Default GC/STI front end conversion.

I'm considering doing a front end swap from an 06 sti ont a GC body. i'm pretty sure there was a post about it before, and i tried to find it, but came up with nothing. but anyways, i was wondering what stuff will going in, what needs to be modified, if anyone has done it, and so on? i'm a body guy, so i'm not worried about the difficulty, just wondering how deep of a project it would be. i want front bumper, headlights, grill, hood, fenders. thanks

i'm pretty sure that's the post i was looking for. about the eg33, i remember reading it a while back. i found the post, but all pic's were down, and no one really talked about it. i just remember the pictures. so the hood, bumpers, headlights and grill would bolt up in some way? the fenders and quarters i'll probably chop and modify. then i want to use the STI wing, paint it STI blue, and do a full drivetrain swap. this would be a collaborative effort with me and the guys at East Coast Swappers in Springfield , MA. i think it would be sick.
