that is a good question... but.. If you are getting a full STi swap.. shouldn't it come with the pedals?

the few STi engine tranny units for sale I have seen.. were out of wrecked cars.. and had the pedals strapped on still. Unless you are piecing it together.

the person i am getting it from got a whole car, since i am getting just the drivetrain and not the engine as of right now i dont think im getting the pedals. but i think that mine should work. i dont think i could have use them anyways since my car has a cable throttle and the 04 STI is setup a little differently. but im going to try and get the pedals in case i can use them.

You dont need the pedals if you are just doing the tranny. The only reason you would need them would be for the engines drive by wire.

whoh.. okay now I have a question.. lol So are you just running an STi drivertrain with out the engine on an RS motor? Will the 6 speed actually work decently on the RS motor? that is an pretty interesting thought. I know it would be dumb if you were not going to use a turbo engine.

He probably plans on the motor in the future so getting the tranny, r180, brembos, etc is good idea. I bet his car will be alot funner to drive. I put a 6speed into my nearly stock wrx and it made a big difference in driveability. You have to shift a little more, but if you like shifting then it is no big deal. You can even skip gears with no problem, I am not sure how bad that is on the syncros although.

yea that is pretty understandable but there is a big difference between an RS and a WRX power plant. I don't think I have ever heard the Sti 6spd and 2.5
n/a motor in the same sentence.. pretty interesting. I think it would hurt performance based on the ratios that is why I am just curious as well as bored a lot aha

its not actually going to affect my drivability at all, if anything it will help for power as it wont drop the rpms as much, right now i loose about 1500 rpms with every shift. and with the 6 spd i should loose about 800 or so per shift. and yes i will be using the stock RS engine until i can fund a usdm 2.5 STI swap and have the time to rewire the whole car. i should have everything in about 2 weeks or so.. should be compleate after the first of the year and ill have a write up on how it drives. Thanks for all the info.

"Hey all, i am going to be getting an 04 STI complete drivetrain and was wondering if i needed the pedal set to go with it for the hydrolic clutch or if the stock ones would work? Thanks for any help in this.

James"

To answer your question, you will need at least the slave cylinder for the 6 speed because the RS and STi cylinders are different and mount different as well. Also, I've already told you (FAT) but just reminding you that you will need a 6speed clutch w/ flywheel if you get the starter that goes with the 6 spd other wise, get a 5 spd clutch w/ flywheel (RS and WRX flywheels have same ring gear) so you can use your RS starter. And yes 5 spd clutches work with the 6 spds. 5 and 6 spds have same splindes on the input shaft. If you do use a 5speed clutch, make sure you have a 5 spd release fork. STi 6 speed's are stright and WRX 5 spds have a bend in them.

Anyways any other questions come by the shop and we'll help you out with anything you need.
