Do we need to change the subframe, transmission cradle, control arm and etc. while doing these swaps? Does 05+ r180 fits into the place of r160?

Thanks a lot.

I am thankful for your answer.

I am planning a swap to 02 EU WRX.

There are lots of choices for me. I can't select which would be good for me.

JDM MY04 V limited or 07 USDM? (both 6 speed)

I got the list:

transmission(reverse lock out, neutral switch, shifter assmbly, boot, knob)
r180(dccd sensor)
driveshaft
starter
2007 master slave, rotors,pads, calipers, brake lines, e brake cable
2007 clutch line & clutch fork
dccd computer & controller
6gunracing Hub&Knuckle change

but not sure about the crossmember, transmission cradle and subframe.

If i change those. Do i need to change endlinks, sway bars ? What about front?

Sorry for my English

You don't need the starter. The WRX one works fine.

Hey everyone! I read through all 10 pages of this thread to find the answer to a riddle I am dealing with, but it sounds like no one else has had this problem. If this info is in this thread, I missed it!

I am swapping the 6mt into an 06 wrx. The wire harness on the 6mt has the same connector location as the 5mt. The difference is that the 6mt has 2 round connectors, one black and one white, and the 5mt has one square connector. The vehicle harness calls for one square connector. obviously..

I think the 6mt came out of a 06-07 STI. The whole deal was sold as a "kit", drive axles, rear diff, shifter and everything included. The guy that sold it says that it all came out of another wrx that is going back to the 5mt, so theoretically, it should all work just fine.

I just need help on this little wiring harness issue...

I am not sure exactly what you are talking about since there are 3 plugs total on the tranny. There is the speed sensor at the front passengers side and the two other plugs that go into the middle drivers side of the tranny. All my connectors are grey or black. Talking about the two that go into the side of the tranny, there is a 4 and 6 pin connector. I was able to get the sti 4 pin connector to splice into my car's harness to hook it up. You could go buy a 4pin connector at radioshack and use that or hook it up however you want. What is you actual question here?

Take a picture, it seems that you are not describing the connectors properly... My 5-6 swap was simple, plug the speed sensor, the N pos switch and the R pos switch and done. It really is as simple as 1-2-3.

Ok, so I'm not sure if this is t right place to ask this or not. I know that you can run wagon front axles in a sedan, but can you run sedan axles in a wagon? I think the sedan axles are 10mm longer maybe ? I do remember and I can't find any of the threads that have this info in them right now.
I have an 02 wagon that I am doing this swap on btw. Need to know if 05 sedan axles will work or of I need wagon axles.

They should work just fine. 10mm is hardly anything, and the joints have a little slip in the joints.

Sorry to bump this for a dumb question. Putting a 06-07 STi trans in my 04 WRX. How can I tell if I have the older or newer front axles? No need to change anything in the Rear Diff, correct? Also, will any year clutch fork and shifter assembly work, or do I need one from an 06-07?

not sure if it was added later, didnt feel like going through this whole thread...for the OP the 02-05 wrx front and center diffs are 3.9's and the rear diff like the OP said is a 3.545 the 1.1:1 transfer gears make this possible. Not sure why subaru did this.

Quick question. I have a 02 Wrx. I'm putting a 06 STI trans in. I know I need the axle stubs from the 04 STI to reuse my front axles. From my research I've seen that I need specific oil seals for the stubs to properly work with the 06 trans. I've seen different part numbers for these seals. Just wondering who has done this specific swap and knows exactly which seals to use. Thanks.

You need the stubs and axle seals from an 04' STI. I can give you the VIN from an 04' STI if you need it for the dealership to look up the parts.

I would like to question the difference between the 5MT and 6MT transmission mount as noted in the first post. Last night I pulled the 5MT out of my 2005 WRX and bolted up a 6MT from a 2005 STi. I was able to use the stock 5MT transmission mount. It bolted right up.

Everything I've read on the forum about 6MT swaps has said the mounts are different and need to be swapped as well. Am I missing something or did I just throw a wrench into the blender?

I believe the crossmembers are the difference... there is a 5MT crossmember, and a 6MT crossmember. The mounts bolt up to the transmissions the same, but where the mounts bolt to the crossmembers are different.
IDK if that makes sense or not... lol

What you are saying makes sense but I used my old 5MT transmission mount and the 5MT cross member as well. The transmission is completely installed in the car utilizing all 5MT mounting hardware. I hadn't yet bought a 6MT mount and was putting the tranny in the car so I thought I would take a couple of measurements while I had both trannys on the floor to see what the differences were in the mounts. So I measured from the end that mates with the back of the block to the holes where the tranny mount bolts go on and the measurements were the same on both trannys. I installed the 6MT and fit the mount and cross member up to the car and all the bolt holes lined up so I just bolted it all up and called it a night.

I'm saying that you can use the 5MT mount and crossmember with either transmission without a problem, but if you try to put a 6MT mount on a 5MT crossmember it won't work.

The rear differential will likely need to be changed as the ratio's are different.
Also, the front axle shafts will likely be different, but there are ways around that.
You can run a DCCD transmission without a controller, but the center differential will default to full rear bias. Other than that it should work without a problem.
