It will bolt straight in mate, but will be the same power as your current unit. You may have to change crank/cam sensor

If yours is a 93 WRX
You will have issues with the ECU etc.
Not saying it can not be done but not as straight forward as just bolting it in.......


If yours is an STi
And you want to stick a WRX gearbox on I think you may need to change the rear diff as well so it matches the front diff in the 93 gearbox
