    02 wrx engine help

    Hey guys I am new to the wrx forum and I am in the process of buying an 02 wrx. I have owned subarus before and just love em so I had to get another. Ok well here is my question. The car that I am buying has a blown motor. I have found a motor for it but it came from an automatic car. The car that I am buying is a 5 speed. Will this motor bolt right in without a problem. Is there any difference between auto and stick motors that I should be aware of or any problems that I will run into. Thank you very much for your time.

    absoutaly no difference in the motor. it will bolt right up all u have to do is put ur flywheel and clutch on the new motor and boom ur done simple. i know this bc i bought my 02 and a mounth later spun rod bearing and shot crank and piston=new motor out of an auto. so ive done this already.
