Default JDM Ver 8 swap

I'm considering swapping a jdm version 8 engine into my 02 wrx wagon. It's just my daily driver and will stay just that but I like to have a little fun every once in a while. Talking to Japan domestic imports for the engine and ecu, they are nasioc vendors. I can't decide if spending a little extra $ to get the ver 8 spec c. Looking to keep the swap as simple as possible, will a spec c conversion add complexity ? Just looking for some wisdom from guys that have done a jdm engine swap, comments welcome. Help me understand better. I've searched nasioc for hours, just need a little more personal feedback. I Understand I'll have to use a jdm ecu and do some additional wiring. What else Do I need to know?
Thanks in advance for your time and input.
