It's my first time so...

I've got a 03 Subaru Impreza 2.5 RS automatic. Owned it for almost 7 yrs. I was kinda getting bored with auto. So I got me a 02 wrx wagon that I won on a auction I went to. Front end damaged but motor was okay. I was wondering if I swapped it in my 03, what else i need besides the motor and the trans?:help:

Need: the drive shaft, rear differential, axles, pedal set
Can swap over if you want: brakes, seats, suspension, basically anything that unbolts and is in better shape than on your rs, think of it as swapping the wrecked body instead of swapping the engine and trans lol

Do a search for the swap thread. It will tell you everything that you will need. For starters, you will need engine, transmission, driveshaft, rear differential (not sure if the WRX and RS of those years were different) the front crossmember along with the complete wiring harness from the WRX (bulkhead, engine, etc...). Since you have the whole car you can do a dash swap so you won't have to worry about any type of wiring merge.
