Hold up just one sec... this may not be the right thread but... I MUST HEAR MORE ON THIS!!!
subaru said that the 08's are as listed below
1st gear: 3.166
2nd gear: 1.882
3rd gear: 1.296
4th gear: 0.972
5th gear: 0.738
and i found this right here on NASIOC about the 5spd STi RA ratios:
so did things change for some years? or is somebodys info wrong? (mine most likely) because if Jeff is right, then the cost of a new 08 tranny is very good compared to an RA gearset. and if they use the old gears in the new cars, then the gears should be stronger and better ratios compared to our "glass trannys" in older 5spd WRX's. also being that everything is leggy based now, that must mean that the 08 trans is the weaker push type clutch, or am i misinformed on that too?
if anybody could clarify, please do so!
