SAVE UP and do it right the first time.
You might be better off finding a wrecked USDM STI or WRX and using that as your starting point, as the tuning options are a lot better than the JDM cars ( as least for us in the US) That and you can sometimes re-coup some of the funds by selling parts off the car.
I picked up a wrecked 02 wrx for 2800, and used the drivetrain, interior(dash) and all the wiring in my 1997 OBS. Sold what I didnt use(engine, seats, doors etc) for 4200$. Then bought a V8 ej207, and cant be happier.
