2006 Wrx transmission.

Well I'm looking to upgrade my 06 Wrx. Vf43, 780 injectors Perrin too mount, has helix catted downpipe welbro 255 fuel pump. Prob right around 300whp little over 300torque. Was wonder what everyone thought about my stock trans pretty sure the guy before me put a new clutch in it very stiff ( feels like my uncle 383 vet the way a clutch should feel). Question being what gears should I upgrade to or should I get and Sti trans. Place around
Me has a bunch of totaled sti's got a price for a trans plus diff an it was right around 3000 what other parts would I need. Thanks alot guys just little worried bout my trans no grinding it any gear yet and fresh fluid in everything in the car.

its a million dollar question when it comes to gear sets and so on and so on. im going to go with rebuilding my gears with the rallispec gear sets. and before i put them back into the case im sending off the gears and diff to a nitro freeze company that hardens the gears even more. check the links below for info. its a lot cheaper that way then swap in a 6 speed sti or do a ppg gear set.

and of course it also depends on your end results. if you just want a daily driver with a little pep in her step,and fun on the weekends then the rallispec should be fine. but if you plan on going full race the ya you may want to look into PPG gears. its a tough call to be honest. you can search this site for days and get tons of different answers.

Yeah it's basically a dd that will never see any track time never launched. Just spirited driving... Looked into lgt gears there def bigger then stock an about the same size when it comes to Sti gears. I'm either going with Sti gears or lgt gears. What's installation of gears normally cost? Thanks for the help

STi 6 speed swaps are always cool, but there is a laundry list of other parts you'll need to complete the job. That's why I opted for a set of upgraded 5 speed gears - direct replacement. Albins is a competitor of PPG and they make gears that are just as strong, if not stronger. IAG can hook you up with them if you're interested

Here's a detailed thread (with before and after pics) from when my trans was rebuilt at IAG: Blew my 07 trans tonight

$316.00 labor for the trans teardown
$474.00 labor for the rebuild
$4,142.51 for the Albins 1-5 gearset (after a 10% discount because I had to wait so long)
$83.95 for an SPT trans mount
$30.00 for a set of Kartboy trans crossmember bushings
$39.50 labor to install the mount/bushings
$7.99 for a 3" 2-bolt exhaust gasket
$19.00 for a turbo-to-downpipe gasket
$75.00 for the resurfaced flywheel
$5.00 for miscellaneous exhaust hardware
$48.40 for Motul 75w90 gear oil

My rebuild was a touch over $5k.

I don't plan on going much farther after my turbo upgrade so I've been looking at replacing 1-4 with brand new lgt gears. And all new syncros and bearings for everything it'll come to 1400 in parts. What's the normal price got trans rebuild?

LGT gears are not an upgrade.

If you dont launch or drive like a ricer the later wrx trans isnt really as bad as people make it out to be. Imo it gets a bad rap because of irresponsible drivers.

Guess I'll just wait snd see what happens trans feels great now. No grinding at all clutch feels great. New fluid. not beaten. I feel pretty confident that it'll be fine just a
Thought in the back of my head.
