QUESTION!

I'm currently swapping over my auto to manual in my 2000 RS. I'm trying to line up my manual pedals from a 2002 WRX, but the bolts don't seem to be lining up...

Should I be using a 2000-2001 pedal box, or will the 02 WRX's work?

I have a JDM STi engine with complete wiring.

I wonder if after merging the harness I don't have to worry about messing with wiring if doing the auto to manual swap.

i thought the only difference was the push-pull clutch slave cylinder. hmm. idk.


as for the wiring harness merge to jdm. i would think as long as you have that clip that goes on the pedals you would be fine.

So there are really only 2 routes you should go with this mod; Minimal and Complete

Minimal: is how I did my first swap and it's as easy as it gets. Electrical mods are: jumping the ignition key release with a screw and taping the gear selector switch to neutral. Mechanical mods are: turning the idle adjustment down until it doesn't drop below 500 rpm, swapping the trans/clutch & diff etc.

Pros: Easy as fuck, cheapest route
Cons: No ABS, Can start in gear, won't start if gear selector slips out of "N"



Complete: My current setup, just like it came from the factory. Electrical mods are: swapping the entire ECU main harness. Mechanical mods are: Swapping the ABS pump, trans/clutch & diff etc.

Pros: Complete reliability, all OEM fuctions retained
Cons: Difficult to swap harness through small hole, more expensive

Yeah my transmission went out on me today.

I'm debating if I should swap in my JDM STi motor or just put the manual transmission in it and then do it later.

Be better if I did all at once.
Do you think iWire could do wiring like that?
