Hello,

I am considering an EL header/uppipe combo for my '07 FXT. The choice is between the MadDad (wrx sti exhust) and a Tomei (02-09 Tomei Header + Up pipe Kit [Tomei193082] - $800.00 : Fine Line Imports), I'm leaning more towards the Tomei because it's proven to make power. Supposedly, it requires an STi oil pan, do we have one? My tuner has one on his FXT, still checking with them.

Anyone running either of these, any input? Appreciate any help.

Stan

No one is running EL headers on this forum anymore? I know there used to be a few people. Hmm..

I purchase my forester Sti with EL headers installed. Brand: "Syms" from Japan.
Despite there was no boxer rumble anymore I got a nice mid-top end power.
Now I have the stock manifold installed. the stock manifold gives you better spool-up but DEFINITLY you loose top power.
According top the road-dyno plot maybe ~15whp lost.

cheers!
