So I am in the middle of this project as we speak going from 00 rs auto to a 99 5mt, i've read thru a few times just looking for a solid answer.

I'm in need of some help with this project myself i keep getting confused the longer i look at it.

What exactly is required to be done to have everything working properly?

adding the ground to ecu pin (what #?) whats the easiest way to add a pin?
VSS gets wired into gauge cluster or?
inhibitor switch or parking position switch is the one needing to be spliced together for ecu to recognize park?
any wiring to be done at the TCU after removal or is this just to control cruise, abs and auto tranny stuff?

Sorry if seems unclear at all just trying to get a little backing on exactly whats got to be wired into before i start cutting and splicing.

Thanks

Default Manual Swap Parts

I started collecting parts for this but came across a good deal on a manual wagon and just got that instead. I have the following parts if anyone is interested:

5-speed transmission crossmember (from a 95 L)
Shifter and linkage (from a 95 L)
Pedal box with clutch cable (from a 96L)

I just finished this swap about 2 days ago but ive started running in to a problem of my car throwing p1507. I completely removed the tcu and spliced the ignition wire i had a high idle but once that went away the code came.
My setup is a 98rs that was an auto that is now a stock rs ecu with emanage ultimate with a ej20k and 4.444 jdm 5speed.

Does anyone know which vehicles the pedals can be sourced from? Is it possible to use clutch/brake/gas pedals from a WRX in a 99 Impreza assuming the transmission will be hydraulic?

Finished mine.

2000 4eat to 2000 5mt. Did it with the harness, was a "piece of cake". Took a total of 100-120 hours, and another 20-100 hours of reading up on material before doing it.









Well worth it.

Just finished mine up tonight. The hardest thing about it for me was removing the damn drums to remove the parking brake cables without cutting them and dealing with 2 stripped torque converter bolts and 1 stripped flex plate bolt. After that, everything was pretty much straight forward. I have a 94 L. OBD 1, no ABS, no cruise. Doesnt get more simple than that. Wiring was a breeze. Started it up, let it warm up and just went for a test drive. Shifting gears with the biggest grin on my face. Car was down for about a month and a half. Public transportation is decent where I live so getting around wasnt a problem. Now to get an alignment, adjust the parking brakes and save up for a new motor!
