read through and look for specified major components.
Also read down on repairs made outside of a Subaru facility.
Hope this helps.

If not, at www.Autohausaz.com, they are selling a Bosal cat, part number WO133-1842851 on sale for $366.44, that fits your 03. Their ad says that the Bosal unit replaces both the front and rear cats. Bosal is a good name in exhaust products, so I would trust their product. I am confident that it would perform well on your car.

Back in 2003, Subaru was saying Bosal = OEM. See bottom of page 19 (not marked in PDF, but between 18 and 20 ) of http://www.endwrench...ngineRepair.pdf .
