VF39 will fit, intercooler will need to be upgraded. Not 100% sure on ancillaries like injectors or fuel pump.

The cat's usually on the Mid & down pipes I thought, so if they've replaced the cat its likely they've put a full TBE on? Which would mean it's been tuned already?

And if you're spinning all 4 wheels in third, I very much doubt you've got the stock turbo...

First thing to do ASAP is find out if the ecu is tuned for the exhaust, the 06 wrx have problems with untuned engines that have exhaust and/or intakes on them, if driven for too long or driven hard untuned the engine can melt
