Default WRX Manual-to-Automatic?

I hope this is in the right place. It was a toss-up between here and the trans forum. Anyway, I was wondering what would be needed to do this. I figure the transmission (obviously), auto trans mount, Computer for auto equipped WRX's..what else? I was considering having one "built" plus I've never endeared myself to the manuals performance/operation.

* short propshaft
* new rear differential (4.111 if you go to WRX 4EAT)
* new transmission crossmember
* starter
* wiring (new speed sensor path through TCU, neutral sense, etc.)
* inhibitor switch (shifter) assembly and cable
* new brake pedal assembly
* possibly a new ECU (jury is still out on this one)
* engine drive plate (flexplate)
* torque converter

I'm currently going in the opposite direction.

Thanks for the info. Man, I had no idea! Maybe I'll rethink that Gimmie Gears gear set

Heh, certainly, going from AT to MT is easier than the other direction, and even that is shaping up to be a really big project. So far, I have the old drivetrain ripped out, and I have the local driveline shop working on the rear differential.

Tomorrow is a trip to the junkyard to find lots of little odds and ends to keep the project rolling. Two decent days of work just to remove the old driveline components... it's amazing how many of those bolts seize up over time.

If you don't do the labor yourself, expect at least 20 hours of pro labor, up to 40. The only reasonable route is to go through a shop with a "large job" flat rate. Parts are going to be deep into the thousands for new parts. still $2k or so even if you buy used/junkyard.

Hey guys. That sounds really good but one of my friends who went through that swap (AT to MT) said it caused so many problems. Also when he was trying to sell his car, he had to sell it for not even half of kbb price since the transmission didn't match the vin # info. This is what I heard so I think you might have to do some research on resell value or what it might cause.

If you're interested in an MY00 RS AT, then I'm selling everything you need for pretty cheap. The only thing you'll need to find is the rear diff. Email me if you decide to do that.
