Default Headers for 2015 WRX?

Has anybody heard any news about some aftermarket headers for the 2015s? Anybody think there will be a chance for UEL headers? If so would you guys be interested in some UELs?

My mechanic suggested me to NOT do my exhaust and get some headers and leave the exhaust stock.

There was a rumor that ETS was making headers, but that was months ago.

Its just a matter of time, I'm sure it will be released. They did it for the Brz/Frs. Tuning companies are still in the process of development with the new Wrx platform anyways.

Curious...what was your mechanics reasoning?

I'm sure headers will be release eventually. As for UEL headers, the 2015 wrx comes with a twin scroll turbo so a direct replacement header will probably not be UEL. I can see turbo kits being released without a twin-scroll turbo having UEL headers but not for a direct replacement.

also why would you mechanic advise you to only change the header? Does your mechanic have experience working on Subaru's?

His reasoning is that he has no idea what he's talking about.

No. Not trolling. Think about it, people will pay money to get the "boxer rumble" back

I thought about how much engineering and cost would have to go into doing that and after two seconds realize that is a dumb idea.

Look up twin scroll turbo. Your car has one.... Look up UEL headers with twin scroll turbo...

Return and then apologize.

Is anyone here an engineer? The idea isn't far fetched. Just because you believe it is a step in the wrong direction doesn't mean someone else won't pay money for it. And let's be honest, boxer rumble is why a majority of us love subaru.

No one 'believes' it's a step in the wrong direction. It's IS a step in the wrong direction.

You're*

So educate us. How do you make an unequal length, twinscroll manifold?
