2001 OBW interchanges? Starter & trans mount (5MT)

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of interchange questions pertaining to the 2001 OBW I'm fixing up to sell... I need a starter and a transmission mount and would like to find the least expensive compatible parts.


The car came with a transmission for a XXXXXX, transmission code XXXXXX.. (will update this later but it was from another Legacy according to the list below.

I installed a 5MT for a 98 2.5RS, transmission code TY752V2DAA.


The starter that came on the car works but has a broken bottom mounting ear. I'd like to put in a good starter and I'm not sure what will fit the transmission in the car with regard to syncing with the flywheel at the proper depth.

I'd imagine the flywheel is original to the 2001 OBW but I don't know.


I'm also interested in replacing the transmission mount before i sell it because it's really soggy (300,000 miles on the car, go figure!) and the previous owner mentioned that he was tired of the axles wearing out. The mount that came with the car fits on the bottom of either of the above transmissions just fine. What are my options for replacing or upgrading the transmission mount? Does it depend on how it attaches to the crossmember?




(This is a list of hydraulic clutch 4.11 ratio 5MTs that I was working off of:)

I would think with the trans mounts you have a pretty wide selection..Im 99% sure the trans mount on my 96 legacy will bolt right into my 02 WRX...So Im going to say you can prob use anything from like 95-03 at least...(manual trans only obviously)....Im sure others will chime in...
