not exactly the 5th gear in the RS transmission is a ratio of .780:1 ratio. that is 22% over driven. The outback transmission 5th gear is .871:1 ratio which makes is only 13% over driven. so I will be at high RPM at the same speed in the out back transmission but it will get rid of that hitting a wall feeling that you get when you try to accelerate in 5th gear or so I hope.
i found a good diagram that shows where and what everything is doing. by taking that 12 pin plug that goes to the AT and jumpering pins 11 and 12 (or the thicker wires coming out of the backside of it) you are shorting out the circuit to the starter before the clutch ever comes into play. thus you wont have to push the clutch in to start the car as was stated numerous times before.
so my next step since this is already done is to check that this jumper from pin 11-12 is actually seeing gnd. if its not then i have to trace from there.
otherwise i am thinking of just installing a pushbutton start.
just finished up my auto to manual swap and have some questions. what did you guys do for the vss?
im getting codes p1116 and p1722 that have to do with the tcu. but i already removed the tcu. anyone have similar situation.
