    Thread hijack; First I am going to start with the basics of getting small parts together later on when more 06's show up on car-parts.com or ebay I am going to snatch one up.

    I was wondering what differential would I need to use with the 07 sti transmission?

    I was there was someone on the East Coast (NY) that did a sti swap in a 06 wrx and could help me out when the day comes.

    Assuming someone has the specs of the 07 tranny (center diff ratio, final drive) then it will be simple math.

    Physically the same size...they all bolt up. But STI mounts are stiffer (I'm probably stating the obvious)

    Yeah I have the "Sti mount" on my 5MT, but I wasn't sure if it was a STi (as in Subaru Technica International) aftermarket 5MT tranny mount, or the actual tranny mount for the 6spd USDM STi.

    Hey asonowicz , I was wondering would your part list work with 04 STI trans ? and the rest the same or I would need to stay with a 06 sti trans to keep the parts list?

    Parts acquired:

    - 2006 STI transmission (used, 15k mi, center diff is 1.1:1 ratio)
    - 2006 STI driveshaft (used 800 mi, so the seller claimed it was an 06
    - STI 6 speed shifter assembly (new)
    - STI 6 speed gearshift knob (new)
    - ACT STi Streetlite flywheel 13.9 lbs (new)
    - ACT Streetlite STI clutch kit (used, 8k mi)
    - 2003 Rear Diff (freebee...Thanks ERIC! 3.54 ratio, final drive = 3.9)
    - Neetronics DCCD standalone controller (new)
    - 2 Circlips for 2006 WRX Front Axles (new, dealer)
    - 2 compression washers for clutch master cylinder (new, dealer)
    - about a dozen M10 x 1.25 pitch bolts (various lengths for bellhousing, turbo studs, etc) with Lock washers and hex nuts

    Parts Re-used:

    - Front Axles (2006 axles do not require new seals or stubs)
    - Rear Axles
    - crossmembers
    - exhaust hanger (on transmission)
    - all wiring connectors & plugs (except one plug)

    I was the one that did the Sti drivetrain in my '06 WRX, I actually searched on here and found this link confirming if it actually could be done

    ansonowicz- great writeup and great job on taking on this project

    this is my nasioc link if anyone is interested in looking

    shomes style great job. I am actually located in Queens with a black wrx and some dark rims no drop. Anyways great job. I am still debating If I should keep the 5 speed wait for Mfactory , touge tuning gearset and buy a kit for around 2300$. I am planning get a 2005 sti after the winter. ( teaching wife how to drive my wrx soon so I can give it to her and get a sti for myself ).

    thanks for the comment, as far as what u should do that really depends on ur driving style.... personally i'm not a big 1/4 mile person, so the 6 spd. is great for the type of driving i do, but for u it may be different

    another reason why i went with the 6spd. is because i could sell all my stock parts being that they were in good condition, and make some money back, so it doesnt really end up being that expensive that way

    Can anyone answer me if I were to use a 2004 STI transmission what rear differential would be best match up the transmission? Oh yeah and would I be able to reuse my 06 axles in the 04 sti trans? I found some 04 sti trans and driveshaft for pretty good prices.

    if u are going to use the STi driveshaft u will need to use an R180 rear off an sti.... if u are going to use an R160 rear u will need a 3.9 R&P conversion, as well as a custom driveshaft or one from an automatic wrx (there are other models that will work i just dont remember which) to make it work with the R160

    u should be able to reuse the axles, u need to take out the male stubs from the axle though

    Bringing a dead thread back to life, cause it is exactly what I need to know. First, thanks to ansonowicz and shomestyle for great info!!

    Second, the above highlighted is NOT true, regarding the STI driveshaft and rear diff. All you have to do is change the R-160 rear companion flange that the driveshaft bolts to. This does not take the rear diff ratio into account, as that has nothing to do with the driveshaft
