So I am doing the 04 Sti swap into my 02 Wagon.....I decided to go the hard route...

Needless to say...this is a ton of work. I am pretty sure I will have the motor in and running by this weekend. Figuring I started the tear down in the middle of last week that seems pretty good. The biggest pain I am running into is that I have an early model 02 which means the car has the JDM harness...which inturn requires a bit more work including that the rear doors, the rear compartment, and the fuel pump wiring and clips are different. I will have to end up adding about 25 or so wires from my wagon rear section to the STI harness. I was hoping to keep all the old harness complete so I could recoup some of the money dropped into the project. Once I make the changes to the harness I will post some before and after shots to show you all what I am talking about.
Luckily just about everything on the front end matches minus the routing for a couple of the srs sensor wires..that is pretty easy to fix.

Well wish me luck, I will surely need it!!!!

Bombs away!!
