Default Swaping ver1 sti drivetrain into 93

Im going to start this project by doing the "easy stuff" first until I pass smog for registration purposes in July and I figured swapping the rear diff, hubs and 5MT would be a nice start. My 93 is an A/T. I have the jdm pedals is but is there any special considerations I need to take when doing this swap from A/T? Like do I have to cut holes in the firewall for the clutch master cylinder? Will these pedals bolt up under the dash? Are the axles the same?

hole in firewall already exists for brake MC. just pop the rubber plug out of the firewall, and install MC. you have to take care of the neutral switch issue. the pedals will bolt in, despite what some have said on here. i just did it, but can't put any pics up yet to disprove the masses(getting DSL)! axles im not 100%sure. i think the auto driveshaft is a different length, but i think axles are same. please verify before oredring anything. hope this helps some. good luck! keep us posted -keith

the JDM pedals won't work unless you're converting to Right Hand Drive.

With the JDM pedals, the clutch master cylinder bolts on right inline with the clutch pedal.

with the USDM pedals, the clutch master cylinder bolts right inline with the gas pedal, and then there is an intermediate rod that goes between the clutch pedal and the master cylinder to actuate it.

If you want pictures of the USDM pedal set, let me know. You can see the differences.

You'll need a USDM pedal assembly. Preferably a WRX pedal assembly. Then check the forums to get the info on dealing with the auto lockout and how to re-wire it for manual.
