i am throwing a bunch of ideas around and if i buy a wrecked wrx 02-05. and just swap it, it would fix all my bent suspension stuff. anyway is it possible to pass emissions with a FULL swap? can i pass ODBII as a 2000 rs with a ECU and motor from a wrx?

i would assume not but maybe im wrong.

Yes. It's legal to swap in a younger motor and ECU into an older vehicle. Even in California! I can't quote you all the requirements and rules and what not, but You obviously need to "pass" the testing depending on the requirements of your state.

My buddy in New Milford got his 2000 RS through CT emmissions with a 2002 WRX swap so it is fine as long as you keep the OBDII.
