i understand i should upgrade to something stronger but that is not exactly an option right now.
Since you have a 2003 WRX, you would need a 2002 - 2005 WRX transmission only to do a direct swap. I'd recommend the 2003 - 2005 because of the improvements made after 2002. Check around your area, or on here for a known good used replacement.
