Yes, that is correct! The part numbers are not technically from the Spec B, but the ratios are the same so that's what they've become known as.

They are different but you can definitely use a 5mt clutch/flywheel in a 6mt.

Exactly what most people are looking for. Them longer gears.
Drives like a 5spd with a highway gear

For a daily driver the longer 5th and 6th are perfect. For a drag car the normal 07+ STI 1st-4th will do the job for nearly all cars as long as you rev them enough. Fuji knows all about this

You can expect a little higher but shouldn't be near 3000 at all.

Higher than what? I'm currently running a 07 STi 6-speed and at 75 mph, I'm a tad over 3,000 rpms. Trying to see what this spec B 6th gear brings at that speed. I'm interested because my tuner kept it at closed loop until 3, 000 rpms after we discussed fuel economy during my last tune.

Thanks for such a thorough write up. Now I know exactly what I need in the future when a swap is needed and not to fret the compatability of my 5x100 wheels and the 5x100 brembo kit I see in my future
