They all fit. eBay is always cheapest. You need to learn to search.


Mods, can I get a locked thread in here?

I decided to go for ebay reps since they are about 100 dollars cheaper and from what ive read the same in performance. What seller is everyone buying there replica's from ? I found about 3-4 in similar price range and wanted to know who ppl are buying from. If someone could post an ebay link that would be great thanks

I just purchased the newer style borla headers from boxer4racing. I was doing some research and the older borla's had a problem with cracking after a while. But the new ones they have now i have heard nothing bad about, all good things. So i went with them........ look it up and see how many people have had to replace their replicas. Just some info i gathered. But i have had my full exhaust (borla header, stromung high flow cat w/ pipe, and apex'i n1 catback) for a couple months and i am very pleased.

If your trying to do full exhaust, its a bit pricing, but do the same set up as me. You can feel the power gain the first time you drive it. Not sure what the numbers are as far as hp and torque but i know its pulling a heck of alot harder. Plus the sound is just sexy. You get that wrx deep boosted prrrrrrr. check this video out...... youll see what i mean.

One more thing...
don't make the mistake i made when i installed mine...Make sure you buy exhaust wrap 50'x2" (I bought DEI) and wrap the header then spray it with high temp silicone paint before installing. Unlike the OEM header, it does not trap exhaust heat which are done by heatshield on OEM ones. If you install it bare, you will get a CEL (gas cools down too quick to fire up the catalytic converter) and eventually you'd have to take it off and wrap it then reinstall, unless you want to eliminate CEL permanently or drive around with CEL. I live in NY and it won't pass state inspection unless you fix this problem. I should've done it right the first time. But I'm happy with the result. It gives deeper sound and let's the exhaust flow better.
The only con I've read was that it makes the increases rust/corrosion of the header when it traps salt in winter time. But it will save you time and stress of fixing it eventually.

Hope this helps.

umm... buy an ebay one if you want to deal with cracked header on a monthly basis. otherwise buy a borla one and deal with cracked header on a monthly basis.

in other words, they will crack. a lot. be ready to take your header off all the time.
