Do I really need to purchase this hose or can I use my XT hose to install the STI TMIC?

Sorry it is for an 04 XT.

It depends on what year FXT you have. Add info to your signature so it is easier for people to help you.
I didn't search your part number and am assuming it is the BOV recirc hose.
If you have an 06-08 you can use your stock BOV hose.
If you are 04 or earlier you need a STi or 06-08 FXT hose.
If this isn't what you are talking about, provide more info so people don't have to work hard to help you when you don't search.

^^^Agreed! With that said if you have an 04/05 then yes as well as a WRX/STI BPV (they are the same no matter what any one tells you about their ability to hold pressure better).

Sorry, I left that bit unclear.
You will need a BOV and hose from either an 04+ STi or 06-08 FXT.
I don't personally know about the WRX fitment but generally speaking I've found that scubadoober knows his stuff.
