Default na to wrx drive train?

03 impreza outback sport

recently purchased a 03 wrx sedan from copart ( don't flame lol) it has a Cert of Destruction so it won't ever see the road again . but my question is can I swap the entire drive line into my subie? their both autos. the rear axles are bent according to the delivery driver so the lsd is possibly in shambles as well. but I can get a 03 lsd for $200 about an hour away and theirs more than a few partouts for bug eyes around me I could get axels or anything else that was possibly damaged. but should everything from the rex bolt up to my tranny? ie center diff rear diff drive shaft. and what else would have to come over with it?

I plan on eventually doing either a complete swap it building a hybrid (with a 2011 257 block I already acquired) when i have some more funds to build the engine right

I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do. You ask if you can swap the entire WRX driveline into your Subaru, but then you ask if the WRX engine will bolt up to your tranny. Why would you not use the WRX transmission? You don't mention anything about the wiring - what are your plans for that?

The basic answer to your question, though, is YES. Your OBS and the WRX are the same Impreza chassis, so YES, the WRX driveline will install in your OBS just fine. Note that there's an entire forum dedicated to such things - https://forums.nasioc.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=87 - so I would suggest going there for assistance.
