You're basically stuck with the Borla.

That's what I though. I've been waiting for a year for another company to design some headers for the 2.5 but I guess I'll have to get the borla.

I'm looking for header for my 2.5RS too. I've only seen Borla so far, and it doesn't look too well build from most the pics I've seen so far. Recently, I've found a company ( SPO Motorsports/SYMS ) who's designing one for the N/A cars.

Here are some pics from their website. It looks pretty good, I can't wait to see them.

Syms is notoriously expensive (some would say overpriced). Most posts I've seen from people with the 3rd gen Borla headers (the latest version) seem very happy with them and the early quality problems seem to have been resolved.

Post Header for N/A & Turbo

My car is currently N/A and will be for a while until I get enough money for a turbo. What headers are on the market that will work for both? I'm leaning towards the MRT set-up even though it won't work with a turbo since the header-back cost around the same as the borla header alone. Any others?

Is there a big difference between the borla and the spo equal-length header as far as hp/tq gains & sound quality?

I wouldn't hold your breath for the Syms NA header. That thing has been in "development" the last little while.
