Alright, so long story short-
I bought a wrx a year ago. I finally got the engine put back together and got it running. I checked all the fluids and added about 1.5 qts to top off the trans. I drove it for two weeks. I got in it to drive to the store with a friend, and the trans locked before I could even get anywhere. I barely got it back into neutral after it was locked up.

Now I am trying to figure out my options aside from just buying a whole new trans. Is my trans rebuildable? What are we talking about needing rebuilt here? My roommate mentioned something about the material that subaru makes their synchros with and that they probably deformed from heat when it happened.

Every 5MT I can find with a pull clutch is 1000+
I can find push clutch 5MTs from older models to swap the internals over with a friend of mine to retain the original WRX trans case, so that it works with my clutch. I was thinking this was my best option until that same roommate said that the inside of the case would be covered with shavings and you can never get them all out and blah blah blah it's garbage, basically.

What do you think is the most cost-effective course of action?

EDIT:
A thought just occurred to me. What about finding a donor car and swapping from pull to push clutch? Is that a horrible idea? I just need to get this thing running for college. I'm not trying to build a race car. I'm happy leaving the waste gate looped at 7psi if I have to.

Thanks everyone, I've been dying to get my WRX back on the road for over 6 months now and it's killing me to see it sit. I'm stuck on this trans issue, but I will have a little money to fix it soon. I just need to know where to put my money.

Default trans swap

does anyone know without a doubt and or can cite sources that show a 2003 wrx 5 spd will bolt up to a 2002 rs engine? subaru part numbers would be 32000ag310 replacing a 32000af330. i dont hav the time to do it myself so ill be taking it in while im on a trip- if they dont match up any suggestions where i can buy a rebuild kit for the comparable price of the swap? thanks

Please don't hijack my thread, that's rude. Make a new thread. Also, the answer to that is all over the internet, I'm not even going to dignify it with an answer, because then you will keep doing that over and over.
