Default custom made single port uel idea

so ive been extensivley looking onto a nice single port header for my 2.2. to my dismay there are virtually none to choose from that are still available. so what im proposing is an ebay dual port header modification. i am going to be buying one of the ebay 100 dollar headers for the rear half of it. and possibly the upright pipes to the ports but essentially id be cuttin the Y merge out of it and putting a straight section in to make it proper length. then using the 90* bent up to the header. the only thing i may have to make is flange that bolts to the head. any thoughts or has anyone done this?

obviously its not going to be a performance peice. its a ebay header to being with that wont have crazy flow characteristics. but the 2.2 isnt a performance motor. i want the rumble of a uel. for cheap as i am ultimatly swapping ej20g eventually next year some time but i am looking for a nice sound untill then. so no comments on why im doing it please.

id just like input from anyone that may have made a uel for the single port motors in the past. ideas or problems you have run into etc. thanks everyone. also if there is interest i can do a guide on how it is done and how it turned out. and soundclips afterwards if there is interest on such a thing let me know .

i made uels for my wagon a while ago with the use of the full stock pipe and header. i flipped the header around so it faced the front of the car. cut both pipes off at 5 inches passed the port (straight down then 5 inches out) ran a 90 from the pass side over the the drivers side merged in the drivers side under the core suport then ran 1 pipe to stock cat location. sounded hella nasty. it cost me a few cuttin wheels and a roll of weld wire. well worth the 3 hours messing with it when it came time to listen to the beastly growls coming from the back

I made one for my single port impreza when I had it. I bought the cheapest dual port header on ebay, cut the dual port section off the header, had single port flanges made, ordered 2 mendral J bends from summit, I think they were 1.75 inches and started welding, here are some pics. The welds were ****ty cause of my flux core mig welder, but it worked good and it sounded mean with my 3 inch wrx exhaust.
