That's what I figured Keith. Thank you for answering my question. Looking at the STi engine and the engine compartment in my RS, there looks to be enough room to makes some thing fit If worse comes to worse, a custom made up and down pipe or I guess the cross member could be notched and filled with 4.5" i.d. x .250" pipe cut in half and welded into the notch.
Thanks for the confirmation.

a 93-01 is better than the 02-07
please create a new thread for questions like this
I can cut and weld!
Also, I would have started my own thread but I couldn't since it was only my 3rd post. Besides, is my Q not relevant to the thread? I'm talking about a JDM EJ20 swap. But if the OP disagrees that my questions are not contributing in any way I would not raise a fuss if my posts in this thread were removed.
I came to this thread looking for answers to the cross-member issue and other questions. Most of them got answered (Thank you Supermoose!!!!!) Sm partially answered my x-member Q in his initial posts. I just wanted some clarification on this issue is all. I apologize if I broke any rules.
*This post puts me over the line!!
