my thoughts go with the GS, for the simple fact that they will not crack and they will hold heat better than an ebay manifold. Heat is the main factor in keeping a turbo turning.

Grimmspeed if it's a small to medium turbo and eBay headers for anything bigger than a 30r.

I'd say Grimmspeed regardless, enequal has better spool up characteristics according to what I've seen and read on here plus you keep the subaru sound, factory reliability, and they aren't as much as you stated, they're 325 without the core charge, unless you're including gaskets and thermal coating etc. I'd go with Grimmspeed.
