Default Best ECU Wiring threads

I have a US WRX Drive train package enroute. I am looking for the best threads or other sources you guys have seen on the ECU swap and wireing.

Dose any body know if there is anyone selling conversion wiring packages?

As of now I don't believe anyone is selling them due to the fact that you have to marry the two harnesses together. There is no really easy way to do a conversion. If you can read wiring diagrams it shouldn't be too much of a problem. Sort out what parts of the harness you will need and what you won't need and get ready to cut and solder for a day or two. Make sure you label the wires very clearly, it makes the process go much faster. I just finished up a car this weekend. Started the wiring Friday night and finished it up on Saturday afternoon. I have one or two wires that i need to run still but the bulk of it is done.

Z. Where is the best place to get the wireing diagrams (98RS 5spd/ USDM 2002 WRX 5spd)? I was also considering just replaceing all the RS wireing with the WRX stuff. Whats your opinion? Ease of install ect.? Also Do you think it would be easier to use my current gauge set and add the boost stuff to it, or just try to squeeze in the WRX set?

PS. I read your threads on the 2.2t block with the DOHC heads. I was starting down that path when I found this WRX setup. It seemed like a good deal. 2002 Engine+ all Acc./ turbo ect. trans, diff, ecu+harnesses, X members. 4700 miles. Shipped for $3000. I have been looking for about the last month and this seemed to be a more than fair price. Thanks for your help, you are surely one the most reliable sounding "experts" I have seen posting. I am glad to get your input.

The bottom line is this is not an easy install. Unless you are good at soldering and reading diagrams you will have a hard time doing it and my be better off paying to have it done. It is not for the faint of heart.

You are best off using your current gauge cluster and adding boost and EGT separately as you would in the WRX. I don't think that swaping the entire harness is any easire because you have to pull the entire interior out of the car and you will then definatly be without a car for several weeks. Where as if you have all the needed items to do the swap you should be able to bang it out in 3-4 days if you go non-stop.

Where did you find your motor for that price. I'm currently in the market for a motor myself as well however I'm not looking to get the WRX transmission etc.
