Have you looked into DIYing a set from a factory equal length Y pipe?

I've looked into it last week. Google image search something like "Subaru uel DIY" and follow the images to the forum page they're on to get details etc. I call this the research phase.

So I'm going to have a stab at it hopefully using a Kate's welder and hoist etc (because he'll let me and it saves me from laying under the subi!

Plus there's nothing to lose, they can't look any worse than this:



Stolen from here which is a good place to start

Cheers

Well it was done today. Looks sweet.

If you do DIY it, one thing I'd want to do differently is cut some length from the factory pipes just after the flange that bolts to the head. This would tuck it up a little better/more for my liking. Since this was a mates rates job my mate left it as it was - I didn't want to argue the point

The note with our exhaust setup (twin stock cats, lukey rear muffler) is subtle but now sounds like a subi should :D

Cheers

Advanced headers make a set of UELs, they are based in Adelaide
