It may be slightly short because the 06-07 WRX/FXT used a smaller TMIC

If I'm not mistaken, the 02-03 IC is WAY different than the 06-07.

The metal Y pipe will not bolt up to your stock IC and the elbow will not reach as Matt stated.

My wifes 05 TMIC is very different than my 07 stock TMIC (let alone my TurboXS now in use, lol.)

I was wrong it won't work. You need one specifically for the 06-07 WRX.

You can get a "universal" 02-07 kit on ebay for around $60. I got one when I put on my STI intercooler. You'll have to do a bit of trimming here and there, but it worked for me.

A word of warning that the silver gaskets that come with it are crap. You'll want to pick up the black paper gaskets from Subaru or a local shop for a few bucks. I had a boost test done at a local shop after I installed it and the silver gaskets were leaking at boost above 15psi.
