Default Hoping to swap EJ20 into 97 Outback, what do I need to know?

Hi,
just bought a 97 OB w/a 5spd and stumbled across a 2002 WRX motor for sale for right around $1000 with what I think is most everything I need. Both cars had 140k on them. What exactly will I need from the WRX? Will the OB transmission handle the power form a stock WRX motor? Should the fact that the wiring harness was cut on the donor motor be a concern? What is a reasonable price to pay for this setup? Is 140k too many miles for a donor engine(would not concern me with a n/a motor, but I'm wondering if the car was beat on)? Ant other concerns/ things I should be looking for? Thanks for any input or steering towards threads that would contain more info on this. I'm hoping to pull the trigger on this tomorrow!

I just lost my lunch....I'd take a Taser to that swap.

But I do acknowledge your fortitude!

Good luck.

What's so hard about it? I've done that swap. It's pretty much the same as any other swap..
