Default STI red manifold

Will the STI EJ20 red intake manifold fit on the EJ25 engine???
I've heard it doesn't, but I just want to confirm.

Hmm, don't know. I do know that the intake runners for the EJ20 manifold bend differently than the EJ25, to make room for the interooler. I have seen guys just paint them in red, looks pretty cool. I know suberstar2.5 here on i-club painted his red.

Yup...I'm getting rid of the power steering.found a quick ratio manual rack and pinion ..and relocating the alternator to the P/S spot so I can keep my A/C. The I/C core I am using is 30"-14"-4"...Need a big intercooler to move big air Plus it's a more direct flow, and shorter distance to the manifold....Gerry

That's a huge IC core! I'm very curious about the new steering rack though --- I for one am pretty disappointed in the long ratio of the stock rack --- is this an off the shelf part that's easily available or a custom fabricated piece?

It's actually a custom subaru part. It's out of a 92 legacy. The problem is that the legacy's had P/S...I think this rack was out of a Legacy Mail Man car. The reason I believe this is because I got from upstate NY.. and they use Subaru's as mail carrier cars. All I had to do was some bushing work.Any rack and pinion place shouls be able to modify a Loyale manual R&P setup.
Also I tried to look for a new unit at Metric Subaru and there is no part listing for it in any subaru book...

a man after my own heart...i hate people that pull their A/C off to build a car cause it's "weight" sorry i'd rather lose 30 lbs then lose my comfort factor. Manifold looks great gerry.

How much work/money did it take to rotate the manifold around like that. For my 02 RS I would perfer a FMIC also, as to keep the "sleeper" look.

On that engine, just turn it around.....for you, no charge !!

Seeing that is an early 96 EJ20 with the high intake, hope your hood closes !! You may want to consider a 97-98 Wrx intake since the throttlebody chamber is lower.

Looks good, like the polished block. Good luck.

I thaught it was going to be a problem when it was installed but it fit just fine. I actually have a 98 intake standing by for dyno tests.The runners are a little longer and wider on the 98. It is the one that Looks like a squashed "M"...Like the polished block look ..What a pain in the ass, It was well worth it though..Now for polished adjustable cam gears..WooooHooo
