I dont belive anyone will give you everything you need for the swap... There is a thread in this forum of a auto to 5 speed swap... you should search for it. It will have most of the info you are looking for, only instead of the 5 you use a 6.

The 6speed swap and what it needs has also been covered if you search for it...

You will need a new ecu for you car
$500
STi 6 speed
$5k
labor... well thats out the window...

It would cost you less to trade for a manual transmission car and then you'd have a warranty, too.

If you want to do the swap, search for threads by Kha0S regarding this. He swapped a 5MT into his 02 WRX 4EAT. IIRC he had a pretty complete list of everything he needed... I think he used a lot of salvaged Legacy Turbo parts. Also wac has a nice chart here showing the ratio's for center and rear diffs out of different Subaru's. It should give you leads on what you need.

It's actually not very hard. I got all the parts including aftermarket everything for 2 grand and the install is only 10-12 hours if you know what you're doing.

No you don't. There's a single pin that you ground that fools the ECU into being a "manual" ECU.

Just converted a 5spd to 6spd for $3950 total. You will want to save your driveshaft since it can be used in the swap. Mike from Kingpin should be able to help you with most of what you need. Look to a wrecking yard for the ECU.

I have a clutch pedal assy, clutch master cyl and slave cyl just sitting around. If you decide to do it, make me an offer.

What 6MT did you put in? Have a TIN number from it? DCCD?

JDM. ED-TY856WB3KA. We think it is DCCD, but are not sure.

I LOVE this tranny.

Ah, okay... even if it is DCCD, it's an older generation (pre-AUTO mode) and has no required sensor integration.

Very cool.

Which pin do you ground to fool the ECU into MT mode from AT mode? I have the 1.8 ECU and a new five speed ready to go in. I don't need to know the pin exactly, I just need to know what its purpose is. I have detailed schematics here.


thanks!!
