It's all stock but besides the nameless axle back delete pipes. I just hope it's not too loud!

Throttle response feels smoother from idle to redline, torque feels better from 3000 to 5500. The rumble is amazing to. Your in for a lot of fun after install.

Do these headers cause any additional hindrance in changing the oil and/or filter?

There is more room to access it. Since there are no heat shields now in that area.

Thanks, that's the last thing I needed to know. I just placed my order, can't wait! Now begins the process on deciding which exhaust. Right now I'm leaning towards that OBX you have, Duvanator.

The fb engines will have the oil filter mounted up top? Allowing the header not to fit? Anyways no the 2012 legacy has the filter in the standard location. So there should be no problems running the header? So I'd think.

Just wondering if anyone has installed these with the stock exhaust system? I'm looking for a little extra rumble but nothing really loud. I did a muffler delete a while back and that got old after a while and now I'm a little bored with the quiet car.

Warning !!! Warning !!! Warning !!! Warning !!!


This exhaust after a long term test destroyed my radio.

I never get the news, dont hear traffic reports or music.. I think my power button broke...



Seriously speaking, I haven't used my radio since I put the exhaust on, I really like to hear the exhaust, its just that good.

Thanks Mike for a great product.

I know it's hard to pinpoint exactly, but any word on the latest wait time? I'll be coming up on a month here soon and I just want to time it so my exhaust comes around the same time. If not, no worries, I'm patient.

I'm perpetually running behind schedule (shocking, I know), so you are looking at a solid month before you header is completed and the ceramic coating adds another week to that.

Thanks!

Mike

Just changed my oil today and took a look over the headers, still as solid as the day I put them on back in October 2011

If you have a jack and a couple jack stands you will be able to swap this in without issue.
