Default EJ20T into a Porsche 914, a few ?'s

Hi there. I'm a sccoby newby so please forgive the off the wall questions.

I am installing a EJ20T from either an 03 or 05 (looking @ 2 different motors) WRX. What if any is the difference between them?

Next question is wiring based. Both motors include the motor wiring harness and the ECU. Do I need any other wiring harness to make this work? I have heard conflicting advise that i will need the body harness as well.

Should be more fun than a disco monkey when it's done

honestly its gonna be alot of work to make the factory ecu happy it may not possible many many obd-2 dealies
the 05 will have MORE sensors and is less mod frendily
question 2 be sure when they say the harness is encluded they mean the body harness- subarus harness are intagrated not seperate like other cars
the engie harness is just on the engine it self

consider an older jdm motor (the ones that come with the air to water intercoolers)
and standalone Engine Managment you should be able to pick one of these motors up + a preprogrmed ecu for <2500

look at these guys

i've found a few inexpensive, low mile wrx motors.

It looks like i will be going w/ the 03, so i dont have to deal w/ OBD2

And will have to pick up the body harness from somewhere too... thanks much

yes you do ... 03 has just as much obd-2 stuff in it
body harness are kinda difficult to find - good luck though

sorry to be pessimestic but would rather give you the real proublems upfront

Contact Renegade Hybrids in Las Vegas. One of their employees, Dana, put one in his personal 914 and they developed a kit from it. It costs a pretty penny, but includes a craddle, adapter plate stuff and all the technical stuff you need to do it.
OR try 914club.com We've got a handful of Subby swappers in our midst...
