I can speak from experience that the WRX trans isn't going to blow apart at 300whp or 300wtq, no it will pretty much give out right about the time you really don't want it to regardless of how much power your making. I know I have run well over that numerous times at the track and mine held quite nicely...

I was also looking at an 03 wrx with an 04 STi drive train swap...or a high mileage one owner 04 STi all stock just has a little over 200k miles...OR I might just have to hold off another year till I can incrrase my budget but I'm starting to feel like if I don't do this now I never will. Anyway the one with the drive train swap does seem pretty legit but he is 2 states away from me, heres the posting

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hn...883643690.html

I've been texting the guy a bit and he sent me a link to a dyno video and has the paper results from it...380 whp and 351 wtq...so if I could get this for 12,000 do yall think it would be worth it (would also leave me with about a 3,000 dollar oh shit budget) lol he even added me on Facebook

Okay so I drove a WRX the other day at my local Subaru dealership and when I was at high rpms there was a noice that sounded like a vibrating almost light grinding in both 2nd and 3rd...this one is all stock bought, serviced and sold there its2 whole life and as far as I can tell it's never been modded. It's a 2006 with 87,000 miles for 14,995 which seems like a high price imo

You'd be buying another person's problems. Highly modded cars are a big nono in my book. Don't listen to me though I know absolutely nothing about these cars...I just get on here and let words flow from the keyboard to the screen...
