Question yet another swap question....

i have the oppertunity to scoop up an 04 sti complete engine. im just looking at my options at this point. I have an 02 bugeye wrx with 100k on it so it might be time to upgrade. I did some research and found this link. http://www.elementtuning.com/V8%20In...%20Install.htm. According the this i can use the long block with my intake manifold and throttle body along with swaping out the knock sensor and repositioning the cam senser to the driverside head so i could use the wrx engine harness. Also using the sti cam gears and cams with no AVCS. From what I understand the AVCS oil feed line also provides oil to the cam shaft. would that mean the the cams are running fully advanced all the time with the AVCS being inactive? Is that healthy for the engine? I was curious if anyone out there has done the longblock swap and if they had any issues with it. Your insite would be very helpfull!
