Finally got burble!


Recommended Posts

After my already beaten up exhaust snapped at the second cat I decided to get everything apart from the backbox, uel instead of el headers.

I don't drive quick anyway, even if I wanted to (2.5 NA) so weren't bothered about loss of power.

Never driven a turbo car so luckily for me I don't know what I'm missing and happy with my slow legacy :)

Really pleased with it, still got both cats and stock style mid pipe but after years of owning this car and people thinking its a Toyota it might be recognised as a Subaru!

The stainless steel manifold was only around £150!

When I did my up-pipe, used this stuff:

Even made the downpipe bolts come off without issue!

Hi I think only 2 nuts came off on the inside end of the manifold, the others were seized but was alright because the bolt itself would come out with the nut in place, so just treated it like a bolt :) one nut came loose later, but I just compared where it was meant to be with another bolt then put another spare nut in beside it to lock it in place

Comparing the bolt holes with the old exhaust, would be good to check if they line up, if I had to do it again I'd spend a bit longer to find something to wedge inbetween to hopefully make it easier to fit.

Note not all are like that, I knew from reviews this particular one the holes didn't line up but for the price couldn't complain :)

RE-done some heat wrapping as reused the old one when fitting the exhaust as new one hadn't arrived yet :)

The old one had rips etc when removing several times, it had melted part of the rear of the plastic skid guard :/ parts of the exhaust that were covered now has a nice blue tint to it though :)

going to do a bit more soon :)

Where did you get the manifold? And do you think I can do the same with a N/A Forester (MY2000)?

Hi that's what I got, from the US, think people refer to them as borla replicas.

They advertise for imprezas but for my legacy they went straight on, only thing is the 2 ends need to be slightly more apart for the bolts to line up.

Could go to a breakers but I saw somewhere these are more unequal in length and stainless so might as well.

If you are anywhere near Norfolk could always have a look at mine
