EJ20 in my 90 legacy wagon

The easy part is that it will bolt right in, the hard part is the wiring. It is possible to install this set up using the complete front wiring harness and ECU from a 91 to 94 Legacy Turbo. The engine will run, and for most people will probably work just fine, but if you are looking for performance, you'll probably have to add some other engine management electronics.
I just found an EJ20 turbo on ebay for $800.00 and I was wondering how hard it would be to do the swap? Engine, harness and ECU? Anybody ever done this or the WRX swap? Let me know, I am very interested.

Also, an ecu swap is a wiring fiasco, some saying it takes 40 hours or more or solid work. bleh. not my thing. and you'll want of course a tranny capable of using up that much power without grenading, and a better fuel pump.
