I have found a wrecked wrx, front end cosmetic damage only, and a like year forester 2.5x. Would the wrx drivetrain and engine fit into a forester?

Was there any differance between the 04 forester and 04 wrx driveline?
Such as length, bolt patterns, hp/tq ratings, structure?
Would I have to switch the wiring harness'?
With a engine swap, would the forester need any other things?
The wrx has everything about stock plus a CAI, I believe.

Would the shocks from the wrx be able to lower the forester some? I have heard of people using the STI's but never the wrx's.

Thanks for any information on this.:monkey_dance:

You should be able to use the WRX ecu and wiring for the engine. It will probably take a little wiring for the rest of the body stuff, headlights, tail lights etc. The drivetrain should be straight forward as well. And the strut and spring combo will fit the forester
