    Automatic Engine work In a manual GC8?

    I drive a Version 2 JDM spec WRX and after some spirited driving I blew the HG. I found a new engine and before going ahead with the purchase I just want to check some things that the first 22 pages of a Google search could not help me with.


    The ej20 Im buying is from a version 4 AUTO wrx. All ill be using from it is the LongBlock, Ill be swapping my inlet manifold,turbo and intercooler over and injectors,rails etc. Will this longblock be the exact same as my JDM spec one? will it drop right into my car as if it were from another v2 jdm 5sp manual wrx? no additional wiring etc.?


    I really appreciate any help at all with this, thanks so much xD

    my boyfriend works at a jdm importer, he says it's the same, and that most of the motors they import are from automatics. (swapping transmissions would be a whole other can of worms...)
