Default 01 forester notched crossmember help

So last night and today I "notched" the hell out of my crossmember but the uppipe still won't bolt to the manifold properly and ive grinded the head down quite a bit too.

its a ebay wrx manifold/uppipe and the fitment just seems impossible lol.
the manifold's flange is in such a ****ty location. I feel like I'm in such a ****ty situation right now I feel lost and stuck. I can't find any info anywhere about the sf5 chassis I don't know what turbo crossmembers will fit and it just seems impossible to even source one.

I can probably torch the uppipe and somehow bend it to make it work but my crossmember is still chewed I'm surprised it's even holding with how much I cut out.

if I bolt the uppipe and manifold together first then I can't get the manifold to bolt to the head on the passenger side.

Since the pictures I've cut out even more and it still doesn't fit. Can anybody please help?

GD WRX engine subframe would bolt right in. Can't say it will give you the clearance you're looking for as eBay parts are hit and miss for proper fitment.
