I was going to go back and re-check this but I can't find where the Subaru part number for the different gear sets available. I think the number was on the box it came in but it's gone now. I ordered from Chaplin's Subaru, Bellview, WA bit the order form doesn't say what gear ratio the part number is.... The grey matter ain't what it used to be.

Bumping this up.

Ok, so I found a 03 wrx trans with a bad third gear for $150 smackers... It has a good 5th gear/synchro and shift fork so I am going to swap these over to this 2000 outback 4.11 FD tranny that I have apart right now.

STORM or anyone else,

Did you use the big thick C-clip from your stock trans with the taller 5th or the one from the donor trans for the clearance? I wanted to make sure what I need to tell the place that I might be taking both the gear stacks from both trans to. How much was the 50mm socket? There is a cool place here who can weld a piece of pipe in between the 2 cut sections of the 50mm socket. I am thinking it would be cheaper for me to just buy a 50mm socket and modify it, but I will check around a few places.

How long of a piece of pipe and what gauge steel did you guys use who modified the 50mm socket? Did you guys use the hub, slider and shift fork from your stock trans with the new to you wrx 5th gears?

Really wanting to get this trans back together since I finally have my jdm dohc NA motor here and would like to drive my car again...

I did re use the C-clip, fork, etc.. The only thing I did buy new (besides the gears) was the 50 mm nut. I was able to find a 50mm socket at a used too place so it was only a few bucks. The pipe was around 6 inches long and at least 1/8" thick wall.

Thanks for the reply. So the added length of pipe was 6 inches then welded into the two halves of the socket? I am guessing 11 gauge if it was 1/8" thick. Did you already have a torque wrench to go up to 190 ft lbs or did you find someone with one?

The subaru place here locally might be able to do it for me. The service guy was going to check some stuff and get back to me and let me know what they could do. I found a 50mm socket for like $30 on ebay, so I might land up going that route and just have them torque both the 50mm and 36mm nuts after making sure everything I swapped over looked good.

Once I get this tranny back together, then I can get that and this engine in the car and finally drive it again...

Sooo...

I ordered a 50mm impact deep wall socket should be here soon. I also found a nice cobalt 1/2" drive torque wrench that goes from 50 - 250 ft lbs on sale for $60 regular like $98 so now I have something to torque that big nut down along with the 36mm nut... Can do axle nuts now to.

I'll extend the socket like 2 inches and have it welded up and then figure out how I am going to keep both shafts from spinning once I try to take the big 50mm nut off.

So, did you guys leave the the associated parts on the shafts and just switched over both gears and that was it?

Does anyone have a parts diagram of the 02-05 wrx 5 spd 5th gear stuff? The tranny I got is half apart including the 5th gear stuff so I need to know what I exactly need and don't need to swap over onto the 4.11 tranny for the 5th gear.

Sounds tempting. The .871 is killing me on the higheay and I have a good .780 trans sitting around somewhere. I've swapped center diffs before with trans still in car. This just sounds like a couple extra steps

Default index the nut

When I did my 5th gear swap i just indexed the nut and used a big pipe wrench to loosen and tighten.

You didn't torque the 2 nuts 36 and 50mm ones down on reassembly?

Which 5th gear swap did you do?
