Exclamation Intake manifold HELP !!!

Ok so I have had this manifold off for a while now and have I done the TGV delete, installed bigger injectors a 255lph fuel pump, a 16g turbo, and a new turbo inlet( ebay junk i suppose) but i am having the hardest time putting the stupid thing back on, i cant seem to get everything lined up,

I am seriously considering taking it up the road to a local Subaru tech to have them put everything back the way it is supposed to be, I think i might have gotten myself in to deep this time. but before i go and spend my hard earned cash on a tow truck and the mechanic, does anyone have any little tricks i can try, or does any one live close to me who would like to help i can supply pizza, beer, and even pay you for your help !!! i just really need to get this car put together soon,

I have been using my GF's car for over a month and a half and I just really want my baby back


If anyone is seriously considering helping me put this nightmare back on

I live close to Northlake Mall I will even pay your gas both ways.

Could you be more specific as to exactly why it's not going back on? Pictures would sure help a lot. You didnt really give any information about the problem other than the fact that you can't get it all lined up.

I'm sure more people would chime in if you could add a little more detail to the problem.

its not that hard man.. you should at least try and have another person help you before you spend all that money. if i remember, make sure that harness near the the turbo inlet is going over it, not under it. clearly somethings in the way

I had trouble sticking mine on with a cheapo silicone Ebay inlet. I'm guessing you are getting hung up on something on the passenger side. Could always remove the turbo so you don't have that in the way and watch for the coolant lines that go to the top tank, one of them has to be fed through the runners otherwise you wont be able to push the manifold down.

I had some frustration putting mine on but if you have two sets of eyes on it and 2 pairs of hands it goes a bit easier.

Thank you for all the input I am going to give it one more shot tonight and take some pics also but yes it seems to be getting hung up on something on the passenger side.... I would prefer not to take off the turbo again... I was told by a master subie tech it should just "slide " back on easy so we will see

If you got it off you should be able to get it back on! Try following an DIY for the manifold. This may help clear some things up.

Sounds like the turbo inlet or fuel lines are getting caught on the power steering hard line. +1 on having a second set of eyes and hands but I have done them several times by myself. Take a step back and look at what u could be hitting, try lowering the passenger side down first at an angle.

The hose up on top on the pass side goes to the tubes on the front of the ic.
