Default Auto to Manual swap 92 Legacy

Hey everyone,

Up for technical discussion is my project. I have an old 92 Legacy mail wagon that I want to convert from boring to stick shift fun. The donor car that the transmissions is coming out of is a 2000 2.5RS.

I've searched around online and found a majority of what I need to do but what I'm looking at getting educated on is what should I look out for/people with previous experience shoot me some tips/advice.

You will need rhd pedals from overseas. The UK and Japan are the usual sources. The wiring is simple.

right hand drive impreza pedals are the same and probably easier to find. You might even find them in the US, some people buy front clips and don't do the rhd swap.

Issue has come up.

GC6 transmissions isn't mounting up to the EJ22. It's stuck and I've still got an inch to go. I don't want to pull the engine out too.

Any hints?

Found my issue. The clutch had somehow snuck it's way out of alignment and shifted itself very slightly causing the spline from the trans to be stuck. It was going in the hole. But not INTO the hole. Ayyyyyyyy

Trans is up. Driveshaft too short due to transmission length. Looking for new one.

Well I got the driveshaft issue all sorted out.

I've unplugged the TCU and the Shift lock box thingamabobmcdoodle.

Now I need to merge the Reverse/neutral plug to the reverse/neutral plugs to make it work. I still need to snip the AT/MT identifier pin on the ECU and stuff too.

My pedals aren't fitting so I'm going to cut the 2.5rs assembly and bolt it in. I'm using a cylinder from my bugeye to work with the slave cylinder.

I feel like I'm missing something but we'll see.
