Default Frankenforester help

Question is, i've got a 99 forester ej25 sohc with a motor thats on its way out. I've got a buddy that is selling me a 2002 Legacy GT with an 04 WRX motor and blown trans. Swap was done by a shop that merged harnesses and used the factory legacy trans.

Now to my knowledge our chassis are very similar, as we also had the same engine EJ25.

With that being said can i just move everything over from the legacy to my forester? more importantly can i reuse the legacy/wrx merged harness for my forester? If anyone could please throw in some info.

Ive done alot of research on and off the forums but im getting mostly rs to wrx/sti swaps which is indeed similar.

Forester gods please help!

Originally both cars had the same motor, sohc ej25. You would have to unwire the wrx ecu and rewire the original harness and ecu. By now the wiring would probably be a mess though. Maybe find an uncut harness at a junk yard and put it back right.

would it make sense to find a ecu pin out for a 2002 legacy gt and a ecu pin out for my 1999 forester and see what wires were merged. and swap wire for wire on my harness? what harness are we talking about wiring here, is it the harness passing through the firewall, behind the dash or just the ecu plug side?
