That sounds pretty nice! Where'd you buy it from?

I found it on japanparts.com. It's a bit pricy though

Nice! That is my favorite knob for the Subaru. I have it for my GD STi and couldn't be happier.

Got the exhaust installed yesterday/ today (sorry no cool pictures since I was too busy and it was balls cold by Texas standards). Spent today checking for leaks. I will point out that the mating between the Cosworth/ Nameless header and the JDL overpipe/ frontpipe combo is a bit difficult. Also found the whole V-band clamps strange. I do need to adjust the overpipe portion up slightly as it's hitting the sub frame. As well, the donut gasket that came with the combo pipe is... well odd. I also suspect a leak from it but I have the bolts tight as can be. Drove the car around a total of 30 miles and didn't throw a CEL, so I'll see if one appears in the coming days.

Tuned the car via ECUTEK with the Cosworth Stage 1.3 tune that I requested from @Matt@Cosworth. I'll get some logs to make sure all is well once I have more free time and it's slightly warmer.

Happy New Year!


Sorry to hear that you had fitting issues. Keep us posted and if you see any considerable differences on top end in comparison to the '+17 stock header and stock tune.

I plan on adjusting it later this week when it warms up a little bit. Shouldn't be too hard of an issue to fix!

Ya know... as time goes on all I seem to hear and experience myself and from others are problems with the nameless/Cosworth components when it comes to welds and fitment issues. Really is a shame.

Things seem to be coming along for the build tho!

Outside the header, I cannot comment on the exhaust. I figured Nameless made quality parts so I'm not sure what the whole issue was with them. But I did like the Nameless headers I had on my FRS so I wanted to get them again so that I could take advantage of the Cosworth stage 1 set up.

I left the headers on my FRS (like a moron) when I traded it in but found someone on the forums who was selling the proper Cosworth manifold for a reasonable price.
