Alright, what are you asking? Thats pretty vague. Are you trying to put an STi block under your current heads? Or are you doing an STi engine swap into your OBS? If its the engine swap, its probably no different than doing a swap into a 98 RS, if so there's people who can help.

If you are trying to swap in an STi Shortblock, check the FAQ at the top of the page. As it should be the same as swapping one into a RS
