Exclamation STi short block users!

Ok so I have had the Sti block assy on/in my car since december, and everything has been great.. until yesterday... I have had some problems with my power steering leaking so I tok my car back in for the 3rd time, to have it fixed... They called me and said that my power steering is fine, and that my PCV system was leaking. I had everythihg hooked up correctly, but there is an extra ven on top of the sti block that isn't on 2.5RS's... There is also a water pipe that runs along the top of the bloack that gets in the way of the crankcase vent..... So after 5 months of my sti block being in the water pipe pushed the metal vent pipe out of the block, and it was leaking oil all over my damn motor, dripping on my exhaust making a huge mess. To make a long story short.. save your self the trouble and spend the$120 and get the Sti cross over pipe (water pipe) it accounts for this, and will save $1400 dollars from a repair shop. I would have fixed this my self, seeing as it isd simple, but I work full time and go to school full time, so MY time is limited.. here is the part number for the water pipe.
14050AA451 I found it at subaruparts.com for $112.24+$11.22 shipping....
alot better than 1400

I just cut and welded my stock coolant pipe, and all is well.
sorry you had that trouble
on another note, this blocks are picky with PCV routing/venting....
