I am really glad to announce that I finished installing a .634 5th gearset (that I got from a 5MT diesel) into my 5MT on my Forester!

Thanks to everyone for everything that was posted here... it really helped and encouraged me to do the job.

I did it with the gearbox out of the car because I changed the whole case and the front differential as well. But, after putting everything together I realised I installed the hub for the 5th gear backwards and I solved that with the transmission on the car - more details and a picture for that here: - so, I guess you could do the 5th gearset change with the transmission on the car but you need the gearpuller and the 50mm extra deep impact socket... But there is space. I recommend getting the transmission out of the car though - this way you can inspect the clutch. Plus, putting back the extension case in the horizontal position was a real pain!
