    I can't say for certain, but I'll bet there are clearance issues with the firewall since the RS has the 2.5 and the WRX has the 2.0. The exhaust connecting points are the same for both, but I can' swear as to hanger locations. Engine related obviously won't be the same due to the block size differences and NA vs FI.
    Looking to upgrade eh? Good luck!

    Just find a seller that makes them for the STi and call them to ask if they will fit an RS. These should bolt right up. Also, the new 06 WRX has the 2.5 liter, so there is bound to be support for them anyway. And I'm pretty sure that before the WRX came to the US, there was decent support for the RS due to it's popularity with the autox crowd. Just check with the advertisers on this site and look at the vendors that post in the vendor forum. I'm sure you'll find something.
