    ^^ Not in the slightest. Took longer to get the OEM set-up out. Had to break off a piece to get to out, as per directions. Perrin slid right in. Believe what you will it was cake.

    I've done it. I agree on tearing apart the OE one. The Perrin one looks like its easier to squeeze in than my Gimmick. Still not a worthwhile mod unless the OE one is ripped, IMO.

    ewg?

    I was replacing my turbo and it just seemed like an easy time to do it. A buddy of mine had an eBay one on his car and said the Perrin was a lot easier as it flexed a lot more. I'm not certain there was any gain from it as I pretty much threw everything on and got a tune immediately, so I'd have to take your word on that. I usually only suggest the mod when someone wants more turbo noise and is thinking BOV...lol

    Correct. It sounds more like a Porsche.

    IMO, ELH sounds much better. The "Subaru" sound is the sound of poor design and inefficiency. Porsche had it right to begin with.

    If you have boost creep (due to a catless down pipe, most likely), the EWG isn't much of a choice. Given that it costs more than the down pipe, it should be a consideration when choosing the down pipe. If you don't have a down pipe yet, I'd recommend one with a flat flange over a bellmouth if you are going EWG. You won't be utilizing the bellmouth portion much with the IWG blocked off... but that bellmouth does make it a biatch to torque down some of those bolts with the EWG in place.

    It'll give you much faster boost control at least.

    It comes down to what you want to do.
