I also what to know if this is a common problem.
Allso do subie turbo's crack often?, i have 2 with cracks by the little flapper valve thing, cracked in same spot on both, 1's EA81 other is EA82.

I'm sorry you misread as
this would not cause his turbo to loose exhaust pressure.
The turbulence could disturb the spool rate though.
This is the reasoning behind a twin tube down pipe (see below)
Subi guy, I have seen this problem created by the mounting
bracket that is connected to the engine/bellhousing
missing or out of alignment.
The mount under the tranny and the one mentioned above
must keep the connection at the flange from being stressed
as the engine rocks under acceleration.
Might want to also check the dogbone (pitching stopper) as
it is what limits this rocking.
Being an exhaust fabricator
Why not make yourself one of these?

I could build you a exhaust like you want but I would either have to have a subie like yours to build it on, A "donor" like we call it at my work or I would need your old exhaust to build off of. That would be the only way I could build it right. The only subies I have myself right now are my 89 GL 10 and a 78 Brat. Neither has the ea 81 like your so I imagine it would be kind of tough to build one without the right stuff.
i have the same problem with the stripped holes on the cylinder heads where the exhaust bolts up. Heli-coil to the rescue for sure. And it sealed up perfectly!!! I am glad someone invented a way to repair threads. Hey subieguy have you made a custom header for an EA81 that doesn't have a cat and instead just a collector??? I would be interested in having one......
