Should be the same if memory serves. I have a V6 JDM STi Type RA 5 speed transmission and I believe the clutch kit I have is from an 02-03 USDM WRX.

This is a thread I started a while back asking about driveline swaps. Towards the end, FryphaX states that a clutch kit for an 02-05 WRX will fit the bill, so yes, an 02-03 WRX clutch kit should work.

Trans starting with 752 is what the USDM 02-03 WRX came equipped with. USDM 04-05 WRX transmission codes, as well as JDM cars began with 754. Ultimately it doesn't matter - all years use the same clutch kit. They're all for 2.0 L turbo engines. Again, 02-03 WRX clutch kit should be fine for your vehicle.

If you check PNs on Rockauto and choose Exedy, for example, 2000 RS calls for KSB04, wheras 02-05 WRX calls for KSB03, so go with the WRX not the RS

on the other thread this guy said
you all have missed the barn as OP has Suretrac R160.

If the transmission ## starts with 752, you can use all of the 2.5RS clutch set. While you're at it, you can swap out the shift fork and Throw-Out bearing with a 06-07 WRX which is stronger
I just found a resource saying that the usdm wrx(02-03) comes with a ty754 trans as well.

would you happen to know if a 2.5 rs flywheel would fit an ej 20 g?

A 2.5 RS flywheel will fit an ej20g. But the 2.5 RS flywheel is NOT compatible with a WRX clutch kit.

All flywheels made for any EJ engine Subaru will bolt to any other EJ engine. But... You have to match the flywheel to the clutch kit.
