It's got h&r springs and I had 2011 wrx wheels I'm getting rpf1s in the spring

I have a lot of suspensions goodies didn't go coils because I had a gti tucking 16's so I wanted a mild drop but not have to worry about snowboard trips and.what not

We ll see how they look on the car..just not sure if they will fit since I've lowered the car. I feel like they should since I have my rears rolled but I'm not so sure about the fronts anymore..

Only problems is, the O2 sensor location, and how the piping will work around.

They won't fit our stock mid pipe. I looked into it heavily before purchasing my rallisport headers.

If you want to use them, you'll need a older cat pipe from 06/07 2.5i's

They look like this to match up with the 90deg angle of your borlas



The 08+ are almost completely straight. If you haven't had the chance to look under your car this might look confusing. But the 08+ stock headers in the picture are mounted just past the second O2 bung, right next to the left set of exhaust inlet ports. Hard to see with all the heat shield. Sorry for the bad explanation, if I was on a computer I would just circle it.

I do have them. I love them more than anything else I've done to me car. I use to be bummed out about my car now I love it. I pared it with a magnaflow CBE and now I put my wrx buddy to shame, he agrees haha.

I also installed it myself, I was never that into cars before but now I do everything. It really all thanks to nasioc and doing my HW. It was an easy install. Basic hand tools set of ramps and a few beer. I had a friend help with the exhaust because we didn't use dw40 on the hangers.

The best part about doing the homework and installing it myself, a new found sense of how things work with my car.

Nice! With the stock CBE could you hear a significant change with the rallisports in?

No codes yet. Stated the car on several occasions at -5deg C.

If you speed and you see a cop, stab the brakes. Tint on the front, see a cop, roll'em down.

Been going 5 months with front tint. No problems yet. Might look kinda silly rolling them down in the dead of winter, but we'll see how it goes.

I actually went from complete stock everything to rallisport + Magnaflow.

My personal thoughts were that if I put the exhaust on first and then headers made no significant difference I would hate myself for spending the extra money. The rallisport thread had a few good videos about the difference between cat backs before and after the headers.

Before and after.


Ad just a nice drive by.


EDIT: Not my car in the vids, two different cars. Same headers and exhaust on both cars: rallisport racing header + Tsudo N1.

Very nice! Sounds awesome on the drive by! Just what I need, something else to think about spending money on. Did you do a tune of any kind, or just the exhaust setup?

No tune needed, the stock ECU learned its way around the new setup just fine. Better gas mileage after the install as well.

Cool! So, it is the RalliSport 2.5i NA header and, what, Magnaflow 2.5i or WRX catback? Combo sounds really good!

The exhaust used in both vids were Tsudo N1. I haven't posted and videos of my magnaflow set up yet. But when looking for a cat back all wrx car backs work for 2.5i's direct bolt up. Keep in mind 4dr for 4dr ....etc.
