Default Q: 02 wrx heads vs 05 wrx heads?

Are the 02 heads the same as the 05 heads with the exception of the shimless buckets on the 05? Are the valves themselves are the same, so that i could use shimless buckets on the 02 heads? Thanks in advance.

valves, springs, retainers, keepers and buckets are all interchangable. I'm almost positive they are the same casting too.

Yes they are - I've swapped them around before.

Did the Cams change much? I used my 05 cams in the 02 heads and one fits a little snug even when no lifters are installed.
