Default 97 leg GT blown motor. hmm, i see a 01 impreza motor in teh corner

So my brothers 97 legacy gt blew up. He got a sweet deal on an 01 2.5rs motor thats sitting in the garage. Ive been doin some searching and realize that mechanically it fits like a glove. just wondering how much trouble im getting into with the wiring, switching from the DOHC to the SOHC. I looked through the FAQs about similar swaps but they are a few years old already, and was wondering if anyone had any updates on how their swap is doing, or any shortcuts theyve learned as far as the wiring goes. I'd rather not use the SOHC but parts around here are hard to find, and we just need it to run.
