shorter 5th = better gas mileage on road trips.

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.

so ive got the shifter thing shorted together.
and i have also jumpered two pins on the 12 pin connector that used to connect to the automatic tranny. (they are two thicker wires)

car still wont start. i have a few harness clips that arent connected to anything under the dash.

im stuck at this point.

oh yeah the o2 sensors are not connected. (but could this cause the engine to not start at all)

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.

ok i checked my little jumper wire. turns out it wasnt sending a gnd because that wire had an open that was under the heat shrink.

so i just some solid core wire in there (tested continuity with a multimeter) and got a click from the starter.

turns out my problem the whole time was that stupid jumper wire. after further troubleshooting my battery needed charging and a wire brush too.

it cranked right up after getting a jump.
