Not sure, check the classifieds. There are probably some in there.

RS Harnesses run ~ 70-100 bucks
A wire merge done by iWire is $600

I did my own merge for my swap, it's actually REALLY easy.

Check RS25 for all swap needs, there is every little bit of info you can think of already posted somewhere.

What all had to be done? You're not an electrical genius and this isn't all going to blow my mind, is it?

Nah it's fairly simple stuff, but it depends what engine and what goes to what.

Basically to shorten it all:

Find the ECU connections that need to be made in the WRX harness

Figure out if any of the signals are common (MIL, tach, etc)

Merge those to your harness, and take out all the RS ECU wires and add in the WRX signals.

All in all for me it was like 13 wires at the end of the day, but to find them, splice them, make sure they were correct before 12V was sent though, and to make them look pretty it took well over 20 hours.

It'd be like 5 more connections for an OBD II motor, and once you've done one harness you can do them all

The biggest problem with having a birthday on Jan 1 is that everyone already has a hangover...

Look what I put together for $11! ($8 for the light kit/wiring/switch, and $3 for the aluminum stock) It's mounted on the front license plate bracket, and adds 110W worth of extra lighting!

I've been wanting to add lights to my subie for years but I can't seem to rationalize paying $250 for the light bar alone. I've thought about this, do you get much light dancing? Or whatever its called when they wiggle op and down and appear to be lose.

That's how it is in most college towns too. Money is more important than law!

We should meet at Bittersweet Saturday I'll be there all day, we could meet in the parking lot and then go in the lodge/bar and chill.

I am good for Friday evening most likely also.

Nice! The lodge serves alcohol, but you don't have to be 21 to enter, so its win-win if we want to meet there. Lets see what others think of the idea...
