Default 03 swap

posted in the trans section but no responses so I'm trying here.

I've found mixed answers but I'd like some clarity.

currently drive an 03 outback sport 4eat

I have a 03 wrx (sedan) 4eat parts car

Will be swapping engines in the next coming months but I have some confusion on driveline swap.

I want the VTC (or what ever its calles) trans in my wagon.

1
know sedan axles will not work on a wagon but will wrx wagon axles work with sedan diffs

2
Will the rear diff bolt to my current rear subframe or would I need a wrx wagon one?

3
can I reuse my drive shaft? have mixed reviews on if all auto driveshaft are the same

4
do I need all 3 diffs?

5
does anyone have a link to removing the trans wiring and tcu?

not sure if this shpuls go here or in the conversions forum. if theirs a thread about this I'm missing please direct me

sorry about the cross posting just trying to get everything underway soonish

Really man as long as you swap the tranny and rear diff together you shouldn't have any problems and yes your driveshaft should work fine. Rear diffs will swap easily front and center are in the trans housing just swap the whole thing. Axles will just come down to male or female stubs at the tranny

My best suggestion is to remove your intercooler and charge piping. Follow the wires to the trans then from the trans to the control unit. My trans and axles came from an 04 sedan and went into an 05 wagon it was a direct swap and the axles locked in and sealed just like they should

A quick search on the nasioc search feature revealed a bunch of irrelevant information. A quick Google search lead me to a thread...a NASIOC thread that says it is to the left of your steering column on the drivers side.
