Haven't done that one yet but i would guess that ull have to get a wrx ecu and harness. Non turbo cars and turbo cars don't communicate very well. The turbo cars have 4 individual coils and the rs has one coil pack kinda hard to make that swap as well as many other things. Ull need to change ur crossmember too.

Default 04 WRX into 03 Foz XS

A buddy of mine has a complete 04 wrx and is willing to give up the motor, harness, and ecu so i can do this swap. What kinds of complications are there with swapping the harnesses? do I need to use the WRX gauges as well? the mecahnical part of it is easy of course, but I am dumb founded by the wiring part. I know it is critical that it be correct, but I am curious as to what really will have to be done to get the wiring conversion done. Or if someone has any information on what is actually different between the two harnesses, that may help as well. I hope Im kind of sticking with the thread with this post.

Thanks!

There is alot to do it depends on how much of the car you want to work ABS air conditioning power windows sunroof things of that nature the harnesses are different sizes and go through different holes in the firewall the car so that's a problem. You absolutely have to use the WRX cluster. the fuel and evap systems are completely different so ull either have to delete the evap system or swap fuel tanks. it's a lot of work and I wouldn't recommend doing it if you are not familiar with the wiring harnesses on subarus. I've done 12 of these big swaps and I still have to go to the book. Its very time consuming and a lot of people start this project and never complete it. but if you decide you want to attempt this on your own make sure you get the wiring harness book for your car and the car you're doing swap with. there's a lot to consider dash lights instrument cluster HVAC systems blower motor fuel pump control modules there's just a lot to be thinking about. anything is possible with patients.

I wouldn't exactly call this bolt on forced induction

Are you running the stock RS brakes? Why didn't you swap over the hubs/brembos and BBS's?

PS. How much you want for the STi hood scoop?

Ya its pretty sleeper made 332hp and 364tq on pump gas. And that thing with the five speed and how light it is just flies. The customer had never driven anything but n/a subarus and he freaked on his fits ride. I love getting that reaction out of customers

Want you to know that you Suck B@lls lol mahn that must be fun bro...like swapping a VR6 into a VW rabbit or KA motor into a CRX or a LS1 or 20B into a miata lol what do all have in common.
Their super light for the motor so power to weight is crazy. Car looks good man. Now clean that thing up Hot bissel the inside and keep her clean. She might be more reliable than the others due too pushing its self around. Some nice grabbing brakes and rubber to keep her on the road and your golden man. It'll still look like a sleeper too so no worries.
There gon thick your rice with tat STI badge lol until you fly past them lol Be safe heard L bodies are like paper in weight.
