Impreza Headers dliema!

I'm lookin into getting some headers , 3 thing come to mind & i'd love some advise.
1-are they worth the price?
2-will i see any noticeable gains?
3-or should i get somethig else first?

Thanks Mark.

they will make a difference depends on how far you are proposing to go??

personally either mildly 'ported' std ones if your sticking around your current mods or we use a lot of Magnex ones which have happily coped to around 400'ish...............

the main problem with a lot of headers is the poor quality and the massively over sized pipework that loses 'spool'..........

Personally wouldn't touch Megan, know lots of people had problems with them (poor quality causing cracking!!!).

GT Spec GEN II Headers are excellent and the way to go. I run these, as does PeterUK300 and they come with the Up-Pipe and Gaskets.

They are more expensive but well worth the extra money. WWW.RBPD.CO.UK is the place to go...

Avoid the cheap ones........you really do get what you pay for. My headers (damn ebay) are in the back of my mates garage!over speed bumps!!!! they hit on the chassis leg, there are 10 bumps to go over on my way to work . I never wanna see em again. I just gutted the uppipe in the end. Lose the distinctive burble as well.....
