Default sti setup into 99RS

i was wondering whether or not one would be able to take the entire engine/turbo setup and tranny/drivetrain setup from an STI and drop it into a 2.5RS. i assume the engine would go in because it is the same block, but wehter or not the extea piping would fit is different. and how about the tranny and drivetrain? because the wheel base is different. sorry if this has already been covered, but i couldn't find anything in a search. any input would be great. thanx

Are you talking current American STI or an earlier Japanese STI? The US STI engine will need a modification to the crossbar to fit. As far as the tranny goes, I'm not sure how well it would fit underneath. I think the STI unit is larger and you might run into fitment problems.

then how come folks that don't have STis have the short blocks... there aren't a ton around right now, but they are out there... and the forrester XT block should be available, and carries the identical part # to the STi...
