well, if you have a stock WRX "header"/exhaust mani on there right now, there is no reason why an after market one won't fit that is designed to be a direct fit for a WRX

^^^ It will be a direct fit like it was a WRX, since you've got the WRX crossmember installed.

just remember this wont change the crossmember issue. If you have DOHC heads, and a turbo crossmember, then the WRX Header *should* work.

Did you happen to buy equal length or anything outside of the "factory" design??

no factory
i needed a 1/16th inch spacer + the extra gasket needed while using a spacer to make it fit properly

im sure if i had access to different thicknesses of sheetmetal i could have used something just a little bit thicker for a better fit however, i was limited to stock on hand

I have modded legacy turbo manifold/up-pipe so I know I would have to change the up-pipe. I was just wondering about the manifold itself.
Thanks White
