92x aero auto to 5mt swap.

Hello, my first post. Nice to meet ya'll!

So the problem I'm having is that I'm
about 95% done with the 4eat to 5mt swap.
I.e. everything is done with apart from ecu

So, I acquired an 02 wrx 5speed. With a blown
Ej205. I got it cheap and honestly, for the price,
I just decided to swap the saabaru into the new diff
And transmission.

So the issue I'm having is that I need to just get the Ecu
Grounded out for the 5mt.

I've searched and found info pertaining to the wrx but not so much
On the 92x. So I purchased a service manual through Mitchell and cross-
Referenced an 05 Saab 92x aero auto with 02-04 Subaru wrx auto. And my conclusion is that the wires are identical. Colors, pins, joint connectors etc.
However I'm having a hard time finding the magic pin to get the ecu to think it's manual.

Any help would be appreciated. And down the road I will just swap the main harness to the Saab from the wrx.

How did you get on with this swap buddy? I’m thinking of putting a 4.11 trans from an rs in place of the 4eat
