Hmmm that's real cheap...Oh you'll have to upgrade your brakes, but the wheel bolt pattern is the same.

After a quick google search a set of LGT gears is only $1000, factor in labor which is about $800 plus a rebuild kit so your looking at roughly $2000 for a rebuild trans with stronger gears and a longer ratio than the STi. Plus you won't have to swap everything over and mess with the DCCD.

Hmmmm I don't believe it's a bunch different, but I know they give you a speedo gear with them to help correct the offset in ratio...
