just take the motor out of the wrx and put it in the TS, use the TS manifolds and its plug and play. The cam gear needs addressed though

his engine won't last long this way. at around 13:1 AFR with the NA ECU, and no way to control the wastegate, i'd give his engine a few hard pulls before it grenades.

but seriously, the wrx to 04 rs is one of the easier swaps, most of the harness is plug and play. Swapping the crossmember may be the hardest part
