I know that this is not true. I am using a 95 L MT fwd starter on a 99 phase II rs MT transmission. worked great and saved me alot of money for the Auto to MT swap.

Until you learn that phase 2 Motors and Transmissions Use a 6 bolt system where Phase 1 uses a 4 bolt system. so when you mix and match you get problems.

When I used a phase 2 transmission on my phase 1 Ej25D block I was forced to tap out the hole that would have lead to a bolt I didnt have, I tapped it out and bolted the starter to the transmission.

So the starter you use needs to math the motor not the tranny? I'm using a 95-96 legacy tranny so will I be able to use say an RS clutch kit and master and slave clutch?

Sat down to check something, Starters themselves are the same. sorry about that.

The implamentation is different though, so if you have a choice match your phase transmission with your phase engine

Phase 2 engines can accept both phases without problems

Phase 1 engines require the transmission have a hole tapped and the starter's bracket needs to be bored/drilled out larger to accommodate a larger bolt.

current opinion, any manual trans starter should work, but for sake of longevity get a newer starter.

just got the subie a week or so ago and already halfway done with this swap. wired up the pedals today. good to know that clip on the clutch pedal is actually needed.

i better get to wiring that thing up to the ignition.

any tips. like, "dont cross the wires it'll fry your starter."

I had to get a manual starter for my 04 wrx trans swap. The auto one's hole was too small.
