Wat? If you ask me it's got some serious issues. T3 flange, contorted downpipe, header cracking issues. Although, I suppose it's cheap in comparison to a UR or FR setup. Hope it works out for ya.

Should be interesting to see the results of a big HTA comp running twinscroll.
A few things about the APS turbo kit and APS parts

From what I have seen they make the best designed and highest quality parts for Subarus

I know that their old design headers had some cracking issues but this is a new design and I have seen many olther brand headers crack as well

Although the down pipe does have a turn in it given its diameter and design I don't feel it will have a significant impact on performance

The back housing is a T3 1.06 twin scroll which is capable to run high 8's / low 9's on an Evo and make mid 700 whp which is the goal of this car

After installing the APS turbo kit, I am very pleased with the fit, design, value and I would not consider changing it. Even if I loose a few whp on the down pipe bend its well worth it to have a uppipe flange that wont pop out and leak every two weeks and having serious well designed turbo supports, etc

We'll see how the project turns out
