Ok, round two at trying to include IMGs in my post!!

Well, the WRX transmission only flexs because its broken into three separate pieces vs the STI transmission. The 6 spd is a lot beefer.

I realize these are the 2nd Gen transmissions. But, you can really see the difference.

swap because the sti trans has a higher hp case flex then the wrx if I am correct, thus the reason wanting to do the swap

same with me Nathan, i plan on getting a built motor from my local subaru tuner shop.
Once you reach 350, your kinda maxed until you do motor upgrades/trans work or swap

I wanna get something rated to 500 whp because my goal is about 450awhp area.
