Default 02-07 turbo inlet on 08+ wrx

So ive been looking around on different forums but i cant find a straight answer, but would a 02-07 turbo inlet fit on a 08+ wrx (plastic manifold) without much modification?

Buy the right product for your car and not worry about it.

Based souly off of Perrin's website the 02-07 turbo inlet will also fit the 04-2013 STI which is not a surprise. They are designed specifically for that setup. Being said, the 08+ WRX and 05-09 LGT have a fairly different intake design. (As stated already) Just by looking at it, I can tell the OBVIOUS difference of nipple layout. Most notibly the BPV hose location. Could you make it work? Potentially.... Would it be smarter to buy the part for your car? Absolutely. Note that all turbo inlets are essentially the same design/layout, so stating which inlet you are trying to rig up MIGHT help. But then again doing the obvious research yourself would save you embarassment.

ive compared the two inlet pictures to each other and noticed the little differences i was only trying to maybe save some money and get one used since the 02-07 are all over the place on the classifieds and 08+ are more rare and hold more value right now, but im sorry for the embarrassment i brought upon myself.. i was merely trying to see if anyone else has done it before i go rigging up my car again.

The length and the location of the pcv ports are different. You really want to get one specifically for an 08+
