Default 95 WRX RA into 98 forester, help?

so the current car is a 95 coupe with a swapped ej20g from a 95 RA front clip. so i want to put it all into the forester which i have stripped to the shell but the wiring harness is still there. i want to just swap my whole harness and everything , but would like to integrate the dash harness of the forester with the engine harness of the impreza.

i don"t remember if there is a super multiple junction there that might be interchangeable. plus its a real shame to give up OBD2

help

Look in the main swap threads. You can find wiring diagrams for the Forester, etc.

i assumed ob2 would be going bye bye. i wonder if i could re-pin either end of the SMJ? i wanted to keep the forester dash harness for things like the cruise control and HVAC. plus do i use my cable driven speedo adapted to the forester harness or .... speed sensor ....

thanks for all the responses

you really should do a remerge. the forester has stuff in different locations then the Impreza and I'm sure that a lot of harness plugs have changed shape. Regarding the VSS you can swap the Forester VSS into the V2 and use that. You can also do the same for the neutral and reverse switches.
