Its hard to tell the early one in 2012-2013 had problems

also locating the maf sensor so close to the throttle body can cause issues.

Best header?

Definitely notice the power difference.. I think for the price of OFH you can't go wrong.. I had a Tomei EL on my STI and that was also a nice piece..
Thanks for your reply eh! Yea I keep leaning more towards ofh. Does the car smell like exhaust fumes ?
