    I don't think a USDM EJ257 +DCCD 6spd will fit in a GC8 01 RS. I would go with a 22B.
    go over to nastysak like Midknight sayed, and ask about a 22B swap in a 01 RS.

    The USDM STi engine will fit into the GC8, along with the transmission with the DCCD. Why would you go with the 22b swap if you had the chance to go larger displacement
