Default Need some help on '04 2.0 going to 06-07 2.5 engine and tranny

Ok, I have the basic gist of things but I need some hard files so I can materialize this in my head.

Breif description of my luck:
My buddy was involved in a wreck that was not his fault last year. Totalled his 2007 STi. It got the frame. Point blank, he gave me a screaming deal on his engine and tranny and I just sold my 2.0 today to make up some of the cash I will need to buy the parts off of Jeff (my buddy). SO I have access to the engine, tranny, driveline, wiring. Although I will have to buy one of the left side axles because it got busted and a rotor and I am not going to use the STi wheels because one took a bad hit and the ADR's I have on my car are 5 x 100 and 5 x 114's.


So basic story told, I am doing a 6 spd and 2.5 swap from an '07 STi into my '04 WRX. Can someone point me in a good direction of a thread detailing the complete swap, or at least an outline? I am an Auto Tech, so I am not dumb, but "Mitchell On Demand" (parts and labor online estimator) doesn't go into this great of detail. I have access to wiring, PCM, obviously engine and tranny. So, fellas, help me out here and if you are local I will let you drive it when it gets completed. I'm looking to do this in the next couple to few weeks, mainly because the fella that bought my engine today is waiting on my to pull it out of my car.


Thanks for being a great community.

One questrion for sure I need answered, is that if I swap the PCM out of the '07, will I need the immobilizer stuff to go with it? If I wanted to use the Stock PCM out of my WRX, is there any downside to doing it that way? Please give me some help fellas, I was trying to do the swap over the holiday weekend as I am off work.


Help please?

I guess I must be invisible. I looked up a lot of threads by a lot of people on this subject and I am begining to wonder if it is even worth all of the trouble to do the swap. I have access to all of the parts, but I really don't have anyone but me and my brother that could dedicate time to getting this done.

Can someone either talk me out of or in to doing this?
