Hello everyone. 

 

 Just got done moving my High Compression EJ251/EJ25D hybrid from a '96 Legacy Wagon into a '98 Outback. Along with it I put in a JDM import 5mt from an '05 Legacy GT Turbo wagon. 4.11 end range. This motor and this transmission makes a perfect ride. All except for the fact that the exhaust manifold is in contact with one of the steering rack hydraulic lines. Rattles like a woodpecker jack-hammering the side of your house at 0500. I'm assuming the heat from the manifold will not be good in the long run. This was not a problem in the '96. What gives? Are there taller/shorter exhaust manifolds? Are there any super thick exhaust manifold gaskets that I should be aware of?
