Default North American Header/Uppipe on rhd car?

local guy is selling his aps equal length headers/uppipe for an 2007 sti for a good price, it would be perfect for my track car build. however i have a 1995 wrx, ej20g, right hand drive car. Im wondering if this header/uppipe combo will work on my car? i want to use an 02-07 downpipe, no custom made stuff. I remember reading that the sti stuff wont clear my oil pan. I was also curious if the new up pipe would clear my steering rack? just wondering if anyone on here has tried it. heres a pic of the headers.

I dont know about the aps header specifically but i have researched this issue myself. The general consensus is that equal length headers require an sti oilpan to fit. On the other hand most Unequal length headers will fit no problem.

I have a 4" USDM DP and I had to bang it a little / grind the steering column knuckle a bit to make it fit.

a 2.5 oil pan and pick up will be required..
and...
the GD nose is slightly longer, more distance between the engine and the front frame/radiator some equal length headers won't clear.. no idea if this one will work .. steering rack/crossmember clearance should be fine

dp: the jdm dp is shorter so if you want to do a usdm (cdm) 02-07 dp you will also need a 02-07 catback ..

hmmm. I havent looked into the oil pan issue yet, is the sti oilpan/oil pump pickup a direct swap onto a 2.0L? I doubt theres any way around the subframe issue tho. About the downpipe, i already have an invidia n1 race turboback, i just wanted to make sure this uppipe wouldnt relocate the turbo at all.
