if you do the swap you abs and cruise control won't work, unless you get a manual harness to be swap, I did mine swap and the abs md cruise control deleted
there is no way to keep abs? the guy I got my swap from handed me his harness and the manual abs from his bugeye. I have a 2000 sedan.

^That is correct. The giveaway is the little (mt), indicating the manual harness, in which the line goes straight from power supply to the relay.

Thanks soco! That's what I was thinking but don't want to end up wiring the wrong thing.

Another question. I've run into a problem where my diff cover studs don't thread into the jdm 4.44 diff cover. Anyone know the thread sizes for the jdm diff cover?

Okay so the studs I have are off of the "old" style R160. Took the studs to the hardware store and bought an m12 x 1.5. Didn't work though go figure. So that eliminates m12 x1. 25 and m12 x 1.75 and m12 x1. 5. So what are my options?

I was hoping I could just replace with some bolts but can I use the studs off of a wrx in the mean time?

That's interesting. Any chance the threads on your diff cover are damaged? I would've thought it was the same stud for anything other than possibly R180 diffs.

Ah I forgot I put this here. It was the 12 x 1.25 I was trying to thread them in having the diff in position and it wasn't working. So I put them on first.

I am in the process of doing this for an 07 wagon. I have a complete 07 sedan donor car, so my question is if I swap the whole harness, would I need to swap gauge clusters as well?

Also if I swap the harness would I still need to jump the wires to remove key from the ignition?

I'm confident you won't have to swap clusters, but why wouldn't you? It'll get rid of that nasty shift light tree thingy.

Oh, mileage. Right. I usually don't care personally, but I believe there's a way to reprogram them to display the correct mileage.

If you swap the entire harness, no cutting or splicing should be necessary, unless you're trying to add wagon features to a sedan harness, maybe.

SoCoNoHa, that is what I figured as well. Only reason I'm thinking of keeping the same cluster in the car is new car has 150,000 on it where as donor has 220,000 on the cluster
