I have a 91 Legacy Sedan with an AWD Auto in it.....It has a bad tranny........
I also have a 97 Legacy Wagon AWD Auto tranny.......with only 85,000 miles on it.....
I want to stuff it in the 91, but Dealer says it won't work....???????
Only issue I see it having, is wires not being the same from year to year....????
I already have the 97 motor in the 91 Car.....? so tranny will bolt right up to it...
Any info is greatly apreciated......
Thanks, John in Eugene

No I do not have the tranny.
The diffs should be different but swappable
The biggest thing is that the plugs on the transmission will be different.

Now at some point in the mid 90's the 4EAT was reengineered, the big difference was with the planetary sets. Also The TCU was reprogrammed for better economy and softer shifts. The one thing that is unknown to me is what was changed with the valve body. The valve body in the newer 4EAT may not be compatible with your existing TCU and your old valve body may not work with the newer 4EAT

I take it the later model you have has a seperate auto computer? In or around 97 Subaru started putting the auto computer in with the engine computer. Well on the turbo ones any way.
We also had to swap the rear diff. Went from a 4.444 to a 4.111
