Lightbulb sti ver 5 engine swap

would this be worth the time, effort and money. i can get an jdm sti ver5 engine which to the best of my knowledge puts out 280hp, and an sti 6pd tran for about 3450 which is about 6000 after vat(englands tax) to put in to my my02 rs. i realize that i could just put a turbo on my car but there are many limiting factors and after i go with computer and a trany build up off the stok tranny it would be just as much. so please give my some opinions

first if you have an 02 why didn't you just get a WRX

second if you are in Germnay I'm sure you can find one there, and if you are in the US service I think they have forums to get you out of paying the Value Added Tax there.

Jonny, do it. Those are great prices for those parts, and you're correct that you'll pay as much in the long run replacing broken gearboxes, etc, so you may as well do it right the first time. Just make absolutely sure that everything is legit before you put any cash down.
