Default v6 sti into 05

My brother just gave me his 05 2.5 rs, but it has a blown motor. I keep finding all these used JDM engines but idk how reliable they are. Can anyone give me a few pointers/ place to find a good wrx motor. would a version 6 STI motor and tranny fit in it?


thank you for your help

It will fit. But the problem will be that the wiring harnesses will need to be merged. RS wiring is very different from JDM. iWire may be able to merge harnesses for you. There are a number of these conversions around that do not run due to wiring and dash issues.
