Well, all, after months of tireless research, I have completed my 6 speed WRX STI transmission and drive train swap, with no major issues at all, and I'm now enjoying my 6 speed Cobb short throw shifter :)

And this was a 5-speed>>6-speed vs. AT>>6-speed, correct?

This was a swap from the Fozzie 5 speed transmission and drivetrain to a 6 speed WRX STI Transmission, Shifter, substitute Driveshaft and WRX Rear Differential while preserving correct final drive ratio, and using the stock axles and outboard set up.

Good Question, 1 is the App Radio 3 "Parking Brake" switch ;)

the other one turns on the lights for the amp rack in the back
