Default 2005 Legacy Gt engine into a 2000 RS

Does anyone have information that would be usefull for helping out with this swap. I am trying to figure out basically as much information as possible when it comes to the immobilizer system, that seems to be the only thing that I found that would make the swao different than a WRX swap and I would much rather have the GT engine over the WRX engine. Can anyone tell me if i'm correct with the information? And if anything know anything else that make the swap different than a WRX swap please let me know. Thanks.

So what does that mean? Is the swap doable or is it just gonna be way too much of a pain to make it work?

Well it sounds to be that the ECU is tied into a good deal of the car, if thats a fact you will need to work around some of the electrical issues. It would be easier to get a FXT/STI or wrx w/ bottom end swap (if thats what your looking for)

It just seems like it may be too difficult if that is the issue with the ecu being wired into absolutly everything. I just found everything for a good price and its 2.5, turbo and as AVCS heads, for like a said a great price, but if its too difficult i don't know if its worth it due to the extreme wiring situation.

Is it the whole wreck, or just the parts from a junk yard? Have you bought it yet? I may be interested if you're not, I don't have any info on how to get around any of the wiring issues, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

physcally there is nothing wrong with the swap if it was going into a 95 or older car and you could run a standalone it is a great swap ... there is going to be a ton of these engines on the market .. i suspect that the obxt+lgt sales will exced the wrx sales

you could even use a cheepo ecu like a sds and not worry about the avcs and easly pull 275 hp out of it
may very well also be a good source of 2.5 short blocks

Are you planing on doing the swap yourself or having a shop do it? If you want a shop to do it Pm Ver. III on here, i am sure he can give you a price.. He has done lots of DBW swaps and is VERY resonably priced, you would be suprised..
