Question Swapping a ej20x in my 2008 Legacy GT ej255

So last night I was driving home and noticed a nice knock starting from the engine, looking to build a motor for the car but cash isn't really the answer at the moment. So I keep seeing these ej20x jdm motors saying there a direct replacement. I need a straight cut answer and maybe what I need involving the swap. A few months from now i'm looking to get an s209 Short block and taking it from there for my lgt.

I've got an 08 preza with 180k and was looking to do the same thing. Interested but hesitant to go this route.

The engine will drop right in. Your battle will seemingly be with the wire harness and ECU.

General consensus says this swap is not worth the effort.
