Maybe someone else will chime in to confirm this as well.
You should have one. Subaru part# 21311AA051 for 02-07 WRX and 04-07 STI.

The forester thermostat housing just might have a nipple for another outlet on it and might fit. I don't know this for sure but Its a thought.

The bottom of the some water pumps actually have 2 ports in it one for the engine and one for the oil cooler on the other side.
I know the one that was on my old EJ205 was like that.

Here's some pics of what my spun bearing came out as well.
Not sure if yours looked as bad as this.

Again not trying to sound like a douche by any means, but make sure you follow the manual on how to correctly take the heads and block halves apart...

Motor is torn down. Havent split the block yet, but on cyl 3 i can wiggle the connecting rod where it connects to the crank. I ordered manly pistons, h-tuff rods, and king bearings along with a killer b oil pickup and baffle. Anyone know the difference between an sti oil pump and a wrx one? they look the same but have different part numbers. Once i split the block ill see what kind of condition the crank is in, and probably have to order another one.

When you do crack the block don't be surprised if pressurized gas gets released. When I cracked my block a few bolts hissed at me. :-P
And just curious how many extensions you broke so far. Went through a few of them myself.
