Default What manifolds will wrx injectors fit in, AND fit an '01 2.5 motor???

I searched and found that the '99 RS intake will work for this, correct?

I'm curious if any of the newer (Forester XT / Sti) ones work? I'm assuming that you could also use Forester XT injectors, because they are larger, correct? Would they plug into the RS wiring, or are they a different style injector?

Thanks for the help.....

PS - for the record, this would be on an RS-T setup

I got them to fit my '01 manifold. You just need to mildly port where the injectors spray out of. The 99 and 01 injectors are actually the same length, it's just that the 01 has an extra plastic piece on the end of it for air assist. You also need to play with O-rings to ensure a good seal.

Use a WRX upper manifold and STi RA lower manifold. The WRX manifold is much more efficent than the RS manifold. I vote for plastic as well.

You could use a complete stock WRX manifold, and just remove the TGV's as well.

Plus the manifold is shorter lengthwise, giving you more room behind the manifold so you don't have to screw around with the stuff already back there.

If you are getting the WRX manifold, get the plastic one.

No way!!! They make a plastic one? Don't forget to get the throttle body since the RS cable mounts are on the wrong side and won't bolt up anyways. Any idea how much the plastic one costs?

Most of the newer manifolds are plastic, even the new RS's.
