Default 2006 Sti engine into a 2006 2.5i

My friend bought a crashed 2006 sti, but all of the engine and transmission components are untouched. I also have all suspension and brakes. Well in other words I have everything except the sti body. Can a engine swap be done? and what do you guys recommend?

Short answer, YES.

I'm currently swapping a 2004 STI engine, transmission, and interior into my 2000 2.5RS. Read like crazy, and you'll learn.

God if you swapped it and put a nice discreet front mount on it you would get sleeper of the year

for the guy above, subaru and sleeper dont work.. big gold brembos even if painted black you have to run 17s, you can hear a turbo spool and so on and so forth

to the OP yes you could more or less just swap it all into your car, but if anything is to ever happen to your car you are out money for the whole swap since the thing is brand new, id rather go out find an old rs and do the swap into that

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy an STI?

technically no if he got that crashed car for cheap, and than like most people with insurance and blah blah blah they get charged less, thats where what i said comes into play if anything happens to the car they are out the large amount they put into the car

So in this case a swap is the way to go. Just plug and play right?

Nothing wrong with a TMIC painted flat black to help hide it from view from more than 10 feet away.

The cost for a 2006 sti here in PR is about 36,000 cause we pay other municipal taxes that apply to cars.

engine, transmission, axles, ECU, brakes, front and rear diff, steering rack if it's good, suspension if it's good...

the 2.5i steering rack is a little slow, people were wondering why I was palming or feeding my wheel at autocross... it's just not as quick as the STI steering rack.
