    Sure, but my point was that to say "I wouldn't waste my money on headers" as it sounds like a souped up honda is not very good advice. EL headers can be a great upgrade.

    I guess it depends on what your looking for in h.p. / performance gains...I like the low end torque and power, my car has the Cobb Stage 2 map installed right now...I am not saying that headers do not make an improvement in the higher power band area..but they are very pricy for what you get out of them..

    Well, another option is the Grimspeed setup...
    As far as gains, 3rd party unrelated Subaru owners have seen ~15 whp/wtq gains, most notably in the low and mid range. You should also expect to see quicker spool up time.

    Another vote here for changing it ASAP!

    I changed mine recently and it was indeed starting to fall apart.


    I swapped it for a TurboXS. Fitment was great with no leaks:

    Wingless alas. Too bad it took a 50 ton truck to make it happen.

    Sorry to revive an old thread. A quick video I did on the Resistor Mod for anyone having a hard time with it.
