i want to pick up some replacement trans hose so i can replace it tonight when i get home. anyone know what size it is for sure?

1997 Impreza OBS, though all 4EAT's being nearly identical i think most EJ's should be the same.

I assume you're talking about the cooler lines? I've used 3/8" hose on EJ soobs ranging from 1990 to 2003 with no problems.

Hi. I've been using 11/32 I.D. on mine which fits pretty good.

OE molded hoses cost a ridiculous amount, at least for Impreza.

thanks guys, went perfect with the 3/8" as i had some of that.
i just used straight transmission hose. none of the bends compromise the hose at all, so molded OE hoses aren't necessary for this application. next time i'm running straight hose from the ATF cooler all the way to the transmission to eliminate all those extra clamps in between.

I did check the price when gathering parts before timing belt replacement.
Thought about replacing those hoses when the radiator was out, but the cost put me off, even though I was paying with SubaruBucks. It was something like $35 for the longer pair in the front and $18 for the shorter pair in the back.
