Unfortunately it isn't mine ive just been borrowing it while the jeep is out of commission. Nothing beats that feeling of boost in my opinion, and I'd buy one if I had the money. You have to be careful though, because imprezas become money pits just like jeeps do.

I added an AUX port to my factory radio using the CD changer control harness. I took an older write up from smunns (grey goose wj) and updated the info a bit. I have a 99 WJ and his write up was for the 02-04 WJ's. The radio/cd connector/wiring is a bit different between the 99-01 and 02-04's. I took his wiring diagram and updated it so the people with a 99-01 would have a quick reference sheet. Works perfectly, I spent $10 and about an hour to complete.

I won't rewrite his article, you can find it here...

You'll need the radio shack stereo adapter... $3
http://www.radioshack.com/product/in...ductId=2103451

and a 3.5mm Male to Female 6'-8' extension. $6

Using his info as a guide, I wired the aux adapter directly to the back of the CD connector harness and plugged in the 8' aux cord extension to it there. It is secured and hidden behind the radio. I ran the aux cord extension under the console up near the seat belt harness, the excess length is wrapped up and tucked behind dash at the front of console. From there, using a standard male/male aux cord I can plug in whenever I want to play my iphone/ipod. My thought was, if a connector or cable goes bad, I would like to be able to replace it easily... I also didn't want to mount the aux adapter permanently to the dash since I'm sure I'll eventually upgrade the radio. Just press CD and voila...music from the phone.

Here's the updated wiring diagram that shows both WJ models...


Testing the connection...


Soldered...(thats just black tape between the connections)


Taped and Secured...


finished... also a good shot of all that fake plastic wood grain I covered up with plasti dip!


Hope it helps someone else... super easy and cheap if your just needing an aux port.

Is it true that you have to have a working cd changer to make this work?

There is an exhaust mount that integrates into the transmission mount. If he removed that mount to attach the catalytic converter that could explain why it hangs low since the only other mount in the system is the tailpipe mount.

Refer to my write up on installing the Kolak exhaust without welding:

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...nstall-477862/

The exhaust mount I am talking about sits about 3 inches or so toward the front of the Jeep. You can also reference how the muffler should look when it is sitting level and installed properly. Even with the Flowmaster Big Block muffler, the body shouldn't hang much lower than the rear control arm mount.

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff

I just read that you DO need a working 10 disc changer to make this work.

You need a cd changer that "powers on"... if you dont have a CD changer plugged in that powers on when you hit the "CD" button, it wont even switch to it. My CD player doesnt even play most CD's i put in it...so its basically worthless, but necessary for this AUX connection to work with the way I outlined it. You can't simply plug audio left/right into the corresponding pins on the back of the radio where the cd changer plugs in and expect it to work. it has to recognize that the cd changer actually powered itself on when you hit the "CD" button. Odd, but true...
