That lip combined with the "STi limited" style lip would be epic

This was a bit of a pain. First, sanded down the calipers do get grime and dirt off. Then I used an autozone paint with some wheel clear coat. it takes a few coats of each. Just a heads up though, A few months after doing it, it wore away with brake dust and had to re-do it.

Curious, how did the car preform with the UEL header? I'm debating on getting one but don't really want to do the work if it's just going to make my car run worse.

Shoot me a PM if you need a 2.5i decal.
Nice to see you joined the forum! There have been plenty of people asking so I am sure you will get some business!

people can say all they want UEL negatively affects performance but unless you're williaty you will never feel it. all I know is for me, they made the car. I couldn't drive without the rumble.

You only feel the difference once you go back to stock EL. The only headers I would get now are even better EL headers..Couldn't care about the sound anymore.

To me it seems that, yes the UEL design is less efficient, but with a high flow cat (or catless), that UEL inefficiency is negated and you are left with the same performance but different sound.

I am really tempted to throw down the cash for one of the Rallisport Racing headers.



So sexy.

I doubt the will flow any better. There's a lot of travel in those headers...The cat position ruins the design.

I can have my hopes on the flow.

Since I live in Kalifornia, emissions BS is kind of important. If I get caught catless it's something like a $2500 ticket and my car will get towed. At least that's the rumor. I know a lot of people who have been sent to the Ref but I can't remember if they were catless or if the cop noticed that they were catless or not.

The stock cat is part of the oem header. Some states require the cat(s) to be in the stock location to pass emissions. This setup is suppose to be a stock replacement to obtain the "rumble" and maintain stock emissions levels. No modifications required and no issues with the emissions police.

I honestly think it looks 10x better the the one that's on the sport model as well.

I will be waiting to see how they look, btw nice color 2.5i you got there
