Default Newb Help

Hey guys i've been searching forever but can't find concrete answers..

Basically i have a 99 S model & it has a bad exhaust header i had it welded but the noise is still there since it's a double wall pipe i hear the inside pipe rattle upon acceleration..

so my question is will this header bolt on to my car? any help is appreciated also which model car can i order exhaust parts for that fit the forester because it seems to be slim pickings,thanks in advance

It sure will fit, but you want to buy it from these guys:

Best Deals on Tsudo 97-05 Subaru impreza 2.5RS EJ Header W/ downpipe

You would be doing well by wrapping the header/cat pipe with some DEI Titanium heat wrap, but mine are unwrapped and it's ok. Couple this setup to an 04-07 STi catback (would need to be professionally installed) and I think you'd be real happy with the sound.

The replica's (like the Tsudo) generally outlast the Borla's and don't crack because they are made from a heavier (and less expensive) metal. Thus, in this case, a heavier, "inferior" metal is actually better.

Actually, order from these guys and use the discount code "CNT204" for $50 off and you already have free shipping!

Then throw out all the gaskets and get some OEM ones!

Alright fine you win haha.

I have the eBay Borla replica header coupled to the Tsudo high flow cat pipe, an STi midpipe and an SPT axleback. I was more happy with the full STi catback, the SPT is pretty damn loud for my taste.

+1 for the gasket replacement too, Grimmspeed or OEM.
