Default Planning on purchasing a 98 2.5RS and swapping in a JDM STI Engine.

Hello all,

First post here! I am currently about to purchase my first real project car, and I had one simple question to ask you pros.

The car is a 1998 2.5RS with a blown motor, and I found a nice JDM 1996 STI front clip with 60000KMs.

Now, I know absolutely nothing about JDM motors but please no "You don't know what you're dealing with, so don't do it." kind of answers . How else am I supposed to learn lol.

I won't be doing the swap myself; I have already found a very reputable mechanic who has done this many times in the past. I won't be able to speak to them before the 26th so I thought I should ask my question here first.

What I'm clueless about is... When I want to do some simple maintenance like change the oil or spark plugs am I looking at having to import these simple routine parts from Japan? Or are they the same as any other 2.0 Subaru?

Probably a silly question but better safe than having to wait a month for an oil filter lol.

Thanks for your help!
