stock tranny cant handle the added power..
also, you'll need to add a mapping system
or add a new wiring harness and/or new ECU
dont forget the new radiator, fans, crossmember and other bits you'll need to do the conversion...
all in all a conversion will cost approx $6-7k to do it correctly.
No way, RS tranny works fine!
So do the fans, radiator and most of the other bits. Crossmember is required of course.
My tip is to find someone OTHER than a dealer who charges less for labor to work on the car and knows what they are doing, unless the New York area doesnt have any Subaru shops, which I highly doubt
