1998 Legacy GT

Default Auto to Manual conversion

I know this Topic is beat to death, but I had a few questions I was not able to find skimming through the forums.

I just purchased a 98 Legacy GT Auto that was in Perfect condition all around. (All the Manuals with an 8 hour drive was chop shopped, or Rust buckets).

My questions are if i wanted to do a Auto to Manual swap everyone has told me its easier to find a donor car to do that swap, So you can get all the pieces not just the transmission. If my end goal is to put a Engine and Transmission from a WRX/STI in the car should I find a donor car of that style, or would it be easier to find a donor car from my style (94-98) Legacy first to get everything moved over to manual before I changed to the WRX/STI guts.

My next question is that if I do go with getting donor car from a legacy, which ones would be best. Are the guts to do a Auto- Manual the same for all the legacy models ( Wagons, Legacy L, Legacy Outbacks)?

Thanks a ton everyone, and glad to be back in the Subie Fam!
