IIRC The final drive ratio on the 2.0L WRX's is 3.9 to 1. The 2.5L is 3.7 to 1. This is for manual transmissions. Autos were 4.11 and 3.9.

2002 - 2005 WRX ARE 2.0L. Which would make the final drive 3.9 on manual trans and 4.11 on autos.

Where are you reading this info? I want to read this. 2.0L are 3.90 in the fronts and 3.545 in the back because the center diff. is a 1.1:1. The 2.5L are 3.70 F+R because the center diff no longer has the 1.1:1 step down. All autos are 4.11:1. Every year every time. (were talking imprezas here, not the legacy or forester or baja)

I'm not doubting you, (you've made the swap). It just seems like there is some contradictory info and it would be nice to have a definitive answer.

hello to all you subscribers out there, plans have changed and I am actually not doing the swap anymore.. I still have the parts as I will be listing them for sale soon, plans have gave way to selling my 06 Baja Turbo and buying an 07 STI. I was not going to write up the thread that has the info as it is a looong process unless enough people want me to. To anyone that wants this thread created *and hopefully stickied* post here. Thanks!

I'm guessing the tranny could be from a legacy GT. What about the Axels, drive shaft, rear diff, would the automatic ones be good with the 5speed tranny? Does the Automatic Turbo Baja also have the rear LSD?

Other parts I guess I'd need would also be a cluster, pedals, slave/master cylinder, ecu?

Thanks for your help
Alex

Just to let you know, the Baja Auto Tranny is much better and stronger than the 5MT. You should keep the 4EAT and just upgrade the valve bodies and torque converter if you want to do anything to your tranny. Definitely ask anybody who really knows Subarus.

^true. The 4EAT is stronger than the 5MT but nohwre near as fun lol. If you want to swap in a standard transmission do a 6 speed, the 5 speed is an absolute waste of time it will break. It will, not it might, it will. I garantee it. If you or anyone needs any info on a swap let me know I can provide a lot of information. Let me know!

Dont wanna hijack this thread or anything but the title is somewhat appropriate.

We have a 03 Baja with a auto tranny and i would really like it to be tiptronic/sportshift. I know the Turbo models from 04 i think came out with them and i tried searching for some info on them without much luck but it seems that it may be the same 4eat tranny with a different control box or whatever its called.

Can anyone confirm or add to that?

The swap was definitely doable, I just didn't do it because I traded it in for an 07 STI lol. I still have *most* of the parts needed for a swap, i you want to do it, PM me and we can work out a price!

No prob, I do believe as well, that the transmission itself is the same but has a TCM as well as the valve bodies. The standard (non-sprtshift) shift only by the use of valve bodies that use intake manifold pressure to shift (more-or-less) and do not have a tansmisson controll module (TCM)

The 4EAT that has sportshift has a TCM that can manually select 1-2-3-4 when applicable. As far as I know, if you were to find a totaled 4EAT car, prefereably a baja turbo, you can pull the TCM, shifter bezel, shifter lever itself and enything else different (I'm not 100% sure) and be able to swap it right in. LMK any more questions!

Somehow i think finding a totalled one might be a mission in its own.
Will try searching though and price new too.

Any idea how long it should take to do the job?
