Default 2006 legacy GT MT engine swap to a 2006 Outback AT chassis.. any advice?

Hey everyone, new member looking for some advice to get me out of the dog house.. I procrastinated replacing my wifeís oil pan in her Ď06 outback AT and developed a major knock.. picked up a donor car for a new engine.. the donor is a 2006 legacy GT MT.. what am I getting myself into??? I see Iíll have to modify the crossmember for the uppipe.. and will have to find an Outback XT computer.. but what else am I missing and how much more complicated is the wiring gonna get? I appreciate your advice and support

It looks like there are some differences in the o2 sensor harnesses and in the fuel lines.. I have the engine out of the outback already and am waiting to pull the turbo engine until I’m 100% confident the swap is possible with what I have and will still be able to pass a state inspection. I could really use some advice here guys.

Yea also keep me in the loop. I also have a 2006 Outback 2.5i and was looking into picking up an XT full swap to rebuild.

Wiring is likely going to be a nightmare. I'm going to be helping a buddy with a stock impreza-wrx swap (wrecked his but the driveline is still mint). What we've decided on is to fully remove both interiors to swap the entire loom. Try to keep things in line with tape/labels. Subaru is pretty bad at colour codes so if you need to splice anything use a multimeter.

From experience with my last swap, splicing looms is not at all worth the time if you have a loom that will work, the number of wires gets out of hand very quickly.

I'm not a mechanic, but i can tell you that some good time and effort is going to be needed to do this project of yours. Best of luck to you!
