I Have a 2002 Forester S with a bad transmission/differential. I have a rolled 2001 Legacy L with a good transmission/differential. Can I swap the Legacy stuff into the Forester? The numbers on the Legacy are TZ1A4ZCCCA-LM and the numbers for the Forester are TZ1A3ZC3AA-PM.


Do I need to swap over the computer controller thing also (TCM)? 


Thanks for any and all information.

You will need to swap the TCU and the rear diff also.  Different final drives


Forrester = 4.44

Legacy = 4.11
