It looks good...I would say it increases the "fun factor" but the stock tranny and TCU is still a good one at reacting to driver's imputs and crisp shifts. I wish our 4EATs had sportronic like the JDM wrxs.
I did notice that it said this is for domestic cars and trucks only. Even in the "imports" section subaru is not even listed as an option....just "Honda - Nissan - Lexus - Acura - Mazda
Infinity - Mitsubishi - Jaguar - Toyota "

That being said, it still seems like a cool idea and if you can get them to do your wrx all the more power to you. Try it out if you have the money (how much is it?) and report back to us how it is. Do your 0-60 and 1/4 times before and after.

woah. Did you talk with someone at levelten? Did they say it could be done on the rex? I'd like to know how it goes, because I'd LOVE to get that mod, and I know a few of my fellow 4EAT ers that would like that too!

im still waiting for an email back
heard back yet?

I don't think it would be too rough on the 4eat since JDM and Euro WRX's come with sportshift. I just hope the shift-gate doesn't look ghetto. Be nice if you could just use the JDM one or one from a leg B4

Holy shizzle. Exactly what I wanted. Where would you get it installed and how difficult would it be?

well im still researching , i want to see if this shiftronic will reduce drivetrain loss at shifts....and since when ytou downshift with it it locks up the TC to deccel like a standard will you accel faster from a roll? if anyoe can answer me those that would be great...i want to make sure im getting something that will allow me to go faster
