Question MRT header questions

ok, so i'm looking into getting headers for my RS and i have a few questions. i know that the borla's are compatible with aftermarket turbo kits. does anyone know if this is true for the MRT kit as well? something tells me by looking at the design that the uppipe wouldn't be located properly, but hopefully i'm wrong. i just don't want to buy headers twice (or worse, go back to stock! ).

also, has anyone proven that the MRT produces more power than the borla? thanks.

MRT won't work with any of the turbo kits on the market for existing N/A cars. Borla or stock are your only choice, unless you want to design a custom up-pipe but the collector pipe is further back on the MRT, so it would be a funking up-pipe, that is for sure.

Stay stock or go borla if you ever plan to turbo.

Yeah, no way the MRT will work with a turbo unless you want to cut the MRT pipe...

...say cut it where the H pipe meets and put two small turbos...

Mmmmmmm

What about Tech Works Engineering headers, they are 4 in 1 and they will fit right in place of stock.

Any header that uses the stock cats in the stock location should be a direct bolt on to any aftermarket Subaru turbo kit.

The only question would be if the header is good for turbo use.

Thumbs up

thanks for all the quick replies! i figured that the MRT wouldn't work without some significant massaging. the TWE header looks pretty good but...the jury is still out.

this is a bit OT but it's my thread, i can hijack it if i want! dcrawford, did you mention in another thread way back that you have an injen intake for MAF based cars? i know that you were developing one as well. i might have gotten the two confused. anyhoo, i was just wondering about the performance and fitment of the injen MAF CAI. thanks.

Sorry, but I've never had an Injen intake. I don't even know what they look like!
