It is possible, but there is a massive amount of work required (firewall mods, a/c is all different, etc) and it will never fit 100% (base of the windshield is different, needs custom door cards, etc). ECS did one a few years ago and swore they would never do it again.

Why do you want to convert to an 02 Impreza dash anyway? There is nothing about it that makes it inherently better than the Legacy dash.

to stock is a project too


The only real reason to do the dash is to make a swap a lot easier but yours is already complete so there is no reason to go through the hassle IMO.
