BTW, if anyone is interested, there's a front clip on CL with some parts I need. Here's the link. http://www.ultimates...154#post1082154 Thing is, I can't afford a front clip but I can deliver almost anything. Maybe someone is interested?

I wanna own a RHD subaru someday...
In my recent 2 month search for the right Legacy wagon, I ran into 2 or 3 of them on the Seattle Craigslist so they aren't impossible to find.

BIG UPDATE!!! The auto trans destroyed the front diff. Barely crawled its way onto the trailer. I'll post a few videos of what has happened since I've been AFK. Since then, the car has been lifted up onto jack stands, had the suck (i.e. the auto trans) removed, 5mt from a 92 with 4.11 ratio and exide clutch, new starter, outback hood and rear bumper, gt front bumper and wing, clutch pedal assembly (took months to get because the guy we bought it from was a complete rump roast clown and ************ tard. He didn't even include everything we paid for, didn't refund us for it, didn't ship it correctly, and when it finally got here it looked like a retarded three year old with touretts did the packaging while having a seizure.), and a lot of patience. It's almost complete except for a couple things. I still need the rear shifter bushing (ordered from subaru and getting on tuesday *crosses fingers*), the wagon MT drive shaft (only one fits > ), and reassembling the interior. That's all mechanical though. This whole project has been an electrical nightmare! After I was finally able to get a starter for it, I hooked it up, turned the key, and nothing. Fuel pump would prime, but not go while cranking. Had to jump the positive to the starter to make it crank. I've heard so many different things about wiring that I don't know what to believe. I've heard that you don't have to cut anything and it'll fire right up, that you have to cut a wire on the ecu to identify the 5mt, that the wire you just cut has to be grounded (blew the fuse instantly), the neutral safety switch has to be connected (but with no diagrams or instructions how), and that these pins are easy to find (on the gen 1 harness which was the only one I could find with instructions). I figured out that two pins shorted on the trans harness will let it crank, and the "MT" identifier pin stops the fuel pump when disconnected. Here's the big problem. It starts up, revs to 3k comes down, sputters, smells like gas, and dies. I've replaced the TPS, MAF, coil, and IAT. No change whatsoever. I also cleaned the IAT, and double checked the intake. All good. I've heard that if the ECU thinks it's still a manual that it will freak out, but I just don't know. Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated, or even just any ideas. Thanks, and hopefully I can drive this thing soon!
You would probably be better off just getting the ECU and wiring harness from a vehicle that originally had a manual transmission.

It runs! It runs!!!!!!! I did an injector swap, and the idle smoothed out. I've got it set to about 1k for asurance reasons. I found a set of 22t injectors from a motor my friend was rebuilding and slapped them in. Revs kinda high at first, but comes back down. All I have let is the driveshaft and I'm done!
Before you put the driveshaft back in, make sure that the gear ratio on the transmission matches the one on the rear diff. Bad things happen if you've got any sort of AWD binding and the ratios don't match. Bad things as in a rear diff that litterally smokes. And yes I know this from experience.

I have a set of grey top injectors that are correct for that engine for sale if you need them. Thought the 22t injectors were a higher flow rate? You may end up running pig rich.
