Default Interchangeable parts? 04-07/08-10 WRX

Hello all, in need of a few quick answers from OGs.



I just bought a new 2010 WRX sedan and I'm shopping as any noob is. Which parts, if any, are interchangeable between the wrx models/generations?







My last ride







ie) can STI bovs fit non STI ? As well as exhaust and intakes?

Thanks for the help, fellas.

The front suspension? FSB is different and so are the endlinks.

The rear suspension is completely different, so nothing will interchange.

An STI exhaust requires two recessed areas in the rear bumper cover, but beyond this, IIRC they are interchangable.

WRX & STI turbo outlets and thus TMIC's are different. A Legacy turbo/tmic is a match for the WRX.

My 2-cents.

LGT parts are more likely to be swappable...

there was a thread on this from 08 or so, I was just looking for it about coilovers. But here is what I think I might know..
08+ sti rear brakes work on 08+ wrx (fronts dont)
08+ sti sway bars will work
header, up pipe, down pipe, all years, all the same.
turbo upgrades are limited to aftermarket. avo has good options
if you go with a front mount intercooler turbo options are much more vast.

im on the hunt for the old thread though, i hope i helped, p.m. i might know more...

i dont think there would be any benifit to swapping any of the above listed stock sti parts with yours.. im pretty sure the intake is the same, and exhaust except for some minor things.
do you have a goal to keep your parts oem?
