Default Looking for single port headers

Wtb single port headers for an ej22 in my 1996 impreza l. Was told to post in here although I've posted in the wtb section with no feedback and I posted in Midwest and I'm getting the idea that no one is making them anymore. If I were to get them fabricated who would I talk to locally? A muffler shop?
Or if anyone knows someone that has or if you have a set your willing to deal I could really use a set.

Feel like fabricating? I have a set that I made. You'll wanna make a new midpipe, and it is catless right now....

Stopped making them to pursue other ventures. You could ask him to make a set but I doubt he will unless the $$$ is good.

Yeah he stopped making them and I could only assume the price would be out of my range to have him go out of his way.

making a set of single ports isn't a difficult task if youve got a set of manifold flanges a shop could bend you up one in an hour counting weld time. It literally is a "few" bends then mate it to the mid pipe.

I thought about checking with a muffler shop to see what they have to say. Waiting on storm to get back to me on those headers first.

I'll try to get some current pics. I'm in Cleveland, and these suckers went through a few winters.....so they'd look better off wrapped!

Supers' Headers still pop up FS over on rs25.com...... They're UNequal length for the rumble and ease of installation.

I spent alot of time on mine, making a jigcutting, fitting, TIG welding, etc..... To fab up something like the pics above mine, I can see maybe $100. I'll PM you the current condition of the longtube header (now with a flex section).

Is the flex section the part in the drivers side. Also how much modification to my exhaust would I have to do to put these on.

Yeah, it's on the drivers side. The amount of modification needed to make this work with a stock-ish exhaust may seem daunting...... I just made one of my own....

Sorry read the pm first. How long do you think it would take to fab up the exhaust to make it work.

I have an unused single port header on hand in my garage now.

I actually have two of them as I was making them for awhile.

When I had a track pipe made for my car it cost me $100 to have an exhaust shop do it. This was before I learned how to weld of course. Keep in mind that if you use a header and then eliminate the cat and resonator, it will be very loud. You could go with an STi axleback which is 2.5" and the STi muffler will quiet it down enough so that the exhaust won't draw too much attention from the local authorities. It's also illegal for exhaust shops to intentionally remove a catalytic converter from a vehicle being operated on the street. Some exhaust shops will make a catless pipe for you if you state that its for track use only. Otherwise, magnaflow makes some really nice OBDII catalytic converters that flow well.
