Default help with my EJ205 swap

I am thinking about ordering a 02-05 WRX engine, tranny for my 93 wagon.
I do know know how in depth this swap is. (I.E.) same axle lenths, drive shaft lenths, LSD install(maintain factory rear end or use WRX R.E.)
A walk through or someone to help with it. i am new to the sub world so any info for some locals would be great thanks guys!!!

wiring will be your biggest problem(PITA). you need to decide whether you want to splice the harness from your old car to a new wrx harness, or to go with a standalone unit

I did my own swap, its pretty easy, all you need is about a 20 page print out of the oem ecu pinout and a wiring scematic. give me a call some time and i'll fill you in on your options you have. 982.1573 (derrick)
