Maybe Duel headers? He needs to call around and find a local exhaust service...

I have a set of headers up for sale. Could probably just not put the ypipe on, get it custom finished to the back?

You want the Y pipe. Only 1 O2 sensor on the V6 that manages both banks.

UEL normally means UnEqual Length. Its a subaru thing since hey have an offset exhaust and the block is set symmetrically around the fwd/aft center-line of the chassis. its the entire reason they sound like detuned weed wackers


side note, they do make equal length headers for subarus and every time i hear one while driving it weirds me out.

Interesting... makes sense. Thanks for this!


So, what does it sound like, with equal length headers? Like a "misfire" off?
