Default EJ253 To EJ255 SWAP

just tossing around the idea, I know its been done but whats some opinions and comments? Wondering just what all is required parts wise to complete and if the transmission has to be swapped aswell or if it mates with the 255. Thanks in advanced!

for the $$$ it would cost...you could sell your current car and buy a wrx with none of the headaches associated with this kind of swap.....the 07's are CAN bus and that can be a PITA

Selling unfortunately isn't an option. But what's involved?

well...ive never done this swap....but.....other than the motor itself....ALL the engine wiring harness and the ecu and some of the fuel system and most of the exhaust and maybe the front subframe

yer trans and rearend are about the only things you wont have to change

so...depending on how cheap ya can get the parts.....and if you or somebody else does the labor

think $3k - $5k all done and driving down the road...mebbe a bit more or less, but think more rather than less and ya wont be too far off I think
