Ugghhh, the internet strikes again lol. The 6 spd comes with the R180 rear diff, when fitting a 6spd into another Subaru, it's almost always done with a R180

Ahh! got me! You're exactly right and I can't read proper and good like..


I mistook N/A as not available.. I believe it it should be Not Applicable - as it is standard with a R180, whereas the 5spd WRX came with a R160 (I think)?

First two mods done!
1. I removed the horrible '90's mobile antenna, came off pretty easy with careful application of heat gun - jeepers those tihngs get hot!

2. Pulled the fuse on the radio/CD to stop the horrible whining noise of the CD player whenever I turned the car on.


It's a pity the stereo's shot, because that's about the last thing on my list of things to do.

Fortunately the engine sounds fantastic (reminds me a bit of my Dad's 911 which he had in the late 70's/early 80s 3.0L flat six I think it was), so I don't think I'll miss having tunes until it's been back on the road for quite a while.

I'm so keen to start on this, it's a good thing I don't have the cash to do anything at the moment. By not having the cash, I'm pretty much forced to research, plan things and do it right instead of my usual method of rushing at like a bull at a gate and almost invariably utilising a bit of bodging and bush technology.

There are some situations where a roll of 12guage wire, a pair of pliers and a hammer just aren't good enough.
