I think as long as you can something like tomei or GTspec and above quality wise you won't have to worry about it. As long as you don't wrap it or ceramic coat it, I don't think it's a problem. If you're really paranoid about cracking you can go for the killer B EL headers which is warrantied for life even if it's ceramic coated.

I was like you too, I wanted to keep my boxer rumble, but EL headers is better for the car by evening out temperatures in your cylinders, and you make more power. I honestly didn't notice or miss my boxer rumble afterwards.
I actually talked to a buddy of mine recently and he sold me on the EL headers. He said that we are too old for noises it should be about HP and I think he is right on that one.

Well, a CEL was thrown and the TGV is stuck closed. Planning to install IAG TGV delete and Perrin's Turbo inlet as a result. I will have new tuning results for the forum once the updates are made.

Meh, whatever makes you happy is what it should all be about.

FWIW my car sounds better with Killer B headers than any UEL Subaru I've heard...

I fell in love with the sound and look of the the Killer B headers, but they hurt the bank a bit.

Adding on a Cobb SF Intake w/ Airbox as well... A bit hot and bothered by not doing injectors, but was able to buy the intake brand new for $100 less than normal.
