i'd pull the tranny and check the clutch.. Either the throwout bearing isn't installed correctly, or maybe the pressure plate bolts aren't tight, or even the clutch disk being backwards..

Also, if you are using the RS tranny, which clutch did you buy? A wrx clutch or RS clutch???

Are you absolutely sure the clutch was bled enough? That wrx master-cyclinder is a MF’er and took me 2-days off and on to bleed, with help. Finally got it bled correctly using one of those clutch/brake one-man bleed kits. Do you have any play in the pedal up top with only firmness towards the bottom of travel?

Well it sounds like the slave-cylinder isn’t even engaging possibly due to improper bleeding. A quick simple test would be to have somebody slowly cycle the clutch pedal while you watch to see if the slave-cylinder plunger moves the clutch fork. If it’s not even moving then it may be as simple as a re-bleeding the system. If it does correctly move the clutch fork, then you have an internal clutch issue somewhere…

Either way, it’s an easy 5-minute test to see which direction to proceed…

check to see that the exhaust is not hitting the linkage... mine is doing the same thing right now in the closing stages of my swap, and we think its hitting the exhaust, but haven't checked yet. im using rs tranny.

my tranny was being ghey before i put the exhaust on.

apparently, the guy (who will remain nameless), who helped me install the shift linkage... misplaced the nut and bolt that goes into the "H" washer and the bushing on the linkage. . . so... i think he found some randbom nut and bolt... didnt fit through the washer though... and he drilled a hole through the washer to get the bolt to fit through. . .

would this cause a problem... im thinkin it might.

a) The shift linkage is hitting something preventing you from getting into gear when the car is off. Chances are when the arm from the trans rotates clockwise to get into 5th or reverse, something is hitting the trans tunnel.

b) Your clutch isn't disengaging. Check to see if the plunger is moving like others said, and if not then rebleed it. Look down into the inspection hole where the clutch fork is and see what you can see. Make sure the fork is seated in the throwout bearing. Make sure the throwout bearing is actually seated into the pressure plate.

We had a problem with a 6MT once with a crappy throwout bearing/PP where the damn thing just kept popping out. Reason #1 not to re-use them.

The slave cylinder is operating properly and engaging the shift fork. Engaging enough? I guess not, back to bleeding. The clutch is also fairly soft and definitely could use some more bleeding. Im praying that this is a hydraulic issue or something with the linkage because Im not dropping another tranny again.

btw..When I gave you a ride I was only hitting .5 bar because there was a tear in one of my silicone intercooler connectors.
