intake manifold help

I purchased a my07 sti intake manifold a while back for conversion to my 10 wrx. I'm planning on making the swap soon. I know it it just for looks, but I Love the wrinkle red sti manifold. My question is besides the manifold which throttle body would I need as well as any other parts I will need. Any help would be greatly appriciated.

as for the mani its a huge project. your saying you have a USA 07 sti mani? if you do im not sure when they went from 12mm bolts to 10mm bolts with also a different bolt pattern, maybe 07?

Don't the 2010 flow better than the earlier models??? I know the 07's had different TVGs than the 06 and down...

No trucks for me just been in Afghanistan for the last 7 months. Just recently come home for leave. I was told by a subaru parts sales rep 07 mani would fit. Don't know how true it is. I got it new for cheap, just wondering how big of a project it will be. Just love the look. I have seen it done to a g3 wrx. Just not sure what year mani it was.

Well.... If you still have the stock turbo layout you're going to need to find an STI intercooler and a standard layout turbo as well since any intercooler made for the STI is going to have a different type inlet than the newer WRX's have.

Basically it's going to take some custom work to get an intercooler to work, or a new turbo and intecooler.
