Just find info on your stock ratio. Like google 08 WRX specs, find the gear ratio, then when looking at aftermarket gear sets compare the ratio. I personally dont want to change my gear ratio at all (except maybe a longer first gear). I think its pretty decent as it sits. That was my main reason for sticking with a 5 spd when talking to a tuner.

I believe that this is the 08 WRX gear ratio (feel free to corrrect me if Im wrong): 5speed manual;
1st 3.166
2nd 1.882
3rd 1.296
4th 0.972
5th 0.738
final 3.900

Best bet if you are serious about a transmission though is to contact these guys: Andrewtech Automotive.
