I've got one, did it about 6 yrs ago, it was a 98 2.2 auto, now pretty much stock 97 V3 STI with just breathing mods and it's done a 13.09, if it wasn't for the headwind it would have been in the 12's, Seagull has one .... 95 which has more mods than mine which would probably be in the mid 12's and it also has the factory computer, doing the conversion is pretty straight forward except for the wiring so you send both wiring harnesses to AMAuto's ( Al ) in Qld so he can marry them together...he's done dozens, there's also a shitload of other modded Gen 2's on RSLC RS Liberty Club.

have you considered something like this:

Find Cheap Used & Second Hand Cars For Sale | Joondalup | Gumtree Classifieds

06 STI block, custom turbo setup, STI 6 speed + Brembos, would be a weapon!
