Default '02 JDM sti 6 speed into '07 wrx auto

I have a 2007 WRX auto and want to swap in an '02 JDM sti 6 speed and full running gear. Mechanically everything should fit but I am wondering what ECU and DBW problems I may encounter. Can anyone help? Is this swap possible?

Sell your car, buy a bugeye and do the 6spd swap. Your 07 is so new you'll lose a bunch on resale with a car that will confuse/ upset DMV , emissions, and insurance agents nationwide.

Ask me how I know, and search my SN in here or the transmission section and you'll find everything you need to know.

AT to 6MT swap is possible and is the same as a 5MT to 6MT swap with the addition of some pedals, center console and a little wiring. No ECU issues after a flash and no DBW issues.

It's your car, do what you want. Just be prepared for it.

Thanks for the advice but I don't plan on getting rid of the car anytime soon if at all. Eventually it will probabley just become a track only car or if sold, I imagine it would be to someone in the community who knew the time and money that went into it. Also the transmission may be older in years but it has less miles anyways. Plus I am in Canada so no emmisions agents here as for insurance agents, they are already always confused by the VIN because it is a USDM car which I imported.

Will do. Just picked up the transmission, drive shaft, diffs, axels, rear hubs, and brembos two days ago. Once I have my other project done (so I have somthing to drive if problems arise with swap) then I will begin the swap.

I don't think you should have any problems with the right parts.

Sounds like you also need clutch, flywheel, slave cylinder, shifter linkage

You should be able to swap in your transmission harness from your 07 without a problem. If it has dccd, you can just get the wires and leave it in open or get a manual dccd controller.

The wiring is cake. You can do it one of two ways:

- Use the existing wires that go from the engine bulkhead to the TCU (have a multimeter on hand.
- Or run new wires.

I put a vote on using the existing wires from the engine bulkhead. Use GOOD wiring to shrink-wrap.

Go to Scoobymods.com to see what I wrote on the wiring.
