Re: Megasquirt DIYPNP

Never finished this project. The car is still sitting in the garage, with the ECU on the seat. We never were able to overcome the RPM issue. I've got too much money tied up into the project to give up, but it's probably going to sit for a while.

Re: 95 ej18 impreza engine harness wiring qustions

We are doing a swap and we are missing the part of the engine harness that runs between the blue and grey connectors and the ecu in the above picture. Is that harness section ej18 specific? Don't believe so, I will check my FSM tonight. Does anyone know when they switched from the round connectors t...

Re: Manual Transmission internal Speedo Gear

Transmission is removed from the car and the case must be split. Once the halves are separated, you'll have access to the speedo gear.

Re: Engine Transmission Swap

That's kind of strange, the 6 holes were introduced with phase 2, 4 were from phase 1.

They'll still line up, the only difference you'll have to look at and work with is how the starter bolts in. Pretty sure Phase 1 used 1 studs on the starter and phase 2 was 1 stud one bolt.

Re: Engine Transmission Swap

Are you sure the 2.5 in your 1999 Legacy is Phase 1? If it's SOHC it's Phase 2. 1999 was the year of the Phase 2 change over, unless you got some mix of unknown parts. As far as bolting things up, they'll go together the exact same way. Block bolting points are the same. Regarding differences betwee...

Check out the Transmission Information Chart here: http://www.northursalia.com/techdocs/techdocs.html You'll get all your compatible transmissions. You have to pay close attention to the final drive ratios (the 3.9 and 4.11 numbers) - you'll see that a 2000 Legacy base model has 3.9 gearing where th...

Re: Possibly blown transmission, real quick question

All misinformation so far. It's not clear to me why you're trying to swap drivetrain - Auto to manual project? A few basic rules. We're dealing with AWD, so there are front diff ratios and rear diff ratios. These MUST match. You can't run a 3.9 trans and a 4.11 rear diff. There's a great transmissio...

Re: Welded tranny crossmember?

I agree, lining those holes up is always a PITA.

I think if you wanted to weld something, you could consider boxing in the transmission mount itself. There's a lot of play to be lost there.

Re: 91ss. Broken Shift Forks/Clutch Fork

That sounds like a good plan. Personally I'd have made the WRX trans work. The 3.54 gearing comes from the transfer gears, not the center diff. You could swap the transfer case, center diff, and transfer gears from your legacy trans into the WRX trans and it would give you the 3.9 gearing. As far as...

Re: problems with wrx trans fitting into my 91 SS

This thread is confusing.

So you were trying to replace the transmission with a WRX unit, but when you found out the FD from the WRX was 3.54 you decided to try and fix the old trans? And for some reason your exhaust doesn't fit right? I'd like to help but I need a backstory.

Re: swapping to non turbo rear brake set up?

The benefits of a vented rear rotor are pretty negligible for most drivers. If we were talking a change in rotor diameter then it might be a bigger deal. If I was getting cheap parts, I'd probably swap too.

You are correct, your only other option would be to source a low mileage replacement hub from a parts car.

Re: '94 L AWD clutch? (will a '06 WRX clutch fit?)

The 06 bearing slides onto the fork like the turbo throwout bearing does. No clips are used. The new bearing also has a larger diameter than the old one, so the fork was widened to account for that.

Re: '94 L AWD clutch? (will a '06 WRX clutch fit?)

Ah - I see. Technically the 06 fork could be cut and welded with a cable clutch fork end to fit. That would probably be easier than trying to adapt the end of the cable fork to fit the 06 throwout bearing.
