Need New Tranny!!!

I was wondering if the 6-speed STI tranny will work on a WRX? I was looking to get one from a ### spec 2.0 STI. Anyone have any info on if I can do this??? Thanks in advance for your info!!

Do a search. The info has been posted before. It's really expensive as the whole driveline (tranny, front and rear axles, rear diff and I think the brakes) has to be replaced but it can be done.

yeah i saw a few places and it seems to be alot but i need a tranny anyway because my 1st and 2nd are gone. and the dealer won't replace it and this is the second time i have had this problem and i'm not doubting that it was there work that messed me up this time.

Hey, has anyone heard anything bad about the Ver. 6 STI RA 5-speed tranny? is it the same transfer case with better gears? Any one know the deal with it?

no matter what you do, you will still have issues with the 5 speed, due to its inherent design issue....split case. you can put stronger gears in it, but it is only a bandaid. i am doing the RA spec gears, as a temp fix, till i get the 6speed......sometime next summer. or, i will sell more crack...

Sell crack, its easy cash!!! i c well i don't have 10k to drop on a 6-speed so it looks like i'm have to go with another 5-speed for now. im going to have to save my pennies for the 6-speed.

Good luck with the fight, let us know how it turns out. Maybe if you win, there could be a file for some sort of class action law suit with the weak trannies. I know a few DSMers did when quite a few banded together to fight the crankwalking issue.
