Default Are Forester XT manifolds interchangable with 2.0 wrx?

Im about to purchase pnped manifolds, crosspipe and upipe from a 04 forester XT to put into my 02 wrx. Are these interchangeable? Ive noticed on the grimmspeed site that 06-07 wrx / fxt is a different item than 02-05 wrx/sti/lgt. I dont see why they wouldnt be interchangable but I also dont see why grimmspeed would have them separate .

From Crucial Racing Website:

"These models received narrower manifolds with different bends and they simply do not work as well. If you have one of these models and are interested in P&P&C of your manifolds, please contact us. But do NOT purchase the manifolds below unless you have 02-05 WRX or 04-08 STI ones to return to us. Thanks"

So I believe that you are correct, the difference must be in the oil pan. From reasonable deduction, I would assume that these would work on the 02-05WRX with room to spare. Though, while probably minute, these seem to not flow as well as the early manis. But this is probably splitting hairs.

Cheers,
Travis

Oops, this reference is referring to the 06-08WRX and any year FXT.
