2002 Impreza outback

Default *Advice* 02-03 Ej205 swap into 02 obs questions

I did a search but couldn't find anything definitive, I'm trying to drop an ej205 from an 02-03 model into my 02 outback sport wagon.

Here's a few questions:

*Already have a Walbro 255lph pump, what else do I need specifically?

*i will need a turbo crossmember correct?

*i can reuse the stock 5spd if I retain the outback clutch and flywheel correct? I'm going to drop in a wrx tranny and diff in the future but at stock power the impreza trans should suffice right?

now for the BIG question, what about wiring? Obviously ecu needs to be swapped, do I have to pull the dash or just the engine harness? Can I merge the harnesses? Any places offer harness services?

This is my DD so looking for a quick stock swap for reliability sake, once it's in I can go from there.

Any links to how-to articles would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

i did this, I ended up swapping 100% of the wiring, front to back. I had a complete untouched parts car, so I basically did a unibody swap

the fuel pump controller is very different, i didn't feel like hacking anything so I did the complete swap
