Which STI gears will fit in 04 WRX

I was just wondering what STI gears would be able to fit in a 04 wrx. Would any gears fit. Also could you install the gears, drive shagts and not worry about the DCCD.

there are 5-speed JDM STi gears out there but no, you cannot put 6-speed gears in a 5-speed tranny so the USDM STi tranny is out of the question.

If you're replacing the entire tranny to the one in a USDM STi than you get the center diff (and hence DCCD) as well. It's in the same casing. You could just put a resistor in though that would lock the DCCD on auto or fixed or wherever else you wanted it.

Swapping in the 6-speed is not easy or cheap.

04 STi 16G powered lagless fun
04 WRX: SOLD

Is the JDM 5 speed tranny as expensive as say PPG's. And with the JDM version, would all the gears be in the same spot, since it would be put into a car with LHD (left hand drive)
instead of RHD. Any place in the states where you could buy this

Sorry MOSC, what I meant to say is what year STI 6 speed tranny(04-07) would be the best to put in a 04 WRX. Or are they all(sti gears) the same
