Question Borla Headers and GFB Pulley Kit

I was wondering, if i order the Borla header kit for my 2.5 RS do i just order 1 in the quantity or what? i was planning on ordering them from summit racing. and is the GFB Pulley Kit worth the buy or should i get the lightened pulley set from imprezaRS.com? and also if anyone has any info on the power ECU chip i would love to hear it, thanks for any info you have!

The header is a one piece unit. I'm not an expert or anything, but a pulley kit doesnt add any horses, just frees up some, allowing for a little quicker rev. I've been in a couple cars with lightened pulleys, and underdrive pulleys, and it seems to be something I (personally) would not add right away. Not that noticable (to me anyway). I'd spend on exhaust/ intake parts first, then go from there. Plus, I think Subarus have a kinda weak charging system; at least mine does, making underdrives a bad thing.

yea the header is just 1 unit so you only need to order one, i have an unorthodox pully on my car, as a matter of fast i have them on both my cars, i like them alot the car revs a little quicker plus the motor dont work as hard to spin lighter stuff so you will see an improvement,if your worried about the charging system a smaller pully will dim your headlights when coming to a stop but i know unorthodox makes a "stock sized" lightened pully so your lights wont dim. i also have a pro ecm chip in my car and i noticed a little better throttle responce and a little more mid range,due to less down shifting on hills and strong head winds(i have a 1.8 )
