Default EJ20 into '02 OBS wiring ??s

A quick background on the what and why: My WRX bugeye wagon was totalled (frame damage), but has a fresh (20K mile) engine in it and a built suspension, so I picked up a cheap/clean '02 OBS to swap suspension and drivetrain into. I understand all of the mechanical aspects of what I'm doing, and know the tricky part will be the harness.

Here's the question: Which would be the path of least resistance, stripping both cars down and swapping complete harnesses or splicing just the ECU and underhood portions ?

BTW, I'm not planning on swapping interiors or dash, just tach and speedo.

Thanks in advance

Got it, thanks. I just wish I had a garage for all the parts strewn about, but I did manage a GC FWD/AT -AWD/5sd swap without one last year.
