Default Smart subie guys...help?switching mods from RS to WRX?

Ok as you can see I totaled my car. I do not know how much I'm getting for it yet, or how much I can buy the wrecked one for either.
I have full exahust on it (borlad) hedders- mid pipe- exahust. strut tower bars f&r- ss lines, drilled rotors, unorth pulley, short shift kit, how much of thid will fit in a new WRX if I go this route?

Also if I can pick up a CHEAP auto RS hoe easy would it be to switch motor/tranny from my 99 to any 98-01 RS? and what elts besides the obvious would I need to do?

Also in the rollover there was extensive body damage besides teh roof being mushed down. How easy/possible impossible would this be to fix well enough to turn into a rally car. Body doesent have to be perfact, would seam weld anyhoo as well.

Please help.

THANKS

John

Ok, I'll tell you what I know:
exhaust - will not work
short shift - will not work
UOR pulley - will work

and now for what I think (I could be wrong):
ss lines - I think they'll work
drilled rotors - I think they'll work
strut tower bars - I don't think they'll work

brake lines will work...

everything else won't.. well the rotor will, but if they are stock RS size they will be smaller than the WRX ones and a little work to fit.

Thanks,

Jon
