sti tranny in 03 wrx

well im trying to get all the parts figured out and mostly have it but i have a question about the hubs. Its an 05 transmission, would 04 sti hubs work with that? and with the 04 hubs would i be able to keep my stock wrx brakes or would i have to get the brembos?

no the WRX breaks won't fit on the STi hubs.

Take a few hundred steps back though, what are you trying to do? The STi's 6-speed is an expensive and silly swap into a WRX. You're much better off with a PPG or other 5-speed swap. They're stronger, cheaper, and don't require you to replace the whole rear end of your car!

Ya, you definitely need to go with the brembo's, sorry. Dude dont listen to him though go for the 6 speed swap, that will sperate you from the PPG and cryogenic interals crowd. +1 for Akwrx for even attepmting to do this swap. Go for it!

i want a 6 speed =( but then again it really depends on what kind of driving you do, can anyone clear this up for me will a 6 speed get to its top end faster than a 5 speed?

no, it's a crap tranny for drag racing. WORSE than the WRX's 5-speed. It is however a bit stronger (but if you want strength get a PPG 5-speed). It's ultra close and 6th is actually tighter than 5th on the WRX tranny! It will actually reduce your quarter mile times. It's not geared for drag racing AT ALL.

I agree that the 5spd is faster I'm right at the same power level as a sti and the 5 speed helps ALOT!

its all about the 3rd and 4th gears plus I think the 6 speed hits top of 4th just short of the 1320 mark so going to 5th right at the end can't be good.
