Default 2005 2.5rs To Wrx Motor Swap

I Have An 2.5rs My05 And I Want To Swap My Motor For A 2.5l Turbo From A Wrx. I Want To Know What Ill Need? I Also Have A Auto Tranny And Was Wondering If It Is The Same Auto Tranny In The Wrx? If Anyone Can Answer My Questions I Would Greatly Appreciate It.

It's just not worth the time and effort you'd have to put into a motor swap. Just buy the WRX and be happy.

eh also the wrx has a 2L motor and not a 2.5L one. and while you are doing the swap you might as well put in a 5 speed

You would spend waaaaaay more money swapping the engines than you would trading it in for a WRX. Hate to rain on your parade like everyone else, but not worth it bud.
