Save money, take your splitter out, cut it and modify it to fit your hood scoop exactly, gives you the same results. Or you could buy a JDM sti splitter.

I installed an Sti tmic and kept my oem hood scoop on my wrx hood, and then combined 2 wrx splitters to make a custom splitter. Pop rivets are the bomb. Used garage door seal an foam blocks to seal. Took a long time and lots of handwork. pics:

An 06/07 splitter will not directly bolt onto your 02/03 WRX hood or fit into your hood scoop. Your better off buying a JDM hood scoop and splitter and having that paint matched. There's plenty of people running STi motors or STi tmic on their 02/03 and running the stock hood scoop and splitter. I'm sure you'll be fine...
