I'm currently getting/deciding on a 02 WRX. I'm getting a very good deal on it, but it just recently had a transmission put in it because the shift fork broke on 2nd gear on the old trans. What worries me is that the car only has 35k miles. It just had I new transmission put in, I drove the car both before and after the new tranny.
I've read, what I would say alot of problems with the 5spd in these cars. Is there anyway to prevent, help, or extend the life of the transmission? Or is a 6spd sway out of a newer Sti a direct fit and something I can do fairly easy.
Secondly, the car has cold air intake, unorthodox racing pulley set, skunk 2 exhaust, & a turbo xs blow off. I'm used to messing with my 91 300zx TT and its stock internals can hold 700+hp. What are the limits of this car? I would like to know if a larger turbo w/larger injectors can be safely ran on stock internals & what boost limits the car can be ran safely on also.
Thank you very much & I hope to be talking to many of you soon. ~Trent
