Oh and I also used silicone glue to glue down thick washers to the skid plate as spacers. I believe there were 8 total main mounting bolts. This pushed the plate down a few more mm's

Thereís only room for one header. Thatís likely your issue.

Stock ones right side came out the front, left side came out the rear. Im going to say fairly easy and can be done in your driveway



Plus 2lbs lighter off the front of the car!

Can't wait for a review on these.

I adjusted the aluminum under-tray with a hammer but after few kms of driving I realized headers rub against the subframe when I turn on the engine (engine moves slightly to the right side), when I accelerate from stop, and at high speed left corners.
I think also overpipe rubs the front sway bar, but may be is my idea as the space between those two was no more than 1cm, can't check it now due to covid19 lockdown.

My question is are the STI engine mounts and Whiteline gearbox insert enough to solve the subframe (and overpipe) rubbing problem or should I buy harder mounts or what else?
I had similar issues with mine touching the under tray and sub frame under certain conditions very similar to yours. After hammering a little bit the under tray it stopped touching there, but still on the sub frame. Later on I found out (going back to stock front and mid pipe) that my custom exhaust was too heavy and contributing in the engine shifting more when cornering (specially) to the left. After swapping my custom front pipe and mid pipe for the OEM ones I stopped having rubbing issues with my Ace350.

Maybe you catted Berk front pipe is a bit heavy? or you mounts are about to go?

Hmmmm...this was in my mind, to gut and fit the OEM frontpipe in place of the Berk HFC frontpipe, exhaust flow and AFR will not change at all!

It's 100% because you have mounted more than one header.

If I wear pants, does that mean more than one pair?

It means precicely one pair, and I'll just ask if you know what the word "pair" means?

You are wearing more than one pant.
You are wearing two pants. One pair of pants.
