It doesn't make as much of a difference as people say. I have heard multiple cars with them and yes it lessens it but it still sounds like a subaru.

02 rex is gone.
I defected to an evo :)
Evo is gone :(
Now I got nothing.

I was just reading discription about the perrin equal length headers...
and i notice that it requires an oil cooler from 02~05 wrx models...

Why would they require an oil cooler for equal length headers?

With that mod and a smaller turbo you will lose some of your low end TQ but the gains above 4.5K will be nice

I dunno about that but I think you need the STi pan.
Perrin's to much damn money. I'd go with Gruppe-S headers. They're ALOT cheaper and very good quality. They also have HP gain's, proven.

Sounds like BS, why would you put an 02-05 oil cooler on headers designed for an 07?

Why would changing headers, require you to put in an Oil Cooler ??? I really dont understand the connection at all ??? Are the headers really going to heat up that much??

its a clearance issue, the extra tubing to make it equal length gets in the way of the oil cooler

I would think an STI oil pan would fix most of the clearance issues
