.

I had the COBB one and it sounded good. But now i am selling it =(.
COBB was my first option because of the way it sound. It was not too loud or rasbpy.
