i know this is going to annoy people but i just really want to stress this issue. The Rallisport UEL headers for 2.5i's are 100% direct fit?

Sorry to comment in an old thread, but everyone is talking about the 2.5i. Will the ebay uel headers bolt right on the 2.5RS? I just want to make sure because no one has said anything about the RS, just the 2.5i.

It's been a long time, but I have an update!

A few months ago, my car hit 60,000 miles (I know, I don't put miles on very quickly), and when I took it in for service, I was told there was a hairline crack on my headers/exhaust manifold (whichever term you use).

I forgot about this (whoops), and was driving the other day when all of a sudden my car started making a large metallic rattling noise similar to old beat up muscle cars. Got home, looked under, and one of the pipes completely severed.

Since I've been out of the market for a while, does anybody have any recommendations for what to get to replace these? I'd like to keep the cost low.

I know when I got these, Borla's weren't the best and it was just an "Any aftermarket brand will do", but I'm not sure if the market has changed in the past 4-5 years.

Also, sorry for not getting back to a lot of you! I was working nearly full time while going through college in three years, so I had no spare time at all for a really long period. I will try to get back to some of you and clear my inbox a bit to where you can still send messages.

Hah! I was looking through some pages and noticed a lot of people asking questions that I should have answered in my first post. Thank you guys for redirecting these people to the first page where I tried to be as thorough as possible.

I remember this thread from like 4 years ago lol. I ran the Borla UEL setup for about a week then ditched it for a LGT stock manifold modded to mate to my otherwise stock exhaust. Cost was $120 for the stock manifold, O2 extension, flange and bungs. Cost me $165 for the cut of the UP connector and a welding on of the three bolt flange piece.

Much much better than the Borla style setup, durability is OEM and OEM is 4 life

Damn, I wish I knew that four years ago. Easily a much less expensive solution than mine.

use your stock cat for a total of 273........
How do you know which EL headers specified as WRX or STI headers will work on a 2.5i model? Is there a range of years that have the same bolt pattern that can translate from a turbo model to a non turbo model? I have an 07 impreza 2.5i and have lived in the snow of CT and right on the beach in CA and it has taken a serious tole on my exhaust. I am so rusted out and together that i need to basically replace from the headers back. Anyone have a good suggestion other than replacing stock for headers back on a 07 2.5i?

Default Borla Headers Warranty Question!!

Hey everyone!

I've been trying to decide whether to buy the $400 Borla UEL Headers for the 2.5RS or to buy the Ebay knockoffs for about $150-200. Since I heard quality and proneness to cracking is about the same (which is kind of sad on Borla's part in my opinion), the only thing thats got me torn is the Million Mile Warranty.

However, after reading the Million Mile Warranty page carefully on the Borla site, I read this in the last paragraph: "This warranty is valid for BORLA® street-legal products only and does not apply to any racing products or street products used for racing purposes." Borla's page for the headers clearly states: "This product is for Racing or Off-Road Use Only."
Does this mean that the warranty does not apply to the headers?

Also, I'm planning to put the headers on a 2006 Impreza 2.5i... However, after once again reading the Million Mile Warranty carefully, the last paragraph also state: "This warranty does not include the cost of removal or reinstallation of the product, and does not apply if the product has been damaged by accident, abuse, misuse, or misapplication."
Does putting the headers on a 2006 2.5i count as "misapplication" and will this void the warranty?

Thanks!
