    UPDATE:

    Just bought a JDM 6MT with a Suretrac front LSD and DCCD. also comes with clutch flywheel pressure plate and shifter with linkages (no shift knob) shipping from canada for $3K

    Ordered a master clutch cylinder, axle stubs, and an automatic legacy driveshaft from a junkyard and my local subaru dealership.

    everything should be arriving within a week or two.

    probably gonna order the neetronics DCCD controller.

    post more when it arrives!

    very very excited...

    Soooo, my transmission has been sitting in US customs from canada for 10 days now, but I now have all the mounts pedal assembelies, master and slave cylinders that i need and all the TIC and kartboy shifter bushing upgrades that exist including tranny crossmember bushings. Looking at putting the hydraulic pedal and master cylinder in, and realized that my firewall has no holes for it despite there being a cutout int he carpet for one.

    SO if someone could please post a shot of the pedal assembely and master clutch cylinder from both sides of the firewall out of a preferably similar model legacy i would greatly appreciate it so i can get cutting!

    Many thanks,
    Brian

    OK, I tried to take pics, but there's so much in the way that pics wouldn't be of any use to you.


    What I'd do, is get the pedal assembly mounted w/out drilling/cutting in your holes. You can use that as a template to cut your holes off of.

    Does it at least have the flat spots in the sheet metal where the holes would be? I would think that they'd be there.

    Quite alright, i managed to figure it out once the whole assembely came.

    Yeah, the flat spot is there, The pedal assembely has the bolts welded to it or i would use that as a template, What i did was used the Rubber piece of the cutout int he carpeting where the holes should be because it is the same shape as the mount side of the mastercylinder and then i cut holes in that to match essentially making a makeshift template.

    Transmission FINALLY left customs will arrive on monday. Drilling the firewall tomorrow morning, and mounting the pedal assembely so when it arrives i will be pretty much ready to go!

    Piddster: Did your pedal assembely have a third hole in the bracket that has the bolts for the master cylinder? and if so did you have anything to mount it too? because my car has nothing for that to bolt to, i imagine it should be fine, i just worry about it flexing.

    Not too shure what you're reffering to at the moment. Maybe cause its 3:39am. Do you have a pic? Mine just bolted in. But if was from a turbo legacy going into another BC.
