Post Unequal Length Headers

Many people enjoy Subarus, some for the look, the AWD, or just even the rumble from the unequal headers. I'm just curious if anyone has been able to get UEL Headers on accords. I've seen videos on YouTube of civics, and s2000s with them, but I was just wondering if it's possible to get on for an accord. I think it would be a crazy add on.

+1 for "huh?"

Unequal Length Headers are, by design, less efficient than equal length headers. In some cases, they are required for Subarus and other "boxer" (horizontally opposed) 4 cylinders due to packaging space requirements. I won't go into detail, but it has a very large deal to do with scavenging and cylinder exhaust pulse.

Why would anyone want to replace an equal length header for an inline 4 with an unequal length is beyond me.

Like I said, I was just curious, but I didn't say there was anything wrong with the normal equal length headers, I would only thought to change it to UEL headers just to recreate the famous "subaru rumble"

What is Subaru rumble? My mom's Outback doesn't rumble. It's a heap-o-****.
