Default Turbo inlet location (Using turbo x-member and WRX up-pipe)

Hello to all....

Im working on a custom turbo setup on a RS2.5 SOHC engine and decided to go the route of using the turbo GC8 x-member and a custom up-pipe designed for the WRX. From what I have gathered....the above will bolt on nicely enough.....which lead to the my question below...

Anyone here who have done the above have issues with the turbo inlet being too closed to the intake manifold? (Currently planning to run a TD-05)

My mech was commenting that the turbo might end up sitting too close to the intake manifold till the extent that I might not be able to extend a metal piping out to fix on an open cone air filter.(Think inlet mouth of turbo kissing the manifold) I will be running an old school legacy RS water to air cooler with dimensions similar to the old slanted style air-air units.

Pics will be appreciated of turbo location of those who have used the turbo x-member + wrx uppipe. I just want to find out if I will have any clearance problem with the turbo various inlets/outlets using the combo

If in the unfortunate incident that it really is just too damn close. I will have to go with a custom piping job which in turn translate to $$$....

You will have to run the turbo inlet under the manifold for easiest pipe routing... but this will require to get a few other parts (WRX power steering fluid pump/resevior, etc.). The inlet for the turbo will point just as if it was on a WRX...

Somebody correct me if there is a better way.

Nope...cant do that...
Inlet manifold for SOHC different from the DOHC one...can't bolt up to SOHC heads...

To run the inlet under the manifold....only DOHC manifolds can do so...

Yes you can. I've seen more than one RS (with RS intake manifold and SOHC heads) with piping that way. I'm just not sure of what parts have to be replaced to do that (PS pump, water crossover pipe, etc...). If you use stock WRX piping (header and uppipe) there is no room other than going under the manifold.
