    We have been over this. The EJ22 is much more reliable.

    Car has been back up and running for a few weeks now. Hardly have anytime to work on her between everything that is going on. Here is a recent picture of her. Still quite dirty. Also picked up some tires from @WPEC hopefully will get a chance to throw them on before I get the snowflakes back on for the winter. "new" tires will be going on the snowflakes as well. Picked up some charms from @Yamazaki will have pictures of their placement soon.



    Will post pictures with tire setup soon

    Thanks everyone!!! Made some more progress. Picking up a bumper and got a new set of shoes. Had a minor fender bender in the snow a few months back. May need to replace a control arm and ball joint but nothing cosmetic other than needing a new rim lol. Hit the curb pretty hard doing like 10 in the black ice.... for the time being it drives just fine. getting SUPER tired of my grinding transmission and squeaks. So once its all aligned ill have some other "progress" updates soon!

    I think those wheels look much better on a 2nd gen than they would have on a 4th gen.

    Congrats! That WRX looks to be the perfect donor for your GT. Having a complete car will make the job much easier as well.

    The Rays wheels look awesome on your car - they definitely suit the 2nd gen very well.

    Cant wait to start. Hopefully picking up a 5mt drive shaft and pedal assembly soon!

    5 speed swap will be the first stage! Engine will be pulled out to have shortblock rebuilt for reliability(and boost).

    Once its finished it'll go back in and both cars will get gutted. Its a process but I will keep you all posted!

    Picked up my 5mt drive shaft, 5mt pedal assembly, 5mt shift knob, 5MT shifter surround, woodgrain vent for dash on a whim(lucky for me since my original one just broke), some extra gt fogs (I hoard them Ill admit it) and all hardware needed.

    Just need an NSS now and maybe a Reverse switch but I think I can reuse that from the AT Tranny!

    Will be posting pictures as I make progress!

    Made some more progress. Put the car up on jack stands. Invested in a car port. Planning the tranny pull for this Friday.

    Is it bad that I just want to do it on my own? lol so many friends have offered. I just don't trust them all with wrenches on my car

    Made some more progress.. Sorry for not posting pictures yet. A bit lazy atm. lol but I have tons.

    Rear diff and drive shaft are pulled exhaust is pulled. Down pipe, radiator, and intercooler have been removed. (all in 1 day)

    Transmission is ready to drop as well. Just being held on by ground and support.

    Still need to remove shifter assy but that's not so bad.

    As well as make some drive-shaft clearance but Ill get it done.

    Going to borrow a harbor freight low lift trans jack and get the job done

    I think that will be it for this weekend.

    Would start work on Lucy but have a few things to take care of for my business. Might need some help with that hefty auto trans not looking forward to it. lol

    Anyone have insight for the wiring of the VSS and NSS? as well as tricking the ECU and TCU. I found a couple links already but never hurts to have too much info.

    Ask Tim about the wiring for the VSS and NSS and the ECU/TCU. He has done that on his car and a friend's car.

    So I got the transmission out on Saturday quite the struggle and learning experience. If someone tells you to empty the trans first... just do it buy the T65 and just do it

    Besides that. Using the steering to pull the axles from the trans is really helpful.

    Used a harbor freight jack and another jack to help with the lifting and positioning I needed

    Manual trans is actually much lighter than I was expecting.

    I'll be starting the transmissions swap this Friday. Ill keep you guys posted!

    Starting to gut the donor now!

    It has unpainted mirrors. As I discussed with Hinyo, I think its a WRX TR. All 06-07 WRXs had the 4/2 pots.

    Wont be using the 4 Pot/ 2 Pot setup they will be for sale soon!

    Already have plenty of braking power from my brake upgrades I did before the swap.

    Picked up some other goodies for the swap today. I'll put them on once the swap is completed

    Auto Transmission is out!

    Swapped over the axles from the WRX. 98 Legacy Axles from the auto are NOT the same as the 2007 WRX axles. One is a male type one is a female type.

    Went much easier than I thought it would.

    Swapped over the speed sensor for the time being as well. Had to break the plastic speed sensor from the 07 to put the metal one from the 98. Not sure the they changed the material. Would have preffered it in metal.

    I was going to go without it but id rather not have the car in limp mode.

    Trans and diff are in place.

    Clutch is in.

    Things still left to do?

    Pedal assembly.

    Lift trans and diff into place

    NSS and REV wiring

    bolt the manual starter in

    Still a ways to go but its progress!

    Ill keep you guys posted
