Default thought on this swap?

looking for another day rider and wondering what people thought about this as far as ease of the swap, questions to ask (eg: full harness swap vs splice and year engine from the wrx (as I understand it, the engine size 2.0+, rather than a particular year in which changed to a turbo on the wrx)?

- I've already got 2 Hayabusa's so "get an sti" isn't what I'm looking for, but thank you.

ps: I will update the rest of the information once I get my hands on the car.

The Post:
VERY CLEAN RS. I buy a lot of wrecked WRX Subarus. Once in a while I come a cross a low mile car I rebuild. I decided to do WRX Turbo Swap with this car. Complete Motor Swap, ALL Stock with the exception of the short ram intake. Just passed Smog. New Goodyear tires.
This is a salvage tittle car which had light front end damage. All safety and lighting systems working and inspected.
If you are looking for performance with low insurance costs this car is it.
65k original miles, asking $6k

- Thank you all!


edit: 04 motor (2.0) so it does have the turbo if I am not mistaken.
complete harness swap (check plus)
trans had 66k, engine swap was with 71k miles.
has put 1k miles post swap and hasn't heard or felt any hickups so far.
state inspected :-)


looking great so far - price seems reasonable too
