Default Question about RS header fitting on 2.5i impreza

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/97-05...essories#rpdId

Would this header fit on an 07 Impreza 2.5i ? And if not, can I take it to the shop and will they be able to get it to fit ? And how much would it cost? Thanks.

Search for "UEL 2.5i" or "header 2.5i" and start reading.

I've been researching this for months, I already know most of what I can. I just want to know if those headers could possibly fit on my 07 Impreza, even if it requires welding.

What's odd about that listing is that is says WRX 2.5rs. But list on NA cars in the list below in the auction.

They are 4-2-1 headers, they should fit your 2.5i but you will need to do the rest of your exhaust setup to work with them including catpipe or trackpipe and catback, etc.

There are many vendors on ebay that sell them, see here

http://motors.shop.ebay.com/__?_from...w=2.5rs+header

Just understand that all UEL headers on ebay are not direct bolt on for 2.5i's, hence, read the NA section on the topic, there is so much info, it's quite scary at this point LOL!

You can try Borla replica headers.

So, you've been researching for months, yet you don't know what headers will fit, nor what parts you need to make them fit, nor where you can find the parts for sale. When you say you "already know most of what [you] can", what exactly does that include? Because it seems like most of what you can know doesn't include any of the actual information you need to know.

A simple search for "2.5i header" will find numerous threads that will tell you exactly what you need to know. It shouldn't take any more than a few minutes to figure this out, let alone months.

maybe he has an issue with google. you never know. maybe his "searching for months" is looking at 1 page every few months using stumbleupon. dont hate. maybe hes drunk every time he searches and forgets everything every time he searches. maybe we should set his car on fire for his ignorance. dont hate. lets burn him...

Nope. The only solution is to sell your car.

okay, 5 years late but here it goes, I have been doing research on this subject and came across this thread [search and reading] and this thread is the closets to what my question is. I don't know if your answer was sarcastic or real... sorry, in advance, but does it fit? I have a 2006 2.5i and I just want rumble, nothing more, nothing less... and please, I have been reading LOTs of answers of "Sell your car." "Buy STI/WRX." I don't really want a powerful car, just a commuter with rumble. Thank you for your time and expertise, I really do appreciate it, again thank you.

The dual port headers for the 98-05 will fit your 06 but your mid pipe will need some work to mate up to it.

Default Question about RS header fitting on 2.5i impreza

You're welcome.

Side note: IIRC, the pipe mating to the header may also need to be cut or extended a few inches as well.
