which header

Post by __TT__ »

So looking for a bit of an upgrade to some motor parts while its out.

I have a 22t with 98 2.5gt n/a dohc heads. I can't remember which stock headers I've been using.

I'm thinking any 02-05 wrx aftermarket heads right?

i should also add I'm going to a td05

I suggest sticking with the stock exhaust manifolds since they retain heat better. Some of the cars got more "equal length" type collectors. The newer WRX's may have a similar design/setup. This is what I am using.

I'm running a Tomei wrx UEL and love it. Might lose heat to stock manifold, but does pull better in mid to upper rpm.

Just my two cents.
