Lightbulb STi Intake Manifold on 03 WRX

I searched under a few different terms and didnt come up with much so here goes. My friend wants to know if an 04-05 STi intake manifold would fit on an 03 WRX and what the advantages / disadvantages are.

Nope, you will need a JDM V7 or TGV-less V8 JDM manifold. THe 04-05 STI intake manifold doesn't have the air bypass ports on the manifold that the 03 WRX Throttle body needs, plus the 4 bolts are smaller in size...

u cant use any USDM sti intake due to the drive by wire. you will have nowhere to bolt the throttle cables to..

you can use the JDM verion 7 upper(and lower if u do a tgv delete mod) and a verion 8 with TGV mod

I put what I guess is a V7 STi intake manifold on my 02 WRX. It fits fine... but I gotta say, that was a huge PITA install

I don't see any benefits so far... unless you're modding the hell out of your car, I'd say skip this one... paint your stock manifold red maybe
