Default Swapping wrx motor into 99-00' forester??

im pretty new to the subaru world, (previously had big turbo 450hp srt4) and am looking into getting a 99-00' forester l, and swapping a 02-05' wrx motor/tranny into it. ive noticed some people have done it. my question is, how difficult is it to swap everything over? can the tranny/drivetrain also be swapped into it? im looking to be around 320/350awhp once finished. any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone whos done it already and has any tips or help getting started on it

Here's my personal vehicle.

Everything pretty much bolts in, the Dash is a little additional work.
Search around for any other swap threads the SF forester is basically the exact same chassis as the 97-01 impreza so any swap threads are mechanically nearly identical.
