Default Possable 02 WRX IC, turbo, ecu swap for 01 Rs

I was thinking... I currently have a 2001 2.5 RS... so if I had stumbled upon a 02' WRX's turbo and ecu.... did the engine works... will my car be essentially a WRX with more torque?
I know this topic much have crossed many minds but I just wanted to ask myself thanks!

In short, no.


You'd need up and down pipes (custom unless you can get the stock and a crossmember) and an IC (not the WRX one, it won't fit) and other pieces.

I don't think the ECU would be of any use.
