Default sti swap in 2.5?

Hey, I'm new to this site, and somewhat to the subaru scene and I'd like to know if there's a post or maybe a how-to on how to swap the sti motor into a 2.5rs. Im assuming it's not a direct swap, maybe a company like HAsport makes a mount kit, possibly another company that makes a wiring kit, etc. Any and all info would be greatly appriciated. Thanks in advance

hmm for some reason I cant find the sti swap into 2.5 in FAQ (at the top next to vendor/member ratings)...maybe it'd be under the sti's engine code? if so what might that be. Thanks alot.

It's a sticky, 4th from the top of this thread list. I'll make it even easier for you, though:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=386462

Taking any Impreza motor and dropping it into any other Impreza chassis is a piece of cake. Mount points are all the same, etc, almost everything just bolts right up without modification. Like Jaxx said, the wiring is where it gets tricky, *especially* if you get a JDM motor.

Anyways, read through all the extremely useful info in the FAQ and become good friends with the search function. After that, come back here and start asking questions.
