Question 1st Gen EJ20 into 2nd/3rd Gen Legacy?

Ok.. Looks like I'll be coming back to the states in February, and I think I want to bring my engine with me. I'd like to get a 2nd/3rd(prefer 3rd) gen legacy, and swap the engine. Anyone have any ideas/thoughts on doing this? Will it bolt up ok to the US transmissions and such? Also, my engine uses direct ignition. Would I be able to keep this, or swap out the ignition components for a distributorless ignition? And ECUs, wiring harnesses and such.. how are those effected?

You may want to contact Dale Teague at Boxer4Racing.com. He's done a good bit of Subie engine swapping, and may have some ideas about what you're looking at.
