You can use it with your stage 2 setup but you won't gain anything. You'd need a protune to see any gains. How much gain will you get? Well, you may want to do some other mods while you're at it. With the STi TMIC, a fuel pump, a decent 3-port BCS, and a good tune, you could see substantial gains across the powerband.

A new STI tranny usually runs around the $4K mark without DCCD. Just to put it into perspective. Then theres installation costs, probably upgrade the clutch/flywheel also and you would also need to buy a new short shifter if you had one for the 5spd.

If you can try and take all the suspension hubs and wheels and brakes off that thing. Maybe even try and take the whole rear end and diff out of it as well.

you can't take the hubs, they're not compatible. You'd be replacing a whole lot of the drivetrain to switch to 5x114. You can take the brake calipers if you buy some 04 STi sized 5x100 rotors but you can't use the 05+ rotors on a WRX.

The rear diff if I recall is also not that simple. if you want the tranny and the hubs though, maybe you just go all out and pull the car's entire driveline. Not an easy swap though. You need lots of little things.
