I wouldn't even bother with UEL... It's crazy with all the mods needed to get one to work. You would have to take an entire 02-05 exhaust system and have it retro fitted to an 08. It sounds simple but you have to have flange extended 4". Then you have to worry about your 02 sensors. Most have said that you need to buy extenders. Then you have to worry about CEL.

I'll wait until someone develeops a direct bolt on UEL for 2008+. I'm hoping that maybe Subaru changed the current EL header back to UEL. However, that seems unlikely since they moved to EL for increased power.


Some have used 08+ WRX headers with cat, but I'm not sure what all is involved since the WRX header has a up pipe for the turbo.

Here's a thread that I have been following on 3GWRX.

Here's a link to the exhaust that I just installed onto my 2.5i.

I don't know your financial situation but for me it's too much $$ to shell out just for sound.

any dual port header for the EJ subaru engines will fit the cylinder heads.. fitting the rest of the exhaust up to it will take some fabricating or swapping parts. the quality... well, its crap.

If you work at a machine shop and can weld cast i would say get you a set of WRX/STi/LGT stock manifolds and mod them to mate to your stock mid pipe
