I bet the car had been sitting for a while before you bought it. It's just condensation; don't worry about it.

Fixed your typo for you. If you are replacing a 5sp with another, it's pretty straight forward. But no, not all are created equal. Forester had a different final drive ratio than WRX. You could...

Your "specialist" should know that 02 doesn't have a MAF sensor.:biggrin: (I am pretty sure 98-00 was MAF, and 01-02 was MAP sensor) With that many miles on it, I would start with the basics. ...

Remove the dogbone. You have to. The tranny is sitting on top of a mount at the rear, and the dogbone keeps the tranny (and engine) from coming up in the front. If you don't remove it, something...

What ever you do, buy good bolts. The grade 8.8 from HD or Lowes won't do it. Search for grade 10.9. They have them too, but are a little more difficult to find.
