Default 2015 STi 13.1 steering rack into GC??

So, I've been keeping up with the 2015 STi steering rack swap thread on nabisco, and apparently someone has just completed this swap into a GD STi. So, I'm assuming it could be swapped into an RS using a GD front subframe. Thoughts? Has anyone even thought about attempting it?

Waste of time, don't bother.

Not a waste of time...

Use a 05+ GD subframe and it seems to be nearly bolt in. Make the rod ends shorter like the guy on NASIOC did and it should work great. Also doing something with the lines.

I wouldn't say it's anywhere out of the realm of possibilities.

How about THIS fitment thread for the MY02-04 which bolts up to our crossemember with minimal problem just the steering linkage would have to be changed from the directions and possibly inner tie rods. I'm seriously considering this for next years autocross season.

Orrr rallispec 11.5-1, orrr for like 1/30th the price you can add a 1.5-1 quickener in the column and take your 15:1 rs to 10:1.

It also depends upon what lower control arm you have. GC or GD wagons have a narrower track width than GD sedans, and all the 08+ stuff, so without a more extreme shortening on the tie rods I doubt you'll get enough toe adjustment to be able to properly align the car.
