Default Questions on swapping my sti engine and trans into my wagon

I have a 2004 sti that was recently totaled due to major rear quarter panel damage. There was no damage other than cosmetic. I just purchased an 04 wagon and am hoping to swap out the motor, transmission and exhaust from my sti. Is there any tutorials on this process? Also, should this be fairly straightforward or should I expect some roadblocks? I have a full parts car to do this just wondering what else could be involved into swapping like ecu and so on. Just wondering if could do so with out doing the full wiring harness and and DIY out there on this swap.

Thanks for any and all help with this

You will need to swap just about everything.

Engine, trans, wiring harness, ECU, Dash, center console, rear diff, driveshaft, sensors, etc.

You don't "need" to swap the brakes, but I'd do it anyway. The Brembo's are really nice.

I'm looking into doing a similar thing here but 06wrx -> a GC Impreza obs. Instead of creating my own thread about this, I figured it makes more sense to leech of it. Will there be problems with the harness if you swaped everything you could?
