Default 2.0 to 2.5 swap

I'm new to the site and did some searching but I'm still a little confused about it. I have a 98 legacy gt that I did a jdm swap in myself and didn't have any problems. I'm looking at buying a 2002 impreza 2.0 turbo that needs and engine and tranny. Would it be possible to do a sti engine and tranny swap in it? How close are the mounts and also would there have to be a lot of fabricating. I'm 16 and a senior in highschool and I'm going to school for this and have been for the last 2 years so I have quite alot of mechanical knowledge. I'm also on a bmw pit crew so I could fabricate some things. Also would I have to change ecu's? Sorry for all the questions I'm sure some of them sound dumb. Thanks in advance. By the way the site looks great.

You can put almost everything from an STI on the WRX!! Search around, theres a lot of people who've done it....

BTW-Yes the ecu has to be changed, watch out though. MY05-and up STi's have an immobilizer so the ecu wont work without the immobilizer, original key, and a whole bunch of other stuff!!

Everything is basically plug and play..best thing to do is buy a totalled sti and take out all the parts that you want, sell off the rest, and put them into your shell..but as far as fabrication, there really isnt much necessary. best of luck man.

zero fab skill needed but you have to watch out for the imobilizer in the 05 +

if you just found out a totaled 04 sti .. thats a great stating point ..

yah thats what I've heard. Hopefully the place will sell it, they sell cars with salvage titles that are rebuildable but they also sell parts from their warehouse so hopefully I can talk them into parting this one out.
