here is the clutch pedal connector im talking about. (im thinking what if you just jumper the two terminals together what happens. ill check both sides with a volt meter)



these are off of the auto tranny. im assuming we leave them alone. will these cause a CEL.


where do these go.



and finally where do these go.


thanks for the help.

one of the 2 big plugs we took the other side from the actual transmission and just made a little harness for it.. i may have a picture of it. The 3rd picture looks like o2 sensor (white plug). I didnt do anything with the connector on the clutch.

as for the connector on the clutch, its one terminal comes from the ignition switch, other goes to the starter but its optional.

It depends on how its wired if it will work or not, thats up to you or who ever you pay to merge your harness.

if you're using a manual ECU, you cannot use an Auto Trans.

Here's the plug you mentioned and what I did with it. It connects to that selector



I ended up taking the bulky part off and just directing the end of it under the airbox where it was safe.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Letze for helping all of us in this conversion to rid the heavy, horsepower robbing 4EAT out of cars. On another note, the used 99 5 speed I installed is making horrable bearing noise and when I drained the oil it was mostly gray and had bits of bearing cage stuck to the drain plug. needless to say I am going to have to pull it out once again. i just bought a 98 outback 5 speed that had no bearing parts stuck to the drain plug so I think im going to slap it in and hope for the best. I will take pics of how I modded the starter mounting and give you a first hand pin to pin pics of the wiring before I make it look pretty and legit.

Nice, its all good with the 99 transmission as it turns out the outback transmission should have the same 1-4 gears and a shorter 5th gear.
