Yes. Most (all?) BP/BL Legacys are twinscroll. I have a set of the headers off one in my garage. The headers are slightly lower diameter than the STI ones, and have a different flange at both ends of the uppipe.

4th gen onwards are twin scroll. Smaller extractors than the sti ones though.

Legacy twin scroll headers are what's on my car.

Gen 4 2.0L turbo Legacies are all twin-scroll turbo

38mm headers vs Impreza 42mm

Different flange and up-pipe bracket iirc

Prone to running bearings and turbos

Cool, thanks.

 

So the ID of the Legacy pipes is smaller than the WRX/STI?

You mean the headers used on the vf38 crap out or the motors and turbos crap out?

VF38 turbos only came on the 03-05 EJ20X (automatic) Legacy's. 03-05 EJ20Y Legacy's are TD04. Then 06 is VF44 for auto & manual, and VF45 for 07-09 auto/manual.

Correct, marginally smaller.

 

Apparently good to ~380wkw, but that's kinda internet mythology. I'll be running them with my baby BorgWarner, looking forward to the reliability and awesome heat shielding of OEM parts :)
