Default Mechkiller31st's 98 EJ22 getting swapped with 94 Ej22T

Ok well im going to be posting in this for documentation purposes to show the status of my swap and to hopefully get some questions answered and maybe to help others in the future.

- (skip this its just a BIO) A little about me and my car.
ok in 2001 when i was 15 my great aunt died and i got her car... a 1998 Subaru impreza L wagon with 13K miles on it.. (EJ22 SOHC, 4EAT). Of Course the 15 year-old in me didnt know what a Subaru is and well i was a bit disapointed when i saw it was a wagon. I have enjoyed this car very much. I have yes gotten a few tickets with it. she has gotten quite alot of mods since i got it and those will be shown below.

-(the swap) Ok i decided to get off my ass and finnaly decided to get some performance in my car since after 100K miles im fed up with being NA. So while i was scrounges around the local pick n pull I came across a Turbo Legacy... the motor looked in perfect condition so i decided it was time...

-(the Goal) simple... to be faster then the following cars (be it at the drap or from a roll) Chevy Cobalt SS, Dodge Neon SRT-4, Ford Mustangs, and finnaly Subaru WRX's

-(the donor and the engine pull) $242 for full motor
took me and two freinds about 3 hours to pull... there was alot of bullshi**** around and jokeing but it was fun since this is my first motor swap.

*Reserved for Q & A*

Question #1 - will a stock WRX turbo bolt right onto this motors up pipe (basically is it a direct bolt on all together without any modifications)

Question #2 - is there anyone who has done the wireing to get this older motor to work with say a 98 or similar ECU to make it OBD II (hacking the harness is to be expected) (yes i plan on running a piggy back)

Question #3 - What are the stock Injectors suppose to be. this motor that i pulled has some JS 26-1's which are 395cc (Pink Tops, Side Fed)

Question #4 - will WRX or STi Headers work on the stock EJ22T SOHC? (Looking to get as much power as possible before dropping in)

Question #5 - any good sites to get parts off of that are aftermarket performance that will work with this motor (besides Boxer4racing, Andysautosport, and Rallitek

1) Turbo will bolt to existing up pipe
2) I have A wire harness for that car .. I'm somone has done a merge
3) I believe 395 or 380's is correct
4)Wrx-STI headers will bolt right up
5) What kinda after market parts ? anything for the Wrx will most likely work for your engine/car .
