Default 2008 WRX 5speed with DCCD help

Hi all, I'm getting myself into some new/old stuff and just want to make sure I'm not overlooking anything, so any and all input would be greatly appreciated.

I currently have an 08 wrx with the stock 5speed (and the viscous center diff). I'm getting my hands on a 2000 STI 5spd RA DCCD center diff and housing.

According to what I've looked up, the old DCCD & housing should be a straight bolt on to my stock 5spd transmission, no need to change anything else. DCCDpro guys on the phone said their controller supports this model DCCD. I'm having the seller check the coil resistance (should be ~3-4ohms according to DCCDpro).

Now, I'd really like to know if there's anything I'm missing or should look at or keep in mind. I've thoroughly searched as much Nasioc and Google as I could, but it seems not many people have done this swap, and less have posted about it. So any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Treat it like any DCCD tranny. Plug in your controller and have fun.

Got ahold of your dccd yet? I got mine in this last weekend. Only problem I had was the anti rotate pin was not bent enough and locked up the transfer gears. A gentle tap with the hammer and everything goes in perfect.

It is super easy to install if you take the dccd out. It saves you weight and let's you align the shifter rod. You can get to the 10mm screw holding the shift rod inside the reverse detent with a open end box end wrench.
