    '14 WRX equal length header

    Hi all, I'm curious to see if anyone is running with an equal length header on a relatively stock car. I currently have the stock exhaust with the muffler cut out and a y-pipe and straight pipe installed in place of the muffler. I am looking to purchase an intake and Cobb AccessPort. My question is if anyone has driven with an equal length header and minimal modifications? I'd probably end up getting a catted downpipe but I mainly would like the equal length header installed for the sound. I love the way it sounds and it definitely sets a Subaru apart from the huge amount of others in my area. I would get a protune of course, but I'm curious about this. Any input is appreciated, thanks!

    Well I guess my car is relatively stock (have yet to swap injectors or a turbo) The reason I installed ELH was for the performance gain. I'd go for a downpipe first cheaper and more performance gains. You may also not like how your subie sounds with ELH, you will lose some of the subie rumble.

    It should be just fine, and long as you tune for it. Downpipe is more "bang for your buck" performance wise, but that's about it.

    id say mine is relatively stock. i got the GT spec EL headers and i love them. quick spool and a nive power bump too. inside the car i dont hear a rumble really. but you can on the outside and with the windows open. its actually unique now, doesnt sound like everybody elses subaru, but doesnt sound like anything else either. i love it!
