^^ practically bolts to my Nissan motor, so maybe you'll be as lucky. Only a 32mm thick adapter plate and a little machining to the Suby flywheel. A Nissan truck clutch slave bolts on and is lower profile.

The center diff is usually worth a bit more then the coupler. But knowing you... you'll probably be machining your own, in which case I can use one (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Nice score Mike! Yes the center diff is one of the weak points on AWD cars so it's worth $$$ and you pull it out to convert to 2WD. I think I sold mine for $250 way back in 2012.

We have a runner, Part 2.

Since the last time I posted the motor running I have done a few things that made me question whether or not it would ever run again.

Replaced vehicle wiring with Infinitybox CAN bus system.

Took apart the factory Honda engine wiring harness, removed a few feet from it due to it being too long. Also recovered all the wires.

Installed new intake manifold which required me to come up with a new way to control the throttle body. In the end I used a /6 throttle cable and made an adapter to screw on a short section of cable to attach to the Honda TB.

Next will be using the Amazon sourced cooling system vacuum purge and coolant refill kit to get all the air out of the system. So far no leaks.

Now to get insurance for it so I can register it to test it out on the street.

The PO of my 914 told me the transmission is in need of internal work, I'm going to drive as is for now. (Once I do drive it)

However this 2014 WRX 5 speed with 30K miles just happened to go up for sale not too far from me. I hope I can sell the rear diff to offset the cost.



What is the model #? How much did you pay for it? Once you remove the center differential you'll need to add 12-14 oz's of trans oil over the std amount. Park it level then mark the dipstick w/ the "new full" mark.

Thanks for the info.

TY758VW1AA, 2014 WRX that was converted to 6 speed.
I'm confused by the axles or lack of axles I should say. Still trying to wrap my head around if I need axles with a drive spline for inside the transmission or get the stub axles.

That was the last year for that model # transmission. Converted to a 6 speed? Wow, that's a new one. I'll look into that. The final drive will be 3.9 regardless. Although I'm not sure the quantity of oil I stated is accurate given it's been converted to a 6 speed. I came to this conclusion by immersing the center diff and related bearings and washers in a can of transmission oil and measuring the displacement. You can do the same thing after removing the diff. Just make sure that you measure the amount of oil that the rear cone takes vs. the flat plate you will use in it's place. The glove is blocking the view of the output. Post another pic of that area.

Very cool. It is great to hear it running and it sounds good. Will it be making an appearance at WCR? Regardless, hope to see it one day. Congratulations Mike. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

I think the 5MT was removed to install a 6 speed trans Kent. That one should be a 5.

On the axles/joints, I think @BIGKAT_83 has used male Subaru CV joints inboard, you just have to lower the trailing arm to get them in. He would know a lot more than me. On mine I used stub axles and female CVs. Mine is a 2006 removed for the same reason (converted car to 6 speed trans).

^thanks, I talked to my friend Steve last night, he made the CV adapters that use the 100mm CV joints which I happen to be using.

He might have a set of adapters left over.

Those look like an exact replacement for the ones offered by Subarugears. They look like some great workmanship!

Not only a runner also a driver.

I drove it around the block for the 1st time right before I hooked it up to my truck for the ride up to Petaluma for the 2020 WCR last week.

For the WCR I only drove it Saturday night for the picture and dinner. I didn't trust the car for the 2 drives thru the unknown roads.

Now to fix a bunch of little things and put a heater in it.
