Default 02 WRX swap into 00 OUTBACK THE HARD WAY!!

Hello everyone, so recently at work I've been tasked with swapping an 02 wrx powertrain into a 00 outback. I figured the easiest way would be to swap the wrx harness into the outback and modify electrical as i go. I am well aware that there are companies out there like iwire that merge harnesses and possibly using a baja harness but wheres the fun it that? So this is a thread where I'm going to post pictures and share my progress as i go, it'll probably take me a while to update as i go but here's the first string of it enjoy!

Harness is out, next I'm going to modify the gauge cluster harness to work with the stock outback cluster.

There's a few extra wires that have no pinout in the schematics

All warning indicators light up and appear to function correctly

And it works!! Took it on a test drive to verify operation of tach and speedo, all seem to work excellent.
These are the cluster connector pinouts I used to reference pin locations just to keep myself from getting confused.

And my personal notes for what pins swap to where in each connector in case someone is curious.

More to come as I go, and I'll try my best to document the harness modifications.
