Default EJ205 JDM longblock turbo drain **help/advise please**


I purchased the above longblock from an importer and it appears that it came from a twin-turbo Legacy (I have a 03 Impreza).
My problem is the turbo drain/return into the head. It has hard pressed-in mild steel drains that are completely in the way of my Impreza down pipe.
Does anyone have experience removing these (and what to replace them with)?

You can unbolt and gently heat up the aluminum and the tube will come out, you can then swap it with the head from the car. They are removable but not a part you can purchase new, you'll have to reuse yours or find one that someone can yank for you.
