Can you put an STI's Intake manifold on a 08 WRX? (direct bolt on)
Advantages?
Disadvantages?

I am looking to do this because i found a good price on a used one and am looking to get an STI intercooler anyway because i am upgrading my turbo to the VF 52.

Thanks for the help guys.

I probably should have posted the date that the manifold is coming off of. It is an 04-07 Manifold.

If you are dead set on getting a STi manifold/intercooler setup, you would be better off getting a vf48. Otherwise, if you are dead set on getting a vf52, you would need a compatible intercooler and you would keep your current manifold. Just so ya know, MY08+ WRX intake manifolds can handle plenty of power, why exactly do you want the STi manifold?

The vf52 is a direct bolt on to your my08 wrx. No need for an sti intake manifold.

*You will need to be tuned for it though.

placing an STI intake manifold onto an 08+ WRX would cost a bunch of money and offers little to no benefits.
