Default grimmspeed gaskets

I would like to replace all my gaskets with grimmspeed gaskets because they are thicker than stock and I have a couple leaks.... only problem is they "don't seem to have any for the 2.5i" but I am sure some from the WRX/Sti have to fit.... has anyone done this and know which gasket, from them, will fit between the: headers and engine, between the headers and a track pipe, and between the axel back and mid pipe. THANKS!

Email Justin at Grimmspeed and find out what will and won't fit.

only the header to head gaskets will fit the stock 2.5i exhaust. the other STi gaskets are too big for 2.25" exhaust, not sure about the WRX gskets or if they are even different.

Are you still running the stock exhaust? The header gaskets will work and we probably have something that will work for the rest of your system. Feel free to give us a call and we'll get you what we can!

I keep meaning to throw another singleport exhaust manifold gasket in the mail to y'all so you can expand your offerings, I always walk out of the garage without it..... sadbannana.

1) I have yet to find ANY NA gasket that won't seal properly (unless there's mechanical damage to the flanges or the gasket) if you spray it with Permatex Copper Spray-a-Gasket before install.

2) If you still feel like you want to buy high-zoot gaskets anyway, the big dogs in the market are SCE Gaskets. They make solid copper embossed gaskets that will seal against high pressure gradients even over large-ish gaps. You can find their list of products for the 2.5L Subarus on their website.
