Default jdm sti gc8 swap harness and RHD questions

hi everyone. this is my first thread here and im new to the world of subarus. im a honda guy for a long time. but ever since i had a turbo supra i have always craved boost. so im starting to get my feet wet on the swap world of subaus. my question is....

if i were to get an intire front clip from a jdm sti 2.0 could i use the intire dash harness with the engine harness and avoid the issues with merging the harnesses.?

i also understand that the right hand drive swap is very straight forward on these cars when given a donor clip. is this true? its all bolt in correct?

if i were to be able to swap over complete dash and motor harness would it matter what year the car was that it was going into? or would replacing everything eliminate its obd and replace it with the new?

and lastly, some good reputable companies to get a jdm front clip would be very helpfull


thanks to everyone in advance.

ps my plans are a two door impreza L with a 2.0 sti swap while exploring the possibilitys of a right hand drive. (since ill be looking for a front clip

Right hand drive isn't that hard. The only real wiring you would need to do is merging the front harness to the rear harness, lights speakers, fuel pump ect. You will need to weld in all the dash brackets, and a partial skin from the fire wall.
