I don't see why not... If they're equal length you'll probably see a bit better spool and def. get some mid-top end punch. Just make sure you get re-tuned after you bolt them up.

+1 to the above said. Especially the tune part, or you really wont get much out of them. Keep us updated if you go through with the purchase.

Yes they will. Another inexpensive option would be getting your stock ones port and polished. You can keep the rumble and see pretty impressive gains. That should only run you 300 or so with a good thermal coating. Check out crucial racing or grimmspeed for that.

You will lose the rumble. But there are great gains to be seen from the above mentioned route also. You would just need a tune for it. Check Grimmspeed out:GrimmSpeed

i had equal length headers before and the sound was not as much like the stock boxer sound but by no means is it like a honda. it sounds almost like its a slightly camed v8 or at least thats what mine sounded like. i didn't see much gain and lost some bottom end but i didn't have a tune for the header.

since ## running a larger turbo, u will see some extra horses coming out but not too much. like everyone said, equal length = more power but lose the rumble. Gruppe s actually makes a lot nicer sound difference than other brands. i compared my ebay and megan racing to my frends HKS and his gruppe s(all unequal). Gruppe s has a louder, deeper rumble and u can still hear the turbo whistle at low rpm so ull hav that to look forward too. oh and tune = more power. dont forget heat wrap
