Default NEED THOUGHTS: v8 Front Swap on a RHD v7 STi

i need opinions starting out with a 01 v7 rhd sti and converting the front to a 04-05 sti what would you guys think? would that ruin the car? or be pretty cool to see a 01 rhd sti with a 04-05 front end?
overall plan is to have a track looking car
Thanks

edit: also would like to do the 04 tail/bumper swap

An all aluminum ls1 5.7l is not that heavy at all. My brother has done the swap in a miata you can get these engines fairly cheap. It would be cool if you could get an adapter and keep the all wheel drive

you have a true v7 jdm sti? if so how did you aquire it? but to answer your question, if it truely is a real 01 jdm sti then why convert the front end to a very common sti that was available in the states? i say keep it the way it is. if it was mine and was stock i would never change anything due to the fact i would be one of the very few in the states to own a true v7 sti.
