How is the 6-speed matted to the 1.8? I've always been curious what it would be like.

Awesome build by the way. I love seeing members that use their cars while they're building, emphasis on being used.

Its not bad. you can launch it no worries hahaa! The 6MT has similar gear ratios to the RS. So its pretty much like an RS with an extra overdrive gear. I cruise at 3k at 80mph.

Heck yeah, I'm not building it to just look at hahaha!

It should take about a week or so to ship it. I want to get my harness back from iwire before I give full payment for the motor. I should have the harness by next week. So I'm aiming to install the motor first week of Dec. or so. I'll take all the help I can get. I may start pulling out all the L motor and wiring before

Hell yeah! 95L FTW!

No problem, glad I could help. I got some knowledge out of helping you out so it helped me too. I'm not looking foreward to properly fitting the RS dash. I think there is gonna be a bit of welding to be done. Like I said any extra help would be sweet.

Lovin your car. Jealous of the 6sp and future 207 swap. Sounds like you know your way around a toolbox. You make this stuff sound easy. Awesome finish at Subiefest with the 1.8!

Got my merged wiring harness back from IWire last night so I started ripping all the L stuff out today. I got the 1.8 out finally.






The mandatory standing int eh engine bay shot:


I think my car was sad to see the 1.8L go, it shed a single tear when I ripped out the 1.8...



I also got a good start on reinstalling the merges RS harness. I'll post up some more pics later.

I do plan on getting it bar'd. I will at the very least need to swap to the following:
  • USDM exhaust manifold
  • WRX Uppipe,
  • TD04 turbo(any stock location USDM turbo will work)
  • stock USDM Downpipe
  • WRX ECU
I should swap to the WRX intake manifold too, but its a major pain in the butt to swap. So I'm gonna try to pass without swapping the intake manifold first.

As for the tune, I'm getting a eTune from clark turner(that will be on my JDM STi ECU). I'll have a tune made just to pass the ref on the USDM 02 WRX ECU. I'll probably have Steve from 7L make the tune for the WRX ECU.
