Default Auto awd donor car to V7 STi - any experiences?

Could anyone explain to me what (extra) is needed to swap a v7 STi engine and 6spd into an automatic awd car? They're a lot easier to find compared to manual ones, but I want to make sure its not going to be a pain in the ass.

Like how hard is it to get pedals and mount them and such - or do they already have a mounting position on an auto car?

Should I wait it out for a 5spd in good condition? I've also heard something about fitment issues on going from auto to manual - but i kinda ruled that out. Suggestions / Experiences welcome.

full drivetrain
pedal box
interior pieces for manual trans

this works better if you are completely replacing all of the wiring with the swap (im guessing into a GC?)

this is also quite vague

I forgot to add that I planned to swap the entire drivetrain. And the interior was kind of assumed. But other than that, all you really need is a pedal box?

Seems too easy

Hyrdro. Pedal box, clutch master cylinder, interior shift/trim pieces. That is pretty much it.

yeah, like he said above, you also need the hydrolic stuff for the clutch (kinda included in the whole "pedal box" comment)

but for the parts, yeah, its pretty much it.

BUT, the rest of the swap is the not so easy part

DoctorNick - it may seem like Im trying to copy you, but my true inspiration is this:



and this ones alright too, but dangerously close to yours - The drop on its so sweet


But this is good news - I guess it's time to go to the sleezy South Side dealer and try to pick this swapbitch up... I hope he likes cash..... all $1000 of it (i hope ). I'll bring the w-huh-man, she always gets what she wants.

Thanks for the help
