you will need atleast the motor, ecu, wiring harness and some of the accesories if you dont want a complete clip

the front clip is the front half of the car... normally from the dash farwards so you get all the important wires... i've seen some with the trans or without... although you can use your stock trans so it isn't overly important...
the upside to this conversion is it all bolts right in... my buddy did this conversion on his 93 impreza for his rally car... it all bolts right in... but! it's all wiring...
if you have service manuals(try to get factory service manuals) for your car and the car you're getting the clip from it would make it a bunch easier...
also try looking around on www.nasioc.com

Maybe you should do your homework before you even think about a conversion, or find a place that does these type of conversions and pay them to do it. Why not enjoy your Impreza as it is for awhile so that you can gain the knowledge. Use 'Google' or some other search engine to get information. This is not something a novice should take on, it is a complex conversion, not a simple bolt up. Do your homework, come back and ask intelligent questions, then I will answer you, I have done several of these type of conversion, and will be able to tell you the pit falls, but I don't want to have to explain in minute details, every step. Not knowing what a front clip is tells me that you are no ready to learn.
Uhh you lost me on the wrx front clip.. whats a front clip

Good luck, Subaru swaps are much different the other swaps, I know, I have done many swaps of many different makes and engines, but none of them were like any of the Subaru swaps that I did.
Yes I do know what a front clip is i just was thinking... but anyways I have help my other friends to engine swaps and there really good working on cars so yes they are going to help me and yes I am doing my homework thats why i started this thread. Im looking for a good engine that I can build up to be a BEAST im going to buy and engine and built it up then when its finished I swap the engines along with other parts that need to be replaced / upgraded do to the power increase.
