yeah that's what I hear. That's why I was thinking about getting the PPG tranny. I hear that the STI tranny's are very strong, but because of the gearing and 1 less gear the ppg 5MT will be faster and have a lower idle at cruising speeds(for mpg considerations lol). Plus I read that there's more of a wiring headache with the 6 speed since it has the adjustable gearing thingy where you can change it from S to S# etc. You have any experience doing that kind of work?
I just said 06 because I didn't want to put 04-07. I was lazy lol.
