Just wanted to say thanks to Bigdweeb, Toto, and Wagon, and Redobs. They have helped me out alot.

Nope not yet, doing the harness this week. Been too busy to finish it. But now i have more motivation

Some of the shots were to show how close the 6spd tranny comes to the gc8 tunnel, but the autofocus automatically focused on something else haha.

actually it's really not that bad, i have the jdm ver7 manuals, and the 99RS it's alot simpler especially since i have the full harness. The only reason i'm not done yet is because i'm using the ver7 cluster.

Did you have the front subframe in place when you put the motor and tranny back in? It looks like it from the pics. How tight of a squeeze was that? How many tries did it take to go in?

After putting in the tranny from underneath, it's alot more trouble than the 5mt and it's probably easier to go from up top. Just wondering what your experience was with it.

Looks good, good luck on the wiring.

yeah i had the crossmember in place. It really wasn't too bad, took alittle finagling. The hard part was actually getting the shifter to fit in the tunnel hole while getting it into place.

We just did a 6MT swap in a GDA yesterday. We had a good tranny jack and a lift. About 6.5 hours start to finish with the rear diff/clutch swap, including a lunch break in the middle. But I've done it a couple times with my own car now, as well as the whole engine removal thing. If you change the clutch in the future, with no lift and no tranny jack it's definitely easier to take the engine out than drop the 6MT, it's a bitch. Of course once we got it all back together the used throwout bearing decided to break on us, so its gotta come apart again.

You can attach the shift linkage after the trans is in place, it only takes about 5 minutes. I've never put the trans in from the top, always the bottom. If you have no engine in there I can't see it being very hard.

We did a clutch swap on my F250 Powerstroke today, the 6MT on that thing weighs over 350lbs, it makes the 6MT Subaru trans look tiny. Now that thing was a pain in the ass to get back in...

It's been a lot of fun so far. I am still completely amazed that the engine and tranny made the swing through the bay... you know after we saved the hoist from certain doom It's unreal how much space is left in the tunnel, but it definitely fits. Can't wait to see it all together.

It was too funny... jack motor up... lift starts to tilt... jack motor up some more... lift tilts some more. "Is it supposed to do that?"






It was fun.... dirty, humid, and a bit scary at times but still fun! I think its time you get a new jack too.


BTW I think I left my chair there....
