Default 05 STi+ Dash into GC

I'm like REALLY thinking of getting a GC with a swap, but honestly I hate the dash on it.

Now, I want something like
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...php?p=24476816

Its a WRX Interior, but just the newer dash is what I'm interested.

1. Is it a perfect swap or will there be issues?

2. Is there wiring merging that must be done?

3. If answer above is no, is it easy enough for me to noob to install?

Thanks

You may want to PM the guy that's selling that GC (in the FS post you linked). He'll be able to give you some first-hand information about this swap.

I'm not sure about the whole wiring thing, but the actual dash itself fits in fairly well. Where it doesn't fit so well, IIRC, is along the sides where it leaves a bit of a gap. I've seen enough threads on here with swaps that it shouldn't be hard to find the info.

Edit: The owner didn't do the swap himself, but had one of the local shops here in CO that does probably 80% of the Subaru swaps do it for him. They're called Suba Performance and have a great reputation.
