Reverse Lights have nothing to do with the ECU. They are in the harness. I'm going to grab mine and take some pictures tonight (although its WRX merged so its not going to be identical to what you'll see.)

Are you not able to use a rear differential from an automatic transmission even if the Final Drive matches the new manual transmission????
Why cant you just get a manual transmission drive-shaft and call it a day?

Pics would be nice.

I am really convinced I can tackle my Version 3 STi swap.

I wasn't going to convert it to a manual, because I'd have to take everything apart anyways.

Shouldn't be too much more work right, seeing I'm swapping in the drivetrain too?
