    if the pipe is bad, plan on a 2 1/2 hour repair.
    Did mine today- just needed the bracket, and was done in 40 minutes.

    Since the 09's and STi's have different turbos, doubtful the design is exactly the same as the 08's TD04.

    Sounds like the 08 owners are just getting shafted left and right. First they produce a big step up the following year, then they make your car blow up.
