Default question for those who have swapped and retained A/C

Will this work?

STI version 3 motor with MY99 2.5RS compressor bracket and WRX compressor.

I have a complete WRX A/C system at my disposal, so swapping out the A/C lines to mate up with the WRX compressor (or even fabricating them) isn't out of the question. I'd just like to confirm that everything else will fit.

I've already had one reputable source tell me "nay," but at the same time, I've read in numerous posts of people mix and matching compressor and brackets etc...

Can anyone give me a definite "yay" or "nay" on this?

THanks!

Jason.

For those searching:

Bracket and tensioner from a 99 impreza, mated up to the the STI3 motor, with 93 compressor worked like a charm.

We couldn't use the WRX compressor because the connectors on the hoses were different (as expected). I think you could possibly get away with changing the size of the "O" ring on the connector to a bigger one, but since the 93's compresor was around, I never bothered to try.

AC stuff is retardedly interchangable as long as all the fittings are happy together and don't leak.

My other fitment issue was that the JDM tensioner bracket that was already on the motor didn't leave any room for either of the WRX or 1.8 compressors. I don't think that any NA compressor would have fit on it by the look of it.
