Impreza GC8 Singleport Borla header=

Once upon a time there was a singleport header, who went by the name of Borla. Borla was conceived in Imperial California, and was born to a happy factory in a small town in Bumble**** Tennessee. Or at least that's what I could pull from the Contact Us page.

Borla had a modest upbringing, filled with mandrel bends and TIG welding. One day, bright young Borla left the factory on his way to see the world, or at least the East Coast, all with the intent of giving a small NA Subaru engine it's voice.

To some, Borla lived an action-filled life filled with beaches, racing, and scenic mountain roads. But to those who knew Borla best, this life was filled with turmoil.

Borla's early career was quite possibly the best of his life, gleaming away while happily singing the Boxer Rumble. Then one day, Borla suddenly couldn't take the pressure and cracked. After some MIG rehab and crutches, Borla was back on his feet singing his tune.

Unsurprisingly, after some time, Borla relapsed with a spiral crack at his neck and another at one of his joints. Borla's manager, unable to deal with Borla's hectic schedule, broke off his contract and it seemed like that would be that.

It looked like the end until one day, Borla's voice was heard, singing away from the corner of a garage. A new Manager took note, and signed Borla to a deal. After some more rehab and a back brace, Borla was singing free again.

All was well for a year or two, until things took a turn for the worse. One day, Borla once again gave in to the pressure, and cracked, ripping off his nametag screaming "I AM THE GOD OF THUNDER!" This was followed by a vicious cycle of rehab, crack, rehab, crack, rehab, crack. The manager, not seeing the point in the rehab, decided to see if Borla would dig himself out of his hole, but it only got worse. Finally, fed up with Borla's ****, the manager dumped him to the curb where Borla now sits, singing quietly to himself that sweet sweet Boxer Burble.


Borla was last seen in Owings Mills, MD, wishing for a third sucker, er, manager to sign him to a new contract.



The header is cracked and needs some TLC. There is a small crack at the joint between the left and right pipes. There is also a spiral crack shortly after where these two meet, and a few small pin-holes from a previous repair that need a quick tap with a MIG. The flanges are clean, but the rest of the header has surface corrosion. The Borla logo went AWOL, but the tack welds are still present. I can assure you this is a genuine Borla header, and can probably dig up some pictures with the logo intact.

FWIW, I picked up the header with similar cracking, and it cost me $20 to have it repaired.
I'm looking for $150, picked up in the Northern Baltimore area. These headers are extremely few and far in between, as evident in recent Classifieds trends (as well as some Google searching).

This will fit all singleport 2.2L engines. Take a look at your car and count the number of studs holding your exhaust manifold to the engine. If you count two per side, this will fit. If you count three per side, this will not.
