    HELP: 05 WRX Up/Downpipe Part #'s

    Ok, I am going to punch someone @ Subaru in their skullcap for deciding to change part numbers throughout years....

    I've used search, I've found a number of different OEM part numbers that SHOULD be the proper 1-layer metal gaskets, but everytime I send them to the parts department, they send them back saying that they are wrong/dont match the book/dont match my VIN. This has been back and forth 5 times now, and now it looks like I'm not getting to do my uppipe this weekend now because of it...

    Can anyone help me out? Have the gaskets been the same for the past few years, and I should tell them to STFU and order them anyways??

    Any help would be appreciated...

    I would contact Subaru Genuine Parts at Jamie (Subiegal) works there, and always seems to get the answers when it comes to OEM parts.

    Also, would you be so kind as to shorten your signature to 6 lines or less? That's pretty much the rule around here.
