well, if u decide to do a motor swap or get a front clip...the wiring is the hardest part...ive heard of people putting sti shortblocks on the NA ej25 heads...that way u can still use all ur wiring and slap a turbo kit on it...i would imagine that you could always take heads off any usdm ej20 and keep using the same intake manifold so that you dont have to mess w/ the wiring, that is the cheapest route and easiest...if u dont get an sti shortblock then definitely get a front clip that has many goodies...most of the time you can get a front clip and part out some of it for things that you do want instead of the parts that you dont want...either way, i would personally get a front clip...but the sti shortblock way is fairly reliable...keep in mind though that the shortblock obviously would have to be attached to the heads which isnt cheap, nor insanely expensive...who knows, gl tho
