Thats exactly what you must do...Take the Entire Legacy harness out, drop in the entire WRX harness, splice all your components to the WRX harness, and remove all excess wires...The WRX wire harness is alot longer than my 2000 RS wire harness...I ended up hardwiring everything...There are no longer plugs that go to the doors, they are all wired directly to the main loom...The ABS sensors have to be wired up, the Windshield Wiper motor is under the cowl of the WRX and on the RS, its in the engine bay...The headlights are different on the WRX, so those are hardwired...Again, all plugs on your car's components stay attached to the component, you take the appropriate wires from the WRX for that component and splice it in...Soldering is the best way but I used Crimp on connectors and made sure all connections were very tight...I have pics but they suck...I need to get them on North Ursalia's site for reference and I hope it helps a little at least....
