In the same boat here. Best I've found is going to the CARB resource site and poking around: arb.ca.gov

Bottom of the page is a link to the aftermarket parts database. If you list by 'device' and sort by manufacturer, it's pretty easy to look up the brand. Bad news is pretty much only things I saw for impreza's were a few CAIs and maybe a catback. No headers , cats, etc.

Good luck. Post if you find something I missed, or find I'm just plain wrong.
