Impreza WRX Motor Swap

Have a serious question for you guys and gals that no what you are doing. Is it possible to swap out my 02 WRX motor for an 04-07 STI motor? If it's possible, what kind of project am I looking at? Thanks All.

So was it that bad? I want the power of the STI but I don't have nearly the budget that it would take to buy one, then fix it up from there.

well to pay someone to do it it can cost 13k+ usualy 6-9k for parts and a garunteed 5-6k labor depending on who does it.


and yes it became that bad. its slowly redeming itself.

If it's the power you are after and not the status, just do a shortblock swap and get whatever turbo you want and get a tune. It will save you thousands. And Cobb offers an Ej257 shortblock with different pistons just for the EJ205/EJ257 hybrid build to keep the compression ratio correct and give you good combustion performance...
