The TGV plates were removed by the previous owner, and upon reassembly the car started throwing a code for the bank 2 sensor. I tried reseating it, but it didn't go away. Since they're gone, I'll just flash them out.

ahh, and what was up with the oil pan? I know sti headers won't fit because of it, are you gonna just return the pickup or get a sti pan? I want to know if I swap the pans will the 255 headers still fit

The big issue for me was the Killer B pickup I bought. The pickup was advertised by a vendor as supporting all EJ25 turbo pans, but the Forester EJ255 runs the same pan as the EJ205. I wanted to use that pickup, so I bought an STI oil pan, dip stick, and tube. One funny thing to note is that the WRX EJ255 comes with the STI oil pan, only the Forester and maybe the LGT EJ255's have the EJ205 pan.

The car already came with an STI header/uppipe combo, which the only difference for was the lack of a pre-turbo catalytic converter. Running aftermarket headers, however, would require the EJ255/257 WRX STI pan.

So you're swapping your FXT drive line into your Impreza? Isn't the FXT a CANBUS car, or is it a normal harness?

Oh, so it's the same as the Impreza pre-08 EJ255/257 harnesses? Sweet. At least your FXT will have given a lot to your Impreza, I hated seeing that thing go. Your journal was one of the main reasons I have mine.
