as for the reverse lights and speed sensor, wheres the wiring for these?
Or just swap the 4 pin connector from your existing 5MT harness onto the 6MT harness. You are going to have a hard time finding the mating 6pin connector that goes on the firewall connector (they are not sold separately as service parts). The connectors and terminal pins are the same. Just makes sure you do not switch around the pin locations.

I removed the neutral and back-up light sensor from the STi transmission (the sensors were gutted) and there is clear plastic tube in the back-up light sensor opening. Is that tube supposed to be there?

I have not seen that before. Did the reverse switch have a round tipped plunger in it when you removed? What do you mean by "gutted" switches? Post a photo of the switch and a clear shot inside the mating threaded ports. If not that might be the plunger you have stuck there. Will probably require a new switch....but I am guessing that you plan to reuse your WRX switches and harness.

Do we need to swap the sensors over or will the sti ones work?

By gutted I mean something like this (I threw them away):



The metal shell of the sensor was the only part left of the sensor. I have an extra set of sensor and harness from a friend that I am going to use.

Yep I bet that is the core of the switch stuck there. Remove that and make sure it is clear of any debris. Install your new switches.

anyway i took my slave and master out to bleed/install SS brake line/install new slave/put in super blue fluid. and idk but i think it was stupid simple for me to bleed lol. it took me like maybe 10 minutes... idk why people have so many problems? the res. is a little too full so i might re bleed it in the car just to make sure while the trans is out, essentially being able to "bench bleed" it again.

I asked a member that is doing a 07 STi swap to remove his back-up light sensor and he said that there is a plastic clear tube in his back-up light opening. Can anyone else confirm if that tube is supposed to be there? pics?

Default no worries brah

Well to ease your mind I was recently talking to my tuner/builder about my 6 speed swap and I mentioned that I was going to get cusco diffs and he said sage your money and get driveline shop upgraded axles instead because there qre multiple built subes puting 750+++ to the wheels running 8 and 9 and stock diffs just follow you maintenence schedule and keep and eye on all seals and gaskets

Default Finally!

You have no idea how happy I am that I finally found this thread. I may seem a little over excited, but I'm in the same boat as you were. I have an 06 TR and have a nice set of rotas that I want to keep. Your thread just put me at ease a lot and gave me a fantastic list to go off of. I would just like to know how you got the trans new for such a low price. I contacted my local dealer and they quoted me just shy of $10k...

10k for just the transmission isn't correct at all. I got it through a shop so I paid only 10% over cost and I believe it was tax exempt as well.

I knew the price was ridiculous so I hung up the phone right after the lady mentioned that price. Later some acquaintances gave me the link to a site with a full swap with the use of a fresh 07 sti trans. Just need to keep my eye out for a good 3.54 r160 and a driveshaft. How are you liking the swap? Does the change in final drive bother you at all?

Im pretty sure Mike has been all smiles since he did the swap. I sold him the first r160 he used for the swap. I know his beautiful beast is under the knife again...

Absolutely love it, I love knowing that having 400whp + isn't an issue anymore for the trans and don't have to worry about busting 2nd or 3rd gear.

As Ian said, he sold me the 1st r160...that's really my only regret is that I didn't do the r180 with hybrid axles because I found out just how weak the r160 spiders gears are...apparently the car doesn't like when kick it side ways like its a 240 while at 400wtq while smashing 2nd gear because I shredded all the teeth of the spiders...whoops...I put another r160 in and stopped drifting the car side ways and its been fine since

Question . You bought a brand new Subaru 2007 sti transmission and it came with axle seals preinstalled. Did you have to change the axle seals to fit the wrx axles or did your wrx axles slide right into the new 2007 sti tranmission with the preinstalled axle seals ?
