I searched the forum and found alot of conflicting information. So I'm trying to get the right answer.

I have on 09 GT I bought used and it came with only one keyless entry key and one valet key. Dealer also didnt have the key code tag. No big deal at the time but now myself and my gf keep swapping off using the car and a spare full key would be nice.

I have 3 leftover keyless entry keys from my previous 09 2.5i that was totalled.

What I would like to do is pull the guts from one of these extra keys and stuff them in a flip key housing which I can simply get recut. (trying to avoid the $85 new key fee).

After swapping the guts over, can Subaru lookup the original tag code and could I simply get the old chip immobilizer reprogrammed to work in my GT?

I already asked my local dealer about getting the tag code and they said I'm sht out of luck, they are pretty lazy though so I'm not sure I believe it.
