For the exterior: STi wing?, side skirts, wheels? etc

interior: seats, gauges, door cards, speakers?, head unit, etc

engine: turbo, axleback, mid pipe, intercooler, etc

And depending on where it is wrecked, FRONT END CONVERSION?!?!?! I'd love to do that

Suspension and control arms are compatable, I'm running them on mine.

The rear sways and endlinks are not compatible. The struts aren't compatible if it's an 05 or later. You'll have to grab a lot if you want to move some things over but I suppose it's doable.

You need to be much more specific here or you're just going to get the idea that more stuff will easily bolt up to your WRX than actually will.

Sorry,
I'm running STi Version 7 control arms, Version 8 springs, and STi strut tops, mixed with various aftermarket suspension pieces according to the previous owner. So, those are compatable.

Right, the bottom end (mated to your current heads, hopfully you'll throw in new rings if you're going that deep) the turbo, the IC, and the injectors are all swap-able.

No one's mentined the brakes yet. The Brembos are doable if you take the rotors, only if you get an 04 STi.

Well look, if you take everything down to the bare frame, you can take whatever you want. The cars up to 07 all have the same frame. It's just a question of how thorough you want to be.

Also, Can I point out the absurdity of a $4000 scrap STi? If it's got an intact tranny, it's going to get more money than that.
