Im looking for a set of good headers. is ewg anything i should consider with stock turbo?

I want to stick with unequal length

UEL only? Stock or Tomei

Tomei ELH, but I'm biased.

Don't think you need to consider an EWG until you get a real turbo, but that's just based on what I've read of those who know a lot more than I

Funny every ELH boxer I've heard in person sounds nothing like a n/a inline four

ir2005 01-08-2013 09:02 AM

I was just wondering about the ewg I know a few people that have them and didnt know if that was worth it.

A local lgt has tomei elh and his sounds like a civic in high rpms. and is raspy just like this video.

crappy cameras are crappy

But hey if you want to leave some performance on the table for sound, I'm not going to stop you. :)

ir2005 01-08-2013 09:16 AM

I want both as you can tell. I just dont want a loud rasp like i showed and camera could be to blame.

My car isn't raspy at all at wot. That's with a Tomei elh, catless dp, and Gms catback.

Stick with the stock manifolds and enjoy "teh rumbel mang" on the cheap. There isn't much to be had from UEL headers, especially on the puny stock turbo. Get yourself some louder mufflers and call it good. Hogzaust will get you your rumble for cents.

My exhaust now is 3 inch from the turbo back to 2 little resonators for "mufflers". I didnt know if headers would be worth it.

fahr_side 01-08-2013 09:35 PM

3" catback is also overkill on the stock turbo, but at least it won't cost you any spool or lose you any torque.

Srsly don't waste your money on headers if you want to keep the sound of inefficiency ... aka the subaru rumble.
