Default Dip stick issue

Got my new 2.0 running and installed the APS header, they said to switch to a STI oil pan so the header would fit, now when I check the oil it does not read on the dipstick! I got the new pan, pick up and dip stick from Subaru and had them check my order and said it is correct, anyone installed the APS header and have the same problem? Thanks

if you got the sti dip stick it should read fine, if you have a wrx, it will read like its at the lowest level, if you dont get anything, then you dont have anything in the pan, all it is is a stick that goes into the oil, unless you mixed somthing up somewhere

thanks for the reply, I did not mix anything up unless my local Subaru sold me the wrong dipstick. I changed the oil yesterday and put in 5 quarts and it still does not read on the stick. I will go by Subaru to check to see if my stick is correct, thanks

Wrong stick. STI oil pan is a necessary mod for EL headers.

Does your dip stick have a hole that you can loop your finger through to pull it out? If so, it is the 2.5L dip stick. If not, you have the 2.0L stick.
