Default STI engine ID & EMS questions. Landed parts for an early vw bus swap

Project: Donation Foundation
I will start out by asking a couple silly questions followed by pics soon.

An engine from a 2009-2010 STI has been donated. The engine is 100% complete. Before I even start I need to know how to tell what engine this is. From looking around it sounds like it might be an EJ257 unit. Where are the #'s located on the box to tell what it is.

After I figure this out I need to figure out EMS. Locally I have a couple buddies who are pretty good with AEM universal boxes. I did notice that AEM only has EMS plug n play through 06. Even if they did have one for this late model engine I don't know if that's what I would want considering I'm not integrating with a body harness. The engine harness is complete so I was thinking it would be nice if I just used the stock harness coupler and went from there to the ecu. Also - drive by wire. Would I be bypassing the ECU and just try to find an STI pedal assembly to get the throttle arm off of? Are the throttle sensors on the pedal the same as other Subaru models.

I'm using a type 1 pro street trans (donated) with a swing axle on a 1959 split window VW.

Any suggestions or direction are appreciated. I'm not inexperienced with working on a lot of stuff- just Subarus.
