Default Sti throttle body on wrx engine

So I have a 05 forester and am gonna be doing a wrx engine swap my car is dbw and I was told that the 05 jdm wrx engine is dbc I found some 04 sti throttle bodys that are dbw would these bolt right up to the wrx engine and work? I'm new to Subaru so probably a pretty noob question

You're new to this and asking this much of a basic question? Maybe an engine swap is a little over your head. And no a dbw and dbc TB are not interchangeable. The bolt patterns for the tb's are different.

All you need is an STi manifold of one that will accept a DBW cable. I don't think your question is that unreasonable. I would not have known if I hadn't had both DBW and DBC cars.

Since you already have the forester manifold you can re-use that on the new engine.
