Finally pulled the trigger and had my STI conversion done...

My Franken STI is made up of:
2004 Forester XT: (Kept this motor as it is golden)
2007 STI Limited - Turbo/TMIC
2006 STI - Oilpan and stick/tube (required for the Killer-B oil pickup)
2005 STI - 6spd/DCCD/R180/Brembos +plus all other drivetrain hardware
2005 STI - Aluminum control arms and Front U-subframe
2010 STI Limited - Wheels
2011 STI - Front Seats
2012 STI - Stock Wheels (use with my All-Season tires).
2013 STI - STI Badges front and rear.

Last item is to install the STI Gauge cluster once I get it in (mileage matching the original mileage on the Forester engine.

The 2005 STI swapped drivetrain has approximately 20K less miles and was on a mostly stock STI... I got DBA rotors front and back as that was the only mod on the donor car.

Attention to detail is key here. I love that you're going to mileage match the original odometer. It's the little things.
Thanks everyone for the posts...

Someday, I would like to get the JDM STI bumper/splitter/Grille/and Headlight surrounds...
