Default 2002 Forester L Auto to MT swap?

I'm trying to dig up info on what would be needed and what years/models can supply the parts to do an auto to 5 speed MT on my Forester L. Has anyone done this? Does it involve changing halfshafts, driveshaft too?

Questions:

Why are you doing this?

How much cost have you estimated so far for the swap?

What do you have invested into the current car for modifications?

Do you think it would be cheaper to completely swap the car as it find and buy a manual and sell the auto?

I will also add that autos are typically considered a premium item and manuals can often times cost less. You may even find out that you can upgrade to a S model at the same year, mileage, and price.

I also have a 200K mile + 95 Legacy (with 5 speed) and was toying with the idea of putting the 5 speed in the (nice, 80K mile) '02 Forester. That was assuming most parts will easily interchange.

the parts will interchange.If your current rear end is a 4.11, and your legacy is a GT, you just need to change the trans out along with a driveshaft.Best scenario would be:
same chassis Forester manual dash harness
lower mileage tranny with correct mounts

your forester has little spacers on the tranny mount, and I do not recall the 5mt and auto brackets to be the exact same.
