So I'm in an argument on my local subaru forum that in my opinion, UEL headers sound a ton better on our cars vs. EL. Examples below:
BRZ but its the new 2.0l engine that the WRX/STI will have next year. Obviously it has EL headers.
A 2011 that is a great example of UEL vs. EL headers.
The traditional sound was a big reason why i bought my car. Not the only one, but a big one. Knowing that the new 2.0 will likely have EL headers is a big turn off to me. Local forum members are basically telling me i'm an idiot because EL headers are so much more efficient and better for power. All of which I know, but losing that sound is a big no no for me.
