Default STI Forester swap


Ive read a bunch of threads on this subject and looking for more clarification...

I pretty much understand hat is neded to complete the swap (at least on the mechanical side), and looking to tie up some loose ends.

I have an option to get a 05 FX for practically nothing and Im just looking to see which swap would make the most amount of sense.

I would prefer a 257, but looking at all my options, seems that buying a jdm front clip (207) is the most economical.

Is there any reason NOT to go that route?

Does the rear cross member need to be changed out as well?

If anyone has any personal experience or feedback, Id love to hear it.

PS my power goals are pretty mild - around 350whp or so.
The car would see some track time as well, but nothing crazy.

Thanks in advance.
