So you are using an 06-07 WRX pan on an 03 WRX to clear a different header?
I looked up the parts on www.subarugenuineparts.com
for 2003 Impreza WRX.
pan 02-05 $66.93
pickup 96-05 $23.27
baffle 95-05 $16.45
Then for the 06 WRX
pan 04-07 $79.27
pickup 06-07 $19.08
baffle 06-07 $7.83
From this it looks like the baffle and pickup are different too. I couldn't find the dipstick on there, and the oil pan doesn't seem to be listed correctly for the 06. I think they are listing the STi pan.
I would do a little more research before you start the car with the new pan. I'd go to the dealer and check the parts for sure including the dipstick.
