Default 02 rs - 03 wrx

Hey, so im tackling the swap. Ive got a ej20 out of a 03 wrx.
I have searched and not come up with the answer to my question:

I know using a usdm wrx turbo cross member works, but will the older turbo legacy's cross member work? I know i have to shim a wrx cross member, but i just plain dont know if the legacy one works. all the info i have come across lists it as a popular install on the older gc model rs's.


if so, anyone know what year turbo legacy cross members work?

Do you have a legacy crossmember already or something? I didn't need to shim the wrx crossmember on my car.

what about if i got a complete dash out of a 02 wrx, with bulk head harness? that should be a straight forward bolt in, gd chassis and all, and then a plug n play with the ecu

right?
