Impreza GC8 2005 FXT swap to 01RS.. Help please!!

I'm doing a 2005 Forester XT swap to 2001 impreza 2.5RS and I need to know what I need and what to expect. I know that 2005 FXT is drive by wire like STI, do i need pedal adapters? Does an 05 FXT have a engine immobilizer like STI? If so, what do i need to get for the swap?

I have the following:
*05 FXT motor
*FXT complete wiring harness
*FXT ECU.
*Turbo cross member

What else do I need from FXT to swap to my car if anything? Help me Please!! Anything you can think of that is a must have for the swap or will make it easyer.

thanks silentt!! Any thing else? is that it?

since I bought the motor harness and ecu some time ago. I will not be able to get those parts from the same car. If I get those parts from a different car will it be possible to reflash or reprogram immobilizer/ecu and key to work with what i have? Also will I have issues using a DBW pedals from a different car?

You will need the Key, Key switch, BIU, ECU from the xt. All must be matching. Yes, you can get them reflashed at your local dealer. But the car wont run until then. Dont forget your power steering pump and lines. Front sway bar for turbo model is different as well. Bracket for the trottle pedal, East Coast Swappers has made the bracket you will need, its 60.00. Trust me, just buy it, it makes things alot easyer.
