holy fire hazard batman, you need some heat shielding in there stat!

also where did you get that UEL? My outback sounds like a honda and I don't like it. I just upgraded from a 90 lego (avatar) to a 97 outback and am waiting to put a pipe on it until I go UEL :headbang:

get a lil flapper valve like you see on tractors. rain will collect in the exhaust otherwise.

What kind of fuel economy are you getting. My exhaust is similar less the stack, having the cherry bomb in the mid-pipe and a borla replica header. I am getting 15 mpg, that is 7.5 gallons to 105 miles when i filled up last.

Yeah my 15 mpg was regular grade 10% ethanol. I went with mid grade this time, i will see if that helps. I might have to make some sort of baffle for the tailpipe to help the torque.

If none of that helps, i would probably be best to go back to a stock header, or get cams.

the last 95 legacy i got averaged 18mpg with stock header and no muffler, hollow cats, but it ran so rich it would sting my eyes.
