2002 02 wrx Saab 92x


A lot of very interesting info here. Way more consolidated and to the point than other swap threads.

I too was tboned in my 02 wrx wagon and a friend of mine gave me his auto 02 wagon. He was planning on doing an STI swap and jumped on a rolling chassis that he got for a steal. Only problem is it's an auto and he didn't realize the pain in the ass it would be to convert 👎.

His loss, my gain.

So what I've gathered for my best plan of actuon is the following:

1. Swap out entire rear subframe.

2. Pull dash and replace entire dash harness and trans harness.

3. Replace entire steering column with components.

4. Drop trans, manaul ecu, engine and harness in.

5. Done.

Obviously easier said than done, but is this the gist of it? The most direct route without having to cut and splice wires? I'm not good at that and I'd like to avoid that head ache.
