STI hood scoop on 04 WRX

Would a non-06 STI hood scoop be a bolt-on for a 04' WRX?

If you're talking about whether or not a hoodscoop from an 04/05 STi, fit on a regular 04/05 WRX, then yes, it's direct bolt on. I installed mine in about 10 minutes.

'02 & '03 STi hoodscoops can be swapped with '02 & '03 non-STi hood scoops.
'04 & '05 STi hoodscoops can be swapped with '04 & '05 non-STi hood scoops.
'06 STi and non-STi hoodscoops are identical.

2002 -2004 are identical bolt patterns so you could swap between those years but for an 06 to an 04 im not too sure on id check with a local subie dealer

'02s & '03s are swappable and '04s & '05s are swappable, but you can't swap a hood scoop from a '04 to a '03 or a '02 to a '05.

Yes a 04 STi scoop will fit an 04 WRX. I did it to my 04 WRX. It looks so much better IMO. The one trhing i would recommend if you do this is to modify the splitter. At first i left mine alone. On the highway you could see the hood lift as air would get caught in the scoop. I modified the the angle of the spliter so it would reach the scoop. Now there is no more hood lift and there is more air passing through the intercooler.

So a 2004-05 WRX or STi scoop would NOT fit a 2003 WRX non STi? Is it possible with any simple modifications?

I have a 2003 WRX with the OEM tiny mail slot scoop now. I like the look of the 04-05 WRX OEM scoop because of the slightly higher more point-y look. I don't prefer the OEM STi scoop over the OEM WRX scoop from the 04-05 gen because of that odd snow shovel-y bulge on the sides. The 04-05 WRX scoop is a good bridge between the two. If I cannot swap to a 04-05 directly for my 2003 WRX sedan, then Where could I get one that looks the same but fits??!! eBay has been disappointing me lately in the way of body mods as all of them are JDM STi scoops. NEED ADVICE!!

The scoops are different. You can't swap them. You can't even change entire hoods either since the headlights are fairly different. You'd need to swamp most of the front end's body panels. Note that can be done though, it's not even that challenging but if you don't have a friend willing to change his 04-05 look into an 02-03 look, you're in for some serious cost of parts. Also you probably would have to repaint.
