the mechanical aspect of a subaru swap doesn't phase me at all I plan to fabricate the installation hardware and rad stuff but what puts me off is the electrics.Im not scared of them either, I rewired my bus and just finished rewiring my model A Ford , but all this electronic stuff gives me the heebee geebees .. There doesn't seem to be much out there regarding the circuits to eliminate from the loom albeit the radio speaker circuits, lighting, wipers, central locking, washers, AC, and a host of other modern crap can be ditched but what about the borderline stuff.. Im aware you need the retain the ignition switch with the immobiliser OR DO YOU .. ? and obviously the starter cirv=cuit and engine management, but the fuel pump will differ as will a few other odds and ends. do I need to keep any subaru instrument parts.. is there any signal generators I need if im using the VW transaxle... Im also finding it hard to locate a decent subaru wire colour code for the tracers and stuff .. With the loom stripped there are probably only 60 or so wires left, it would be easy to modify the loom if the relevant colour codes for the relevant wires was made common knowledge and it would make the conversion proper easy .. Does anyone have a link or a list of the retained circuits and there colour coding .. in particular for a 2 litre legacy. I prefer the old school diagrams.. the only ones can find in the haynes manual are the new style block diagrams .. I cant make head or tail of them .. It looks like a good few days work for a first time loom split .. Im pretty sure I would use my van a lot more if it was quicker and more rat race friendly .. I like driving slow but I also like to shake audis and BMWs off my bumper ..
