2005 Legacy GT Wagon

Default 99 LGT 2.5 Auto into a 98 LGT 2.5 Manual

99 LGT 2.5 Auto into a 98 LGT 2.5 Manual

Basic question (I think)...

What problems can I prepare myself for with this swap?

I have a 98 Legacy GT manual with 154,000 miles the engine has HG
issues and I have the opportunity to buy a wrecked 99 Legacy GT auto
with only 118,000 miles (this is a limited so im going to salvage the
leather and stuff too) But most importantly I want the low mile engine.

Side note: do these run the same rear differential? Auto vs Manual?

Thanks in advance for any help.
