Default 2.0 WRX Intake Manifold on 2.5 RS???

Hey guys I have a quick question. I have a 2.0 WRX Intake Manifold for sale here local in Florida and he has a 01' 2.5 RS and wants to know if this intake manifold will bolt on to his motor. Just curious, I did try a few searches but kind of turned up dead ends, and a lot of smart ass answers to others same type question. So any advice or direction would be great. Thanks

No idea just called and asked if it would fit I told him I would try to find out as well, so that's all I'm doing. What does this guy need to make his RS turbo'd. Thanks for the help

Him turboing his car reliably is a large and expensive undertaking... forced induction parts from turbo cars don't work nearly as well as the OE N/A parts on N/A motors.. in short.. it's not bolt and play like so many think from FI subarus to N/A subarus. Older RS's esp the coups are actually some of the only good candidates for an engine swap.. otherwise it is more cost effective to get a factory turbo model.

Understood and will relay this information as soon as possible. Sucks because it will cost me the sale of my parts....
