    Learned A valuable lesson.

    Be very careful when installing and removing axles. Ill have to replace an axle seal now *head desk*

    Have to drain the trans again to fix the seal since I found out while I was filling it...

    07 WRX slave cylinder + legacy slave are not the same. Interferes with the throttle assembly.

    I'll be able to use the wrx slave once I finish the swap though.

    Filled everything with fluids.

    Starter is in

    Pedal assembly is in.

    I think I'm going to let the trans leak at least till I get it home. Tired of it sitting in my friends driveway.

    *fingers crossed* find a junkyard slave and getrdun tomorrow. If not it will be finished and home next week and ill order the trans seal just finish it all at once.

    Oh god, axle seals... You will need to lookup the service manual procedure on you to set the diff preload, as the thing that houses the seal also sets the load.

    NSS is wired
    Reverse is wired.

    Just need to ground pin 81 and put in 1 more bolt than I should be good to drive it. (at least a little bit)

    Still need to repair the axle seal

    5 spd swap complete ish...

    Axle seal repaired

    Car runs drove it home in limp mode.

    ABS light is on
    CEL is on P1507 and another related code

    Need to attach pin 82 to the NSS and ground the other side than hopefully Ill be good to go!

    Also adjust the TPS because when it wasn't completely in limp mode it was TERRIBLE off and on throttle

    Might also need to bleed the brakes the have been quite squishy since the swap not sure why

    Also need to remove the tone rings on the wrx axles.

    Well conflabit all!

    Almost 100% sure I fried the ecu...

    Went to fix the P1507 today. Wired from ecu pin 82 to NSS and grounded other side of NSS to Starter ground.

    Pretty sure eithier back current fed into ecu and killed it or it fed back current because of wrong year NSS. Need to get a pre 05 nss.

    OBD2 Port shows no connection to ECU but ecu light is on when key is in on position. Cranks infinitely. Great....

    Hopefully get a few ECUs a main relay some sbf2 fuses and track this sucker down...

    Lucy im sorry ill figure it out promise

    Pretty sure I have a leak in my brake system somewhere. Fluid was low causing light to turn on which might also explain my squsihy pedal. Its guns be a bad time if its the booster but it is what it is.

    So picked up the brake lines and couplers and flaring tool. Around 2am last night gave up as It just would not stop leaking.

    5 out of 6 of the flares dont leak. Need to finish the least one and bleed the brake system.

    Wish me luck!

    Figured out what was wrong. Make sure you have the right couplers when replacing harlines.

    Drove the car around today and love it as a manual.

    Had a mechanic friend take a look at it.

    Needs a new pressure plate(heavy ass clutch) and input shaft bearing. Whines pretty bad in 5th gear.

    But I'm happy!

    Update on wrx swap

    Changed my mind in terms of interior swap. I think I'm just going to have Iwire do a harness merge for me. Not committed to the idea of cutting more holes in the fire wall + more downtime. Pull the dash once. Send it out for the harness merge while the engine is being built plug it all in and on my way!

    That's pretty cool that you can just send the loom off to get merged! Makes the process pretty accessible to anyone who can pull a motor out!

    Bug guard was broken while trying to fix the hood latch. It works now perfectly.

    I don't mind the bug guard less look but It def has to come back!

    Hood Deflector / Bug Shield is a direct fit for the following:

    1995-1999 Subaru Legacy
    1995-1999 Subaru Outback
