    Hi Tom,

    welcome to the forum,

    2002 may be the first year the WRX was in the states, but "as far as I know" the same engine and gearbox has been in the impreza, else where in the world, from 1993 upwards (until the 2.5l came along) the only problems I heard about the gearboxes are mostly related the way the owners drive the cars and not the year of manufacture.

    Honestly, its all in how you take care of the transmission and how you drive. Don't abuse it and you can still have a good amount of power applied to it.

    Get some good transmission fluid and have fun.

    Not necessarily. testes1010 had ~350whp/wtq (I forget his actual #s) on his '02 without issue when he sold it.

    How it's been treated for its lifetime will be the biggest factor in longevity. There is talk of the '03+ transmissions being "stronger", but they still can let go if shocked / driven improperly.
