Default EJ20 v7 into 08 2.5i

Hey I was wondering if anyone's ever done a EJ20 v7 swap into a 08 2.5i? I want to give it a go but don't know if it's possible in my 08. Reason I want to try it, is cause the 2.5i engine sucks and now I have a massive knocking noise and needs to be rebuilt and or replace the engine. I have a guy that has a EJ20 V7 STI engine with computer, 6 speed tranny, axles , and drive shaft but was wondering if anyone's tried or attempted this before.

Just buy a WRX and be done with it.

It will cost you more to swap the engine and in the end you will have a car that is worth much less than a WRX or even a stock 2.5i
