Hi, This summer im going to be looking at doing a ver. 7 sti spec c swap including the engine, tranny, wiring harness, suspension, brakes, drivetrain, rear diff, etc. i live in eastern PA and there are not a lot of shops around here that would do a swap of this type. I have 3 friends of mine who do all of their own engine work that said they would help me. Is this possible? They have everything needed to do the swap. Im wondering how hard and how long it would take to do the swap in 1 weekend or so.
Thanks

im not sure on the wiring, but if its anything like the older GC swaps your going to be hating life after about 2 weeks of wiring(thats if your good).
I just got done w/ my swap, and it took me 2weeks to do it. of witch 10 days where spent stricktly on wiring.
do your homework and look around. this swap has been done hundreds of times, and there is plunty of info on it.

good luck

you can run the ver.7 engine off of your wrx wiring already in the car.. You may need to add some wires for avcs if equipped.

So now that I understand the wire needs, is it possible to get a few friends and myself to DIY this since we know what we are doing?

I don't see why not. As long as you have the information you would really need to do it. ecu pinouts, and wiring diagrams if need be.

im fairly good with cars, but this was the 1st time i did something on this level. im sure if i where to do it again, i could cut down the wiring time by 1/2. i just had to find out things as i went, and took notes on it. there is allways little things that you dont find out till you try and start the motor.

yeah like me swapping the crankshaft and camshaft signal pins in the gray connetor near the turbo....it took me about 2 hours to figure out why i had fuel and spark and it was popping back thru the intake. i then found out that you can't run a factory WRX BOV to atmosphere(car would start run for 5 seconds then start to lope and die)....ah yes, the joys of putting a powertrain in a car that it was not originally intended for.
