Default v6 sti swap?

i have a 03 wrx and am wondering how well all the subaru parts realy fit together? i was wondering if you could drop a v6 sti motor in my 03 wrx and be able to hook up all my wireing to it and basicly just use the block and heads. would my valve covers bolt up? stock wrx cams & springs fit?
it just seems like a cheep way to get a forged internals.

thanks shane

V6 eh?

You cant directly drop in an sti motor without changing wiring/computer. You can however use a 2.5L block with your 2.0L heads and not change any wiring. Its called a hybrid setup and you should check out the built motors subforum

JDM swaps tend to actually be cheaper than hybrid setups
