This might work on an Sti which has a wider track, but there wouldn't really be any benefit to it.

So, now I'm looking for a '04-'06 rack :P
You're going to run into a similar issue with the 04-06 Rack. (the 04' sti rack has the quicker steering ratio, but uses the older style 93-04 mounts). Any 02+ Sedan is going to have longer inner steering rods than your RS. To remedy the issue you'll need to swap in Sedan drive axles, STI control arms and Sedan front struts.
