I'm not sure if the JDM STi changed to a 3.545FD for the rear diff like what the USDM did for the '07 JDM STi's.
But ratios are the same and they still rev to 8000rpms
3.636 / 2.375 / 1.761 / 1.346 / 1.061 / 0.842
The USDM STi that runs the 3.545FD rear diff uses a step up gear transfer gear with a ratio of 1.1:1. You take this 1.1:1 multiply it by 3.545 and you come REALLY close to 3.900; which is 3.8995.
The rear diff with the FD ratio of 3.545 DOES spin slower than the 3.900FD of the same wheel speed. Wonder if they did this to reduce bearing wear and less heat???
