Default OBS v7 or v8 swap

Hey, I am really considering this now, but I was wondering if it would be easier to go with a haltech or a microtech instead of taking forty hours of wiring? Could I keep my existing harness to control wipers, and headlights.. etc?

The 93 W/EJ20K-sold
Subaru-less :(


that is more or less what i have going i am using the 1.8 harness to controll most of the car functions but the tec 2 controlls the spark and fuel
i moved the engine harness over from my 1.8 to the ej20 connected the water temp oil pressure crank sensor and cam sensor etc

getting a smooth idel on the other hand has proved to be difficult..as the tec won't control the ej20G IAC still workgin on that ... may use a tec IAC in the future

Default Dude...

...the EASIEST way is to just get a JDM harness that goes with the motor. Any experienced mechanic will tell you that. I wanted to just add the wiring for my swap also, but the (Subaru Master) mechanics I talked to said it would be MUCH easier to just replace the whole harness. You and I have similar cars with basically the same wiring harness.

I got a motor, harness, ECU, crossmember, and even and STi fron swaybar... all with less than 5000 kms for $4000 (shipped) off eBay.
