Default Crossmember change without removing engine. Possible?

If I use a hydraulic jack (those that u use for swapping of gearbox) to prop up some part of the engine.....

Will I be able to remove my crossmember and swap it for another one without disconnecting the engine from the gearbox?

Currently running the turbo crossmember + stock WRX everything.

Having problems with the turbo inlet clearing the block so gonna swap back to the NA crossmember + custom piping.

So is the WRX header setup really better than using the stock NA headers?

Seems like alot of people giving me conflicting views on this matter

i dont think its that so much, as it would just be poor factory design to run under the xmember, then back up in the back. We do this in AFI because its relatively easy, and we can re-use our stock manifolds.

However, if you do the Turbo Xmember, you leave yourself open to use aftermarket headers that are dyno proven to increase power, and reduce lag.

If you have RS heads, you should be able to use turbo Xmember w/ WRX manifolds, but I would use an aftermarket one if possible, as the cats are very restrictive. invidia makes a beautiful one for only 1100 bucks .
