I don't believe so. I know an 01 will fit an 01-03, not sure about a 98

Nah, it won't fit. The grill, header panel...nothing will line up. If it did, I'd do the swap on mine!

everyone has said that it is direct bolt up. i have heard that at the corners of the grill it is a little funny but not enough to matter... if it was that big of a deal then tons of people over on rps would not have done it.

watch out for the hood on ebay... its still gonna end up costing you about $250 to get that hood... check your local j/y you can probably get a better deal.

Depending on how bad the hood was on your Splash -- swap the scooop'ed hood onto the Splash, paint that one -- and do something wild with your Silver beast's hood from the Splash.

That scoop'd look bad-butt on the Splash!
