Depends on the year and model. I had a JDM 4EAT trans from an early Forester STi. The gear ratios were the same as my 04 XT, but the final drive was different.Is there any difference between a Japanese domestic automatic trans and one sent to the US? The vin on my 98 Forester says it was built in Japan.
How do I tell if it's USDM or import?All of the Foresters were built in Japan. There are some differences between the older STI autos and ours, but I can't remember. Hopefully Silke will chime in, she had one kicking around for a while. Just for clarification your is a USDM and not an import right?
