Ive come across a 2004 STI swap package for ~10k, but i can still get that V5 front clip for 5k. Is the 2004 STI 6spd drivetrain that much of an improvement over the '99 V5 EJ207 5spd?
Reason being is my total budget is roughly 10k to finish the car... not really looking for a slew of parts for the whole price range, although it is tempting... but ive heard the 2004 STI tranny is a hand grenade waiting to go off. Not sure what to think, any insight in the matter?
Looking to swap within the next month or 2.
