Would it be possible to perform this swap using the original EJ25 on a 4EAT MY00 RS, with a MY02+ WRX gearbox? Or perhaps even with an STi gearbox?
I plan on converting my auto to a manual, but also plan on doing a full WRX or STi swap at some point in the far future. So perhaps if I can get a WRX or STi tranny to work with my current EJ25 in the mean time, it would be pretty cool and would save some coin. I don't mind not being turbo right now.

Hi, sorry to dig up an oldish thread but I'm doing a manual conversion on a SF5 Forester St/b (I know, not a RS or GC but it is built on the same chassis) and I've got to the point of installing the shifter but theres a plate/bracket thing on the end of shifter mount at the gearbox end but I have no idea where its supposed to go. I've looked almost everywhere, the crossmember, gearbox, floor pan but nothing. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Forester, Legacy Outaback front Crossmember, Rear Shifter Stay bushing and the bolts are Different than regular Impreza! Make sure you have those parts when swapping because w/o them the dog bone will not fit, the exhaust will sit low (angle of the drivetrain is changed) and you might hear different bangs/grinds/noises.
Have no clue if its been added before but just wanted to be helpful..
Trans, Driveshalft, SHifter, Clutch and The DogBone Are the same...
do you have anymore pictures of this because this is exactly what i have to do i cant get my key out of my car haah and i also have to do the thing with the starter to get it to start right and then i can finally be done with my swap
