Default header quesions

hey guys, as of now ive got a pretty much bone stock 97 legacy 2.5GT, and me and christian (romoranger) have decided to start somewhat of a turbo project on it... we've got the basics, but was just gonna run his old WRX parts like the up-pipe and down pipe w/ a stock wrx turbo and a new oil pan w/ lik 5 psi or so, nuthin huge but just somtin to get our feet wet i guess u could say. what i was wondering was, whats the major differenced between the WRX and Legacy header or exhaust manifold if u will... we werent sure with whether the up pipe was gonna mount to my exhaust manifold or not, or would i need a wrx header or just a stock manifold. also any other advice/tips would be more than welcome.

Phil

Hey whats up? I have all the parts and am going in on the 23rd to finally get it done. I decided to get a header and uppipe to go along with the turboback so I'm selling those parts above and probably the intercooler too. I'll make sure to post up pics once it's done. Later.

The 2.5 engine has 2 exhaust extractors, that meet up under your floorboards. The turbo engines have one that goes up to the turbo, via front of the engine from left side to right, to join up. If you have gotten a good look at the WRX exhaust manifold, take a look under your Legacy. You will easily see the difference, and why it won't go together.

So it'll bolt up to the engine, but it will hit the x-member?

I'm sure an aftermarket turbo kit probably goes around the xmember ok. But a stock subaru exhaust manifold will hit it, as the turbo cars have a dip in the xmember for the piping to run above.

But, you might be able to find a xmember from a 1st gen turbo Legacy that would work, and swap it out. You'd still need another exhaust manifold too though(IE, while yer at the yard...).
