To fit the the larger rotors and hub size. 100x5 WRX vs 114x5 STi

Calipers are not specific on bolt pattern, it's the rotors that are. The OP has an 04' STi trans which would keep them 5x100, would still need the rotors for the larger surface area. But again, I don't think swapping the calipers is necessary, although it's nice to have.

Crap I didn't even see that it was an 04..my mistake.

Oh poo....I can never get a straight answer out of people for the 6-spd swap in an 06-07. It's like some hidden secret.

NASIOC.com. Been done hundreds of times, hundreds of way over there. If you like the ratio of the 5spd you will not like the 6spd more than likely.

The well documented threads/builds I have read are opposite to what I would do - 04-05 WRX with an 06-07 STi trans. I found someone (through NASIOC) within the tri-state area for me that hooked me up with a solid answer. And the ratio of the 5-spd in the 06-07 WRX is fantastic. I could usually hit over 100 in 4th easily.

Its not that big of a deal realistically...its a extra shift. And if you start getting into larger turbos....the 1st gear on a 6 spd will get you up and moving pretty darn quick. Helps kill the lag
