the wrx and sti y pipe is different. per Subaru WRX Performance Upgrade Parts - Mach V Motorsports maybe the godspeed you have will work with wrx pipes? i would ask the vendor you bought it from he sould know..

Well...

The part numbers I was given from the local dealership were wrong - I even gave them my freaking vin# - but looks like he still got me the intercooler ducts for the WRX.

But nonetheless it seems to mount ok on the Godspeed I got of ebay.

Because the elbow from stylinmotors.com is so long and can be trimmed I'm thinking I may get this to work - I wish I had a single y-pipe but having to send these parts back then maybe pay a re-stocking fee just seems like too much of a pain.

I've ordered a silicone coupler + t-bolts from stylinmotors to connect the gap.

Here's some pics...

1. Gaskets - didn't line up perfect - should I shave the gasket a little to match hole?:





2. Ducts - looks good to me - need silicone coupler + clamps:






3. Top side with coupler to throttle body:




I've read I need to watch out for the AC lines behind the IC - I've read maybe wrap it in something like a radiator hose.

I have all the stock parts needed in - brackets, bolts, gaskets, etc etc - I'm hoping all goes well tomorrow when I try to install this thing.

you have one of the gasket backwards. you have to flip flop and move them around and they should fit i thought the same thing when i got mine..
