Josh, this thread is great. I'm planning on swapping a 6-speed into my SS soon. I'm bookmarking this page for sure. I love how meticulous you are with your photos and write-ups.

What front axles would fit after the swap?

Looks like both my front drive axles are leaking/ripped

If you put in the axle stubs, the stock Legacy axles work fine.

You don't necessarily need to replace the axle seals, but it's probably not a bad idea. The down side is that you have to unscrew the bearing caps to replace the seals. So it's kind of your call. If you're going through the hassle, I'd also suggest replacing the outer o-ring on the bearing caps.

As for the bare minimum, you need the stubs & circlips.

Thanks for documenting this! How can you use the stock legacy rear diff when the stock is 4.11 final drive ratio and the 6MT is 4.44?

Anyway, I'm to decide between installing an LSD and stronger center diff into a 5MT or just buying a 6MT. The target application is rallyx and maybe stage rally in the future.

5MT:

* Can control front LSD pre-load and setup just for dirt.
* No car mods needed to make it fit.
* The extra strong center diff should be fine for dirt only.
* Not as strong or durable as the 6MT
* Not sure on price of having qualified transmission guy do the install.

6MT:

* Requires some car mods to get it to work.
* Maybe not as aggressive for dirt?
* DCCD would be more flexible for combined street/dirt
* Seen some used versions between $2,500 and $4,500.

The stock turbo legacy rear diff is 3.9 and so is the 6MT.

Hi Lor,

The current going throught he DCCD controller isn't very much. I would suspect the stock wiring is around 20 gauge. I think the smallest I have and typically use for applications like this is 18 gauge.

The only issue I could see using the larger wire (18 gauge) is that it wouldn't fit in the connector properly.

Hope that helps.
