um no won't work (won't work well anyway)
the 98 has a low density crank wheel and is sohc
and FWIW the wrx harness+ecu actually has some value to it i would guess in the 500-600 range if its complete

i would try and find a complete setup from a pre 96 car.

the obd-2 (1996 and later) ecu will look for other strange things like purge valves on the gas tank and throw the car into limp mode

check out the conversion forum there are several ppl that have done subarus into porsche conversions

You should use the harness and ECU that goes with the engine.

same proublem

there are several sand rail companys that sell pretuned stand alone ecus for what you are dooing either the 2.2 or the jdm ej20T

outback motorsports is the first one that comes to mind

the 02 +ecu is very very smart it will ot respond well to other engines
