Post Engine Crossmember Swap (NA->Turbo)

I need to prod at the minds of those who have swapped out the standard NA crossmember for a turbo crossmember; either EJ22T or EJ20T. What kinds of complications am I going to be looking at? While installing my cams, I did notice that the steering column seems to go through the crossmember. How much trouble is that going to give me? Any hints or tips on this install or is everything self explanitory once I am under there taking things apart?

Thanks
-Jon

Anybody? I know somebody has done it? How about you WRX swap guys? There has to be atleast one person that has swapped their crossmember.

No problems at all. Your steering rack will have to come off and then back onto the new x-member. Its a bolt on.

Are the bolts obvious once I am taking stuff apart? Any tricks on the steering rack or is it straight forward?
