    That's pretty pointless and more work than it's really worth.

    It will be a real pain, dealing with swapping ECUs, and the immobilizer.. not to mention it would be pointless for all practical purposes.

    VF series turbo on the GD WRXs is a great upgrade honestly. You wouldn't be gaining much from the STI engine swap because it's really more hassel than the gains would be worth.
