wow..... what a list of answers you need there.....

do a search for hybrid swaps and then ask some more detailed questions....



here is a quick rundown of basic needs to install a 2.5L....

1. STI EJ257 shortblock, stock, built, whatever...
2. STI EJ257 Headgaskets
3. STI pinks or 550cc injectors
4. A PROPER TUNE FOR THE ENGINE TO KEEP IT FROM DETONATING!!!!


That is really about it....

those are the real neccessities for swapping in a 2.5L into a WRX.....



How much power do you want?

how much reliability do you need?

How fast do you want to go?

How much money do you have to do it?

these are the basic questions that need to be addressed.....


GOOD LUCK!
