Just finished doing this in an 06 Saabaru.. what a PITA..I was able to get everything but the Speedo to work correctly... not sure why , I traced & spliced the wires exactly according to the manuals,maybe because I didn't swap the ECU?

that could very well be the issue.. you're using an auto ecu on a manual swap? not gonna work very well imo.

hey, question about shifter bushings. The ones that keep it stiff, and in the neutral position. Get kartboys? is that the only shifter bushings I need?
edit. because right now its kind of just sitting wherever I leave the shifter, and doesnt pop back to the middle

It's up to you I have the front and rear shifter bushings and I like them but if u have a side to side wobble when it's in gear u need a shifter joint or bushings for the shifter joint

Im collecting the last of my arts for my 98RS auto to 02WRX manual swap. I have a 95/96 legacy mt5 going in which is a push style cable clutch (correct?). Ill be using a starter from a 95/96 legacy as well, will I need to tap the hole since its a 98rs ej25d? Also is a 96 impreza pedal box going to work with my trans setup? thankyou
