Default BG or BK EJ20 or EJ25 swap?

I've been thinking for a little about selling my 05 WRX wagon and getting an older legacy wagon or impreza L wagon and swapping in a WRX or STI engine. Has anyone on here done so? The biggest question i have is that it seems like 300 hp in an old ass wagon would flex the chassis like butter, so i wanted to see if its been done. I've seen a lot of 2.5RS swaps and stuff, but i know those cars are bit more rigid and stuff. Any info is appreciated!
Thanks~!

the 44s (2001) and ne car is suposdly 50% stiffer than the gc ... i would speculate that the 2000 legacy is proportional to the 95-99

it will flex .. but i don't think your going to notice it all tha much in either a bg of gc
