I am in the process of swapping the 15 STi rack into my 03 wrx, and also upgrading the 08+ STi power steering pump. I have been talking to T-37 as well, since he's local.

Some information for the 08+ STi power steering pump (P/N: 34430FG040), you won't be able to fit it into the 03 wrx bracket, but the good news is that the 04+ wrx/sti bracket will work.

NOTE: For 02-03 wrx that want to use the belt cover, you will need to order a belt cover bracket and bolt for the 08+ sti pump. Not sure about 04+ wrx/sti one.
Belt Cover Bracket: P/N 34446AG020
Bolt: P/N 010406200

Here are the pictures between 02-03 wrx and 04+ wrx/sti bracket:

08+ STi power steering pump installed on the 04+ wrx/sti bracket:

Pump installed on the car (my car has rotated setup, might be an issue with stock location turbo with the turbo inlet in the way):

Note: Do not use teflon tape for any line connection, I removed the teflon tape on my final connection setup.

Here are some pictures of my final installation:

I also took a picture of my friend 04 sti. There seem to be a small dent at the elbow of the stock inlet that might clear power steering connection line.

Hope this will help someone who's planning to update to newer 08+ sti power steering pump into older 02-03 model and as well for 04+ wrx/sti.

I also found some inserts online that let me able to use my wrx inner tide rods, will post some information soon.
