Car: MY05 Impreza OBS 4EAT
1. Will the TWE header hit the subframe/melt the P/S line?
2. Will the TWE header allow me to drain my tranny fluid without removing the header?
3. Can I use my existing skidplate with the TWE header (I already have spacers because of the Borla replica)?
4. Is it cost effective to get the header coated rather than wrapping it?
5. Last, will coating the TWE header still produce the P0420 CEL (have never had the CEL with the wrapped Borla replica)?
Sorry for so many questions, but I appreciate the help. By the way, I talked with Tom at TWE and the price really is cheaper than what they quote online.
The "new" headers twe is producing are designed for 06/07 I thought. The 4-2-1 design runs right under the trans drain plug on my 5MT, but a tool can be fabricated for little $ to aid removal of the plug without removing the headers. A little drip pan or something around the headers like alum foil when draining the fluid should do the trick. If you want a pic of the tool, let me know and ll post it here. The 4-2-1 design will fit the 4EAT according to who I bought mine from.
