snowdrift, is this image of a EVO or subaru?
Are their any exploded views of our system in both the CVT and the 5MT? either here or someplace else?

on the 5MT, do they not have the fwd fuse that you can disengage or do you have to actually pull a shaft to unlock the rears?

Anyone : I'd like to buy the FSM but if the ebayers are simply stealing from subaru by reselling copies then i'd rather not feed them. Anyone have an idea on this?
