I'm going off hazy memory here, but:

An Impreza 5spd will bolt up (obviously matching diffs, blah blah).  The TCU can be removed, I think.  In one case we removed it and it was fine, in another the windows stopped working.  The ECU should have one pin (AT ID or similar) that needs to be grounded to change it to a manual one.  The VSS may have to be re-wired too.  The only one we got totally done was old enough it used a cable speedo.
