Question 99 subaru rs swap to ver 5?????????

I have a 99 2.5rs 2 door and I have found a STI version 5 engine tranny rear diff and I was wondering if there was anyone that has tried a similar swap and has any tips or problems to look forward to. Any feedback will help.

Do: if you use the V5 engine use the V5 transmission, rearend, etc...

Don't: slap the V5 engine with the RS drivetrain...it wont last long...believe me I tried it lasted 6 mo untuned and 2 weeks tuned putting down about 330whp


thats pretty much the only complaints I have
