I haven't seen any dimensions on the 08 compared with the 04-07, so I can't say whether it would be worth the trial.
I just did a quick count on the rows of fins in the 2008 STi intercooler.


Compared to 34 rows on the 04-07.

I overlayed the two in photoshop and scaled them accordingly. The 2008 STi intercooler looks to be ~2in wider than previous years, or however wide 2 rows of fins are... (I'll measure and post up...).

There are a few cutaways showing my older 04 intercooler so you can see where they line up/etc...
