    Backwards Swap

    Two questions really. Is is possible to put an 06 wrx's ej255, 5mt, drive shaft, rear diff and rear axle into an 04 sti without too much fabrication. And secondly if anyone has any advice or experience with a similar scenario then some help would definitely be appreciated.
    As a quick background. Protuned stage two wagon flipped. Car runs and 'drives' but has severe body and frame damage along with a few other bumps and bruises. Have found an 04 sti shell that has body interior steering/suspension components as well as fuel tank and system. Best bet it seems to me to get my build back on the road.
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    Part it out and sell everything you can and buy a complete car.
    Find a low-mileage one-owner unmodified '04/'05 and you're golden.

    Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
    Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
    Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
    Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

    Kind of figured that would be the direction people would suggest. I appreciate the input.
