They should since it's the same part number for both the LGT and WRX on Perrin's site.

eBay is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get.

Because for every eBay car part success story, there's 10+ horror stories. I'm glad yours worked out fine, but I can't count the number of times someone's come to me for advice either in or outside of the shop on an eBay part that either doesn't fit right or requires some modification, has broken or fallen apart, has rusted prematurely, has paint chipping off, doesn't come close in performance to a more expensive part, or all of the above. I honestly believe that the whole idea of buying something cheap just because it's "good enough" (whether it's on eBay or not) despite having potential drawbacks is helping bring down the value of high quality parts that are actually built to last and have proper R&D behind them. Today's economy has spurred a lot of companies to produce parts that are simply "good enough" for cheap because the demand exists there, but of course often times "good enough" breaks and a lot of these people end up spending more money (and time, which I count to be just as valuable as money) than they planned to begin with. Thus, everyone loses in the end.

Like the turbo kits people buy on eBay. It ends up being a waste of money, getting only half the boost it would be if the parts were legit. Or they end up spending more money because of the damage it caused.

you cant compare a knockoff turbo to a knockoff header. there is allot more that can go wrong with a turbo, rather than a few tubes that are bent and welded together, with a couple of flanges on the end (which is all a header is)

You're right, you can't compare the two. But an eBay part is an eBay part so it's buyer beware. If it works, great. If it doesn't, it was a waste of time just like Armin said.

Funny thing about this is I have had a hks and a avo header that both cracked and at this point I have rewelded about half the joints on my current avo...

Less work just to buy a damn ebay header and plan on changing it once a year...

BTW that design you show in the ebay header is a pita to install compared to the non-intragal up pipe type

Yeah, but from what I've heard, the ebay N/A headers are considerably more reliable than the turbo headers.
