'03 Forester 5MT into '96 OBW?
Posted 05 January 2011 - 03:13 PM
Anything else I might run into? I know there are some differences in the castings but will all the exhaust brackets bolt up, etc? I've done pre-'99 5MT's (a '97 OBW tranny) into a '99 8-bolt car which worked out very well but I haven't messed with one this new.

- Are the diff ratios the same?
- Does the newer tranny have the axle stubs sticking out or are they integrated into the axles (which then go into the 'box)
- Can you swap the clutch fork (I believe so but not sure) or make the newer fork work with cable (as you said)

I don't know when they went to having the stub on the axle rather than the tranny. Anyone that can tell me?
The fork pivot just need to move is all - I need to know if the threaded boss is present. If it is then it can be moved and the cable fork installed.
