    I know from time to time people talk about doing ver. 7 engine swaps and adding ver. 5 wings. Now you can look like you know what their talking about.



    GC chassis 1992-2000

    STI Version(S), year, and chassis code(s):
    I: 1992-1994 GC8A/B
    II: 1995 GC8C
    III:1996 GC8D
    IV: 1997 GC8E
    V: 1998 GC8F
    VI: 1999 GC8G
    *all GC body style*


    New GD chassis 2001-now:

    Japan:
    REV:
    A 2001
    B 2002
    C 2003
    D 2004
    E 2005
    F 2006
    G 2007

    In USA that would be:
    VII 2002-2003
    VIII 2004-2005
    IX 2006-

    I'm pretty sure that's how it goes. Mods or anyone else jump in if I miss anything.
