Default JDM v8 ej207 into 06 wrx?

Alright, so i blew the motor in my car and i am now looking for a replacement. The one thing that really attracted me to this was the 8200 rpm redline (always been a honda fan, miss my high revving motors) and the fact that they can be had at a decent price with a 6 speed attached.
Now i understand that i will need to wire the jdm ecu into my harness, though there are kits for this if im not mistaken?
And I would also need to find a cluster from a jdm v8 car correct?
But apart from the wiring everything else should just bolt up for the most part right?
And as far as the tranny, could i still use my axles and hubs or would i need to replace all of that too?
Sorry if these are stupid questions, ive spent hours researching but with the ridiculous amount of information on this site it is a bit overwhelming.

Thanks for the help,
Ryan.

You may run into more complicated issues than the older WRX's because of the fact you have a DBW throttle. I'll let some other people explain it better, but all the JDM engines (at least I think all of them) are drive by cable (DBC)

would it be possible to just replace the dbc assembly with the dbw assembly off of my current motor?

a 2.5L to 2.0L swap is a little more involved than just a simple drop in the motor and wire it up. PM DS1, they know their **** when it comes to swaps.

I had a JDM v8 swap done on my '04 2 weeks ago.......
I am quite quite happy, the engine is very smooth & the 6 spd is much easier to shift. There is lots of power when you need it!!!

Yep, 04 WRX 2.0L swap is much easier, reuse the wiring harness and add 4 wires for AVCS.


I'm waiting for mine to be finished!
