    Question 2004 WRX and a 2005 WRX

    I need help figuring out what will be impossible and what is possible for swapping interiors down from a salvaged 05' WRX (non STI) to a damaged 04' (non STI). I have a '04 WRX with frontal damage and both air bags are deployed. I am looking at buying a "NR (non-repairable) Parts Only title on a 2005 that has no rear end but a perfect front half. The 2005 has both airbags intact and a great 60k engine. What parts can be swapped from the newer 2005 over to the 2004?

    From the looks of things I noticed my 2004 has a MOMO logo 4 spoke steering wheel while the 2005 has a 3 spoke Subaru logo steering wheel. Also, the Boxer engine has some long black air intake coming from the passenger side front of the engine bay. I know that both of these two have the 2.0L 4 turbo with the 5spd manual.
    Can someone elaborate on whats going to be problematic with swapping parts from the 05' down to the 04' and if the airbags are plug and play for the swap of not.

    New to all of this so be gentle.

    Thanks!!

    I don't know about the steering wheel, but everything else to my knowledge is completely compatible (engine, trans, seats, etc...)

    Thank you Extreem06! And thank you JD92!

    I was also taking a closer look at the Steering column. It seems like
    the Turbo Boost gauge is on the opposite side of the 2004 from the 2005z. Which
    do you guys prefer over the other? I will be having BOTH of them and only making
    one car out of the two that I have.

    Has anyone on here ever changed out the steering wheels with the
    Airbags? Are they "plug and play"?

    Need some good WRX forum knowledge!
