According to Kelley Blue Book the suggested Retail Value for a 2005 STi is:
So he won't have much left from his $25K
Maybe a high mileage one (I priced this as if it were mine with 38,000 miles) from a motivated seller would let him have a few $$$ left.
OK Private party value is:

And I do believe that it is fairly cheaper to buy STi parts for your WRX then it is to by an actual STi. The only thing I have that isn't STi is the heads and I still don't equal the cost of an STi
What about all the other aftermarket parts in your car. I see a FMIC in your avatar (if that's your car of course).
You also have to factor in the cost of installation if the person doesn't have the tools, place, or skills to do it themselves.
P.S. I agree with you on the tranny.

06 GTO M6 Quicksilver, SLP 455 Bobcat, LS7 Clutch w/ SS line (RPM tune:373rwhp/373rwtq)
07 WRX TR M5 Garnet Red Pearl w/ Straight PPGs and Cusco front LSD (Agile tune:307whp/343wtq)
My friend and I did all of the installation for all the parts so I guess that makes it significantly cheaper too.
That's my car but it has changed big-time since that picture was taken. Need to update it I guess.
Would it really be cheaper to put all of the sti parts on your car? I mean the 7000 dollar tranny and other stuff(rear end) with it, as well as new front breaks and the spoiler. Also you are looking at the different engine components, turbo and intercooler. That is over 10,000 and I know for my wrx it was like 25 something so 10,000 more would be a new sti(not an 08 just a very low mileage 07 ). My estimations could be wrong though, I am just spitballin.
