You really decide on the shift tube once the engine and trans are in the car and the headers are mounted on the engine. Then you can tell what shape your shift rod will need to be. Trying to guess before you have the 3D picture will be a waste of time. Same with the exhaust. Until the engine is mounted in the car, you don't really know what you need.

Frank, you don't need a shift rod with a subaru trans. It uses cables.

I wouldn't worry about checking fuel flow until the engine is installed. It's a pretty simple system. Trust me, you will hear the pump running when you turn the key. The fuel flow is regulated by the pressure regulator on the fuel rail so there's not much point in measuring the flow if it's not hooked up to the engine.

I didn't need spacers to flip my intake and neither did George. Phenolic spacers aren't super easy to make but I bet someone here could make them.

Frank,

It takes (at least) a few hours and a lot of patience to flip the intake. ThePaintedMan's thread shows some very good tips and tricks. I removed some of the small vacuum lines that were interfering with the flip and replaced them with soft lines to make it easier. I also rerouted the fuel lines a bit.

The cost of using a 901 trans is almost the same as a Subaru 5MT, and the 5MT shifts like a modern car. It also bolts right up to the EG33. With a 901 you have to get an adapter plate, and sometimes modify the linkage. The 901 is a fine trans and I'd use it with anything I could bolt it right up to, but not with an adapter. Too many other options these days. You do have to install a hydraulic clutch but that is well documented here.

You pay for shipping I'll send you a Sub MT5 Trans, I have a few spares now. You will just need a spool and rear cover, everything is ready to go.

I even have a set of axles I will toss into the deal, cut them or have them resplined. I am not suing them because I plan on doing (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif) with my 914.

Do yourself a huge favor and goto the subaru transmission.

Any idea what the shipping cost would be to Utah? I'll take you up on that deal... if you have some pics of the serial #s I'd like to see which would have the best ratios (if there's a difference between them) and go from there. Wow... thanks?!

It was meant for you but if he's got another to spare, I'd go for it also. I've driven a couple of the Subie conversions with those transmissions - it's really the best way to go!
Sorry to barge in on your deal but I'm just trying to help him clean his garage! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Yes it was meant for you, and yes the 914 crowd can be cheap, but hey paying it forward. PM me with your zip, and I will see what shipping will be for it.

For every one else so quick on the draw, sorry, I have one I want to move out of the shop. The rest, all 2 of them, I will be keeping. One is going into my car the other will be going on my spare EG.

Wow that's a huge donation Steve. GO FOR THAT DEAL FRANK!!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Aldo Frank, wait until you get the stuff before you order any clutch parts. The clutch, pressure plate, flywheel all are matched to the trans, not the engine. You don't have any of that since the SVX is automatic. You just have a flex plate which you won't use. You also need longer bolts for bolting the flywheel on. We'll get to that later.
