    electrical problem

    So i just got my 6sp back into my 2002 WRX.

    a few miles down the road, fuse #18 blew.
    I replaced the fuse and it blew in the exact same place on the road that it blew the first time (i got there sooner this time).

    where might the short be? this circuit has the VSS, head light, high beam, drl, abs solenoid, etc on it.

    PS did not do any wire hacking to install the 6sp.

    Wild guess, but check the clips to the gearbox itself. Isn't there also a ground strap to the gearbox from the top? Did you get DCDD working -- what about that?

    AFAIK the clips are all very secure and the ground strap is snug when i tugged on it. I'll be removing the intercooler in a bit to see whats going on.
