Ok, so it WAS my transmission that went out:( and the driveline too!
Now I am on the hunt for a transmission for this car!
It is a 2005 Subaru Outback LL BEAN 3.0r 5eat Sportshift

I have been trying to do a lot of research and cannot seem to find a definitive answer, will a legacy GT 5sp auto work on my car? Or will a outback XT 5sp auto work on it?
My BIG question is

Will this tranny from a Liberty bolt up?
I'm worried about needing to locate a new rear diff? Will I need to for any of these trannys?
If I go with the JDM tranny what do I need to do to get it to work with my USDM engine and rear diff?

On your transmission and on the data plate for your car should be a transmission identification number TG5C7CMXXX where the three X's vary. You can check your data plate/transmission and find one with the same identification.

Car-part.com lists only 2005/2006 Model Years as interchangeable.

FYI under your avatar it says you got a 2.5I

and not a 2005 Bean,

if you click the link next to the question mark in my signature you can fix or add.

_______

Libertys are like Legacys.

you maybe isolated to 245-250hp 3.0 outbacks, or JDM lancasters. for differences in gear ratios/ specs, as few will be the exact match.

I would call Subaru Rupair in Colorado and ask if they have a matching one and how much would it be to ship to you.
they can also verify what you should be looking for (at least in the USDM).

Ok I fixed my Sig from my old Subie to the new one... thank you!

Ok I will give them a jingle and see.

So what is the difference between the JDM and the USDM trannys anyways? Is there something backwards on them? Or anything I need to worry about or custom fab?
