Default Link plus differences, Legacy vs. 2.5RS?

i was wondering what are the differences, if any, between the link plus for a 2000+ legacy and a GC8 link. on rallitek's website the RS link is half the price of the Legacy link, yet they are the same engine, i know my car uses a MAP instead of a MAF sensor but cant the link use either. i am looking to buy a used Link plus, but basically they are all off of imprezas, i want to get one but dont want to buy an engine management system not compatible for my car. thanks for the help.

Well, They use the same engine, and the link plus itself will be identical. At WORST you may have to slightly rewire the harness. I dont know for sure that the legacy ecu pinout is identical though.

I would just try to find a wiring diagram of the 2.5 Legacy and an RS, and compare the two. My money would be on them being VERY similar.

does this make sense or not, if i got a RS link plus then ordered a legacy plug n play harness it would all be fine? i wonder if skywalker could chime in as he seems to be the resident expert on link as far as ive seen. thanks for the help guys.
