Have you decided on a header manufacturer yet? Once that is decided we can move forward regarding the selection of a pan/pickup if need be.
I can tell you this... If you go from a WRX 2.0 pan to an STi (or 06+ WRX, Legacy GT, Forester XT) oil pan you WILL need to change the pickup too. The baffling is different, the angle of the pickup is different and the depth the pickup goes into the pan is different.
So let us know what header you decide on and we'll go the next step
