I'm not sure if I can help answer this but I can atleast point you in what I believe to a good source of info. Check out the scoobymods site to see if that mod is on there. Hope it is because I wouldn't want to send you off on a search that is futile... good luck!

i had to use a 02 wrx wheel on my 05,

i had to switch out the clockspring/airbag sensor, the signals, and even then the bolts didnt match up exactly..

so it's more of a, at your own risk.

believe it or not they're different clock springs and i doubt it will fit.

I have an 04 STi steering wheel on my 02 Bugeye STi (in Australia).

The wheel was bolt on....no need to swap out the roll connector...only thing I needed to swap out was the airbag plug. Easy to do. Just cut and solder two wires (then wrap in heatshrink tubing). If you have cruise control, that can work too and you can keep the 04 STi cruise stalk.......

The 04+ STi has a 5 wire cruise stalk and the bug has a 3 wire stalk. The extra two wires are for the on/off switch for the cruise. I removed these wires, but if I ever get some time, I may hook the wires up to the cruise switch on the dash. ATM, I just turn the cruise on/off from the dash switch and arm/disarm from the stalk.

With the cruise stalk, you need to switch the two signal wires around (the other wire is a black ground), otherwise the switch will operate in reverse.

Cheers,
Sime

PS> One tip I can give you is to make sure your steering wheel and tyres are completely straight before you try and remove the steering wheel. My friend didn't do this and ended up breaking his roll connector when he put the new wheel on.
