Hello guys, I recently picked up an 02 WRX wagon and plan on swapping the engine into my outback. I have done a lot of research and feel pretty confident about it however I have a few questions.

The WRX is automatic, and my Outback is manual. I plan on keeping the manual trans and just swapping the motor. I plan on using the harness and ECU from the WRX. Is there anything else specific I have to do?

Thanks everyone!

sure you could keep the trans if you want. also you will need to merge the wrx harness with yours unless you swap the wrx dash into your obs.

Okay yeah I figured. So in that case I don't need to worry about the transmission differences and just swap it like normal with the wiring?

you will also need a stronger clutch that matches your NA trans. most people go with the act hdss...
