2002 forester transmission compatibility

Recommended Posts

Hey crew, 

I have a customers 2002 forester S automatic trans. 260+K miles TZ1A3ZC2AA

Its making a noise/ whine at higher speeds when you are accelerating. When you let off the gas it goes awat. to me it sounds like a bearing in the front diff.

Anyways i am doing an engine swap and was going to swap the trans since its so easy to do with the engine out. 

I have a good trans from a 99 obw TZ1A2ZJEBA and a trans from a 2000 OBW TZ1A4ZCABA

Both are phase 2, 8 bolt with spin on filters... 

I feel like i have done these swaps before and they worked fine.. 

Any thoughts?

As long as the Rear diff matches the Trans you are good.

yeah i was more worried about the trans computers having an issue

i think all the 99-2003 outbacks and 2000-2003 forester auto trans have a 4.44 final drive.
