I have a question couldn't you just take a WRX 4EAT and swap it in and have the same thing?

sorta ..the wrx 4EAT is not the 'direct control' system like the forester AFAIK

I looked into buying a used one for the parts but that was as much $$$$ if not more than buying the parts for the conversion new

I don't think your smelling clutches from inside your 4EAT it doesn't work like that...check your fluid if it's burnt looking/smelling then you've got problems

most likely you were smelling something else

This mod is on my to-do list. My car is tuned for some pretty aggressive acceleration, and with the STI steering rack thrown in the mad torque steer gets tiresome, especially on rougher roads (of which we have many). I've actually scared myself a few times while getting used to wrestling with the steering wheel.

Excellent work on putting the parts list together! Good thing my husband works in the parts dept. at the local Subaru dealer...

I've also backed up the parts list and .pdf file by attaching them to the initial post, in case the links go down.

Plead Can you get a full parts list with the part numbers together for this. I couldn't figure out the matrix that Andy posted to figure out his numbers. Since you have the mad hook ups to the parts guy I would guess you could post a clear and easy to follow list. No offence Andy..


Edit: never mind I just noticed there is now a parts list that I hadn't seen previously. Sorry.

What I AM seeing is an opportunity to take all the part numbers, put together a wholesale package price for interested parties, and fill the needs. I'll be all over it Monday morning after I get finished with my Monday morning chore list and a few other things at work.

By Monday evening, I'll have a package price worked out and then it'll simply be shipping quotes to interested parties.

very nice Roo.

Andy... I was thinking that when you made the original post that you had said that we could find part numbers by looking at the diagram and substituting some letter with another letter or something like that. I might just be crazy, either way I hadn't noticed the link with the list until now.

are you going to be including the knowledge of how to disassemble and reassemble an automatic transmission in that offer

I would do it for locals ...but I'm not a vendor here....just sharing what I have figured out.............

Any update on the parts list package? I might be going under the knife, want to get a rough estimate what this would cost so I can see if I have the funds for everything.

so to touch on one of my earlier questions... are these parts the same as what is in a WRX 4EAT, or are these parts that are for newer/other market foresters? I don't know that it matters, but I was just wondering.
