vf40 02 wrx

Looking to trade an el header for a vf40 turbo off a legacy gt with 2000 miles on it...comes with tmic as well. would it be to much work for the gains I would receive? I have tried researching this but have not been able to come across any legit answers. thank you

c2bcoolwrx is more helpful than not
LGT has a different turbo flange. It will not fit a '02-07 wrx w/o modification.

If you get the turbo and tmic you'll still need the intake manifold at a bare minimum. I'm not sure if the throttle body from the 02 bolts up to the new IM, but if it doesn't then you need to convert to dbw at the same time. Get a vf39/43/48 if yo want to upgrade, those are all direct bolt on, you would just need to up the injectors..

You'd probably need different oil lines too as I think the LGT's are different than the 02 wrx.
