My recommendation would be to try and find an STi up-pipe. They are identical to the turbo legacy up-pipe. I didn't have good luck with an aftermarket up-pipe. It even had a flex joint, but I couldn't get it to fit. Not saying the one above won't fit, but if I had a choice, I'd go back with the stock up-pipe.

You're welcome. Hopefully that one will work for you in the mean time so you get the stock one repaired.
