Default 05 STI swap into 04 WRX Wagon. HELP!

Just looking at some options on different builds but this seems the most apealing to me. What components would I need to do a full 05 STI awap into an 04 WRX Wagon. aside for a list of parts necessary, a list or possible problems i may run into with the swap would be much appreciated. Thanks NASIOC!!

I was not sure where to post this so if it is in the wrong section, mods please move it to the correct area, sorry.

do you want to swap the motor or the motor and 6spd tranny.

For the motor this is required.

If you are picking up the entire 05STI donor car, I'd also swap the hub over to the better stronger bolt pattern.
