Default HELP w/ Installing a STI TMIC on 04 WRX

I tried to install a 05 sti tmic on my 04 wrx and ran into some problems. I did get the sti y pipe with the TMIC.

I'm having problems with the fit. I read some other forums and understand I will have to make a small bracket for the passager side, but the Y pipe still seems to really stretch to fit and also the throttle hose seems alittle short, but works. Is this normal. I could e-mail pics so people could help me. Please just PM with email address and I will send the pics.

Thank You, I really appreciate it.

I didnt have a problem installing an 04 sti on my 04 wrx. I took off my perrin hoses and the hard pipes and they all went on.
Link us to some pics of your problem, you can create an account for free at photobucket, then just paste the links.
I will try to help you out. BTW the same hard pipes and hoses also fit my Ebay TMIC, so I have used the same setup with 3 different TMIC's the pipe tp the TB was a royal PITA, but I got it on.

The problem you have is normal. This topic has been covered numerous times. The STi trottle body is different and it sets back farther than the WRX. Some have been able to get it to fit with out any mods but it's normally a PITA. The simplest solution is to get longer hoses. There is a thread here with all the info you need to get the correct size hoses. There is also a thread on Scobymods on how to modify the brackets (but getting the hoses is easier).
