Best fitting header ever. No flex pipes no slip joints. Just fits. Full review coming

this header will fit any triangular pan'd wrx/sti from 05-11.

on wrx 06 and 07 WRX ONLY you will need to remove the oil cooler and cocking bracket pictured together here



the cocking bracket is pictured by itself here



and make it look like this here



to do this you will need to blockoff or bypass the coolant line that runs into the oil cooler as well as aquire an N/A oil filter bolt. blocking off requires you to tap the water pump or ghetto rig a plug. the bypass just requires cutting the hard line bracket off which ends up looking like this here (displayed with N/A oil filter bolt)



finished product

Installed another one of these on my personal car today. Perfect fitment!

I'm just wondering where the factory subframe support is? It looks like it has to be removed to install this header

I'm not even certain you can fit aftermarket bracing on there. It just goes WAY over to the passenger side.

it is 100% installable without removing any of the factory parts on the newer models. I'm also assuming that, disregarding the oil cooler with the cocking-bracket, that it installs fine as well.

No worries. You dont see it under the car. Also, the factory sub frame brace does not need to be removed or modified whatsoever. I was also able to retain the factory under panel without it melting.

Full-Race headers are made from schedule 10 conduit (~.12 thick), which is 304. Killer B is the only manufacturer that I know of that uses 321 (alloyed with titanium).

Yes 304 cracks, but 409 is less strong at higher temperatures. That's why NO ONE uses it for manifold. It's a cheap material, cheaper than steel in some cases. I'm really suprised HKS puts thier name on this. They don't usually make cheapo stuff, but the material just doesn't match the application. If it did, everyone would be making them from 409 because it's inexpensive.

So why are you even asking the questions then? If you think its cheap then get one thaw the material you like

No lie, brody's car sounds just like a porsche now. It's especially pissed off, though quieter.

I'm cheap, just not quite Ebay cheap. Unless it will last twice as long as the 2 sets of Ebay headers I can get for $200 each

I've seen $1000 headers crack like nobody's business that were made of pure platinum and tyrannosaurus tooth enamel.... The point is any header on our cars is going to be prone to cracking.

ps. iirc the factory crosspipe and uppipe are made of the same material as these headers, and the top of the uppipe gets the hottest when running hard. not to mention the header has more area for gasflow than the stock manifold which would make it more efficient and cooler

^ lol, uh huh and not true. Headers crack from using materials not capable of withstanding the temperatures seen in turbocharged applications, poor manufacturing and crappy design. Header built to the contrary will outlast the car.

IMO buying cheap headers is just asking for eventual failure. The tricky part to me, or anyone else considering cheap headers, is does that happen in 5 months or 5 years. What kind of warranty do these headers come with and RallySport stands behind, might have some buying power too.

Thats not exactly a good thing. Those fail and leak all the time

I'd like to head more details on wall thickness on the up-pipe and that stamped collector. I'm sure RallySport can answer some questions, but really if it's got a decent warranty I'd care less about those kinds of details.

^lol, uh huh and not true. I was not being sarcastic. I have seen just as many high quality, "brand name" headers fail as ebay's. The exposure to rapid changes in temperature under the motor, the span that the manifold has to meet, and the HUGE amounts of torque experienced by making a seal between the manifold and the cantankerous subaru up pipe in combination with the previously mentioned factors lead to failures of either the header or the up pipe.

And they come with a 4 year warranty. It says, clearly, on their site under "warranty"

^Ive personally never seen a stock up pipe fail. Ive owned 3 subarus and currently own 2. None of them has had problems. If you want to talk about an exhaust manifold cracking look at the APS. My first set cracked in 3000 miles, I then had it welded back up. I plan to do the same with these HKS headers if it comes down to it. This manifold has some nice bracing where the welds are connecting to the collector so I dont think there will be problems with cracking there. Guess we will find out.

Ive seen lots of different manifolds crack made from all different kinds of metals. They will all crack eventually. For now this header was a more than reasonable price with perfect fitment and I dont mind spending the 45 minutes to install and un-install if I need to get it welded. Which you should be used to by now with all the ebay manifolds you speak of.

These ones you dont have to hit with a mallet to get off either
