That trans will bolt up to any EG, EJ or EZ engine. Without a dccd controller, it is the sketchiest Subaru ever in the snow

Do you know if I’ll need a new trans support or with the stock one fit?
Also are auto and manual trans supports different?

Auto and manual are different, and I used a 5 speed manual crossmember on my 6 speed. I heard the crossmember bushing is different, but I know a buddy who make his 5 speed bushing work. I ordered the 6 speed Group-N (stiffer) bushing for mine

More questions :D

will a Ver8 cross member fit under a GC8? or will a 2004 trans cross member fit?

Yes and yes. A factory automatic car may have plastic "stickers" covering two of the bolt holes, but they are there.
