does a WRX manifold even fit an RS? I am also interested in this idea... what other manifolds are interchangeable...

I.E. will the 1.8L mani fit the 2.2? Reason i ask this is because the TB on the 1.8 sits way farther forward and would give me more intercooler clearance.

IIRC a WRX manifold will only fit a DOHC head.

So in other words it won't fit my 99? where is the fitment issue? Need to know soon. kinda in the middle of making a deal to get throttle body, fuel rails, risers (STI or something) and the manifold. I want to put an APS TMIC someday and i know it won't work with my stock manifold. Let me know soon please.

it will bolt onto the head, but the tb cable holder is on the wrong side, its kinda a pita to fab it up at first, but once you get it down its fine

rock on. Will my stock throttle body work on the W's manifold? and is there any advantage to the W's throttle body?

not without modification, and you cant run the wrx TB because the iac and tps are different (although you could rewire the tps plug to work, the iac is different)

Is this why most people go with FMIC instead of TM's when they get bigger turbo's for there set up? kinda wondering if i should get it or not now. kinda lost at what to do. and will WRX (aftermarket) injectors fit in my manifold? and i am also planning on using a Halteck E6X so would the wiring really be an issue?

Pass on the manifold. There are too many issues to making it work and too little to be gained. The SOHC EJ25 intake manifold is the achilles heel of an NA build, but with a turbo pushing the air through their you manifold is plenty big. Spend you precious dollars elsewhere...

Would PE650's work in my manifold? If not, is there something out there around 600-700 that would work?

stock wrx injectors that have been uncapped flow 740cc's average and fit into your 99 manifold.
