2018 STI Transmission Swap Time!
Hello everyone! I just wanted to make a post to Automotive concerning some upcoming work I will be undergoing at the DMS this week. My transmission finally blew up the other week and now I am swapping in a new one! This car is my daily driver, so I am trying to do the swap as quickly as possible.
I am receiving a freight delivery of a 2018 Subaru STI transmission and other parts needed for completing a full transmission swap on my 2014 WRX. I am expecting delivery tomorrow, 4/24/2018 and will be up at the makerspace that day to receive the shipment.
I plan on utilizing the automotive lift the following weekend to do the swap.
Anyone who wants to help or learn is welcome to join in.
This will be my first time attempting a job of this magnitude and my first transmission swap.
NOTE: All I ask for is a little patience next weekend as I will most likely have my car up on the lift for quite a while. I am hoping to do this job all on Saturday but might stretch into Sunday a bit depending on what happens.
Wish me luck!
