Fits: Subaru Impreza 1997-2005 2.5R EJ engine
Fits: compatible with Stock OEM or Tsudo aftermarket Catback
Note: This downpipe included with this Headers removes the OEM catalytic converter, which will trigger a CEL (check engine light) because of increased emissions. In this case, CEL fix is included to avoid 98% check engine light to turn, but the light does not affect performance.(some vehicle might need oil relocation kit)
Note: Revised with Flex Joint
Product Type: Stainless 4-2-1 V2 Race Header Version 2 with down-pipe
The UEL Headers/Midpipe came exactly as described in only a couple days. Awesome quality, no damage in shipping.
I took off the old headers and installed the new ones with no issue on an 06 Subaru Impreza Outback Sport Wagon. However, there were no O2 bungs on the headers. Instead, they are on the midpipe, meaning O2 sensor extensions are required (on my model at least). No big deal for my purposes. Unlike other reviews I've read on headers, these required no prying, pulling, or forcing. They just slid right on.
The midpipe attached flawlessly to the header, but wouldn't fit into the hanger clip. Again, no big deal. If you have any mechanical knowledge, you can make this work The included gaskets and bolts were great for the exhaust. I re-used my old bolts for the headers.
Overall, awesome quality. Such a deep, aggressive sound. Very inexpensive for the end result. 4 stars because of the clip fitment issue and O2 bungs. But to some (including myself) this is easily a 5 star product for the cost. Robert S. on 4th Jul 2016
Bought this exhaust on a Monday and by Friday it was in. When I opened the box I was astonished at the quality, especially the N1 exhaust. Haven't installed yet but should be a direct fitment. The can is absolutely massive and will earn you lots of street cred! All in all it's been a great experience working with semotors! Jbullz on 7th Dec 2015
This product i purchased for my 03 forester and it fit well and easy. i got no check engine lights, and installation was easy. sounds great, and i can say the butt dyno noticed the power gain. acceleration has gotten better, and the deep boxer burble produced by these headers always puts a smile on my face. i highly reccomend these! paired it with the tsudo n1 cat back and it sounds awesome and definite power gains.

The headers fit awesome, touches the oil filter a little but nothing a little relocation kit cant fix. The sound coupled with the cat-less midpipe and catback is phenomenal, and extremely loud, absolutely love it. The only reason I don't give it five stars is I had a lot of problems getting the midpipe flange to seal to the catback flange, neither doughnut nor flat gaskets would work, ended up bending the pipe inside the mid pipe flange to accommodate a doughnut gasket with metal sleeve, wherein the sleeve was over the pipe inside the mid pipe flange forcing the exhaust to go through. 454 chevy big block manifold gasket, sealed like a boss. Never thought I'd have a chevy part save the day on my Subaru. Kanaan on 25th Dec 2013
I ordered these for my 01 forester.. easy install and they were at my front door in less than 3 days.. my foz sounds so great now and is straight piped all the way out the back.. it's one of the best mods I've purchased and I have recommended this to the subie forums I am part of. Great product. Jason on 7th Dec 2013
