^This. if you really wanted to reroute the exhaust primaries, you'd need to make a completely custom manifold. which would require new turbos. So you are looking at a lot of money there. And it still won't sound like a subaru.

I suggest getting catless downpipes and a louder exhuast. You will soon forget about the greatness of the boxer engines. I miss my STI. but I have learned to love my 335i with no mufflers....
yeah, your best bet it so change/remove the cats and try different exhaust setups.
