Check your local forum. The easiest way that most do so is to swap the trunk as a whole.

That aside, if you search, there are templates for the wholes out there.

You know you will have to drill a whole pile of holes in your trunk lid, right?

Trunk trades are great, but it is super hard to find the trunk and wing combo you want sometimes... I've been looking for 7 months and no results so I think I'm going to buy an sit spoiler online that will fit the wrx holes. It looks exactly like an STi spoiler just lighter so it fits the 4 wrx trunk lid holes. It costs about $300 including getting it painted your colour. I really like the look of the STi spoiler but I don't know myself whether it's worth that extra $300...

Try asking around at body shops in your area. They might charge you a lot less to weld the wrx wing holes and repaint.

Check the private For Sale threads. STi trunks show up from time to time in exterior modification and car part outs.

I found the best way to mount it at perfect center and straight the first time was to first make a template. Turn your spoiler upside down and have all the mounting studs in the right place. Find a thick sheet of construction paper or thin cardboard at least the size of the spoiler. Line it up over the studs and evenly press down to penetrate the stencil with the studs. When it's all punched out, trace the contour of the spoiler's base and trim off excess...now you have an accurate stencil with all your stud holes and you're able to center the template on the trunk lid and drill your holes.
