Talking 1997 Legacy GT w/ '05 WRX conversion

1997 Legacy GT with an '05 WRX complete conversion (not just engine/trans but also ABS, immobilizer, gauge cluster, cruise, etc) and assorted other goodies. I wish I had more time to enjoy it and am thinking about more power!

Lessons learned were that the swap will take longer and cost more than you plan for, & buying a complete running donor car is definitely the best way to go. Wiring can be fun and isn't that hard if you do your homework and take your time!
