Default EJ22 single port with turbo crossmember?

I have a '99 OBS, which I'm looking to but a 2007 STi crossmember into. The thought here was to preemptively swap crossmembers for a swap down the road while I'm switching out all the other suspension stuff (specifically after the STi control arms and steering rack).

The concern I have is with the N/A exhaust... I was looking under the car this weekend comparing crossmembers and I'm not sure there will be enough clearance to run the standard headers underneath the turbo notch without interference. Anybody have info on this? Would an aftermarket UEL header solve the clearance issues? Are there other ways to solve this besides a custom header of some sort?

I did this when I was slowly swapping my 96 gf wagon. You cant just put the header back on you actually have to cut it and lengthen each exhaust runner to make it work. But it is far easier and nicer to do when the exhaust is off. I say do it and enjoy.

Thanks for the info! I also have heard from others that a UEL will clear the crossmember as it runs under the opposite side, avoiding the turbo's dip. I bought a UEL anyway so we'll see in the next few weeks if this all works out!
