Default Power steering pump/reservoir swap?

Hey, so I have a 97 JDM Forester EJ20 engine & the power steering pump is like this:


but I want to put in an aftermarket Tomei turbo inlet because I have a larger turbo going on & you can see it really squeezes to a small area on my JDM inlet. However I don't think the Tomei will fit with the JDM power steering reservoir in the way. I notice on a 02+ WRX the pump doesn't have this reservoir here? Where is there's? Is it possible to swap pumps from mine to this one with a bit of work?

I'm sure it will work if you just grab the WRX hardware. Make sure to snag the pump, lines, relocated reservoir and mount if it is different. From what I've seen, most if not all EJ blocks have the same mounting holes for the accessories.

Ya I was thinking it should too, does anybody have a diagram or know where I could find one of the power steering system for the EJ20 WRX? From the picture I can't even see where the reservoir is & I'd like to compare how the lines are run vs my own.

Looks like the reservoir is right behind the headlight with the yellow cap. The high pressure hose may be the same. I would just find someone parting one out and buy the hoses to the rack, pump, reservoir and low pressure hoses. Should be everything.

Ohh, ya that does look like the reservoir behind the headlight, maybe I can meet up with somebody who has a WRX so I can have a look, in person it might be easier to see. I wonder if I can just get a custom made aluminum reservoir and run some hosing to it.

the fluid lines are completely different, you will need the pump, lines, hose from pump->tank, and tank itself. there is also a bracket that bolts to the frame that holds the tank but you don't necessarily need that

I like this thread. I don't have any plans for a bigger turbo but my inlet pipe has a slice in it right at the turbo end and I've been looking at replacements. such a pita though with it being such a tight space. a wrx pump/resy would be a smart idea. also I don't know whether the pumps would be different but it looks like the regular 2002+ impreza's p/s system is the same as the wrx. so if that widens availability of used parts, then it'll be that much easier to find
