I'd buy the tranny (i don't need rear diff) and drive down to pick it up.
Driveshaft and knuckles too?

$5,500 (or even a bit more more if it includes brembos) is a great price for a complete drivetrain... if its 100% complete.
trans, shift linkage, shift knob, tranny mount, driveshaft, front and rear axles, front and rear hubs, front and rear brembos, rear diff...
dont know if thats all included but thought i'd help outline whats necessary for a swap.
anyone doing the whole thing will also need to get suspension made for 05+ STi and wheels made for 05+ STi.

Wrinkleboi, you have an '02 with an '07 swap, right?
All that is needed are transmission, clutch fork, driveshaft and front axles (as an easy means to change from female to male, without having to crack open the transmission, to reuse the '02 front axles), no?
With the '06/'07 you can reuse the clutch assembly, no?
Then, later you can decide what to do with the DCCD.

yes, i've gone through many variations of this so i'll try to explain clearly below... hopefully the info is useful and not going off topic in a bad way...

the following are absolutely necessary unless noted...
-transmission
-6mt clutch, flywheel, pilot and tob bearings (or you can use 5mt stuff but it wont be nearly as strong, i recommend the 6mt stuff while you're in there)
-6mt clutch fork (must use no matter what)
-6mt tranny mount
-6mt driveshaft (must notch the rear flange slightly to mate to WRX R160)
-shift linkage, shift knob, shift boot (or you can mod your stock one to fit)
-proper front axle fitment (*options explained below)

options on axle fitment:
-you need female axles. if you have an 02-early 04 WRX then you already have them and you're good. if you dont then you need to get female axles... either 02-early 04 WRX or early 04 STi will work fine. doublecheck to make sure your axles are definitely female!
-if you're swapping in an 04 STi tranny which comes with axle stubs, it will fit fine with female axles discussed above.
-if you're swapping in an 05+ STi tranny then you have to purchase early 04 sti axle stubs, circlips, axle seals and then it will fit fine with female axles discussed above.

rear diff compatibility
-if you are swapping in an 04-05 STi transmission, you must convert your rear diff to a 3.9 ring and pinion, commonly found in older subarus for about $150 or so.
-if you are swapping in an 06+ STi transmission, it is already set up properly for a 3.54 rear diff, which requires no modification to the stock rear WRX diff.

i dont know why i'm even responding to this...
have you owned either? do you have a flying clue what you're talking about?
PPGs are amazing... they're incredibly strong, lighter weight than an STi gearbox, and totally badass. however they are NOT cheaper, and the only distinct advantage to them is for drag racing applications, IMNSHO. the lighter weight of it and the better gearing and one less shift are definitely advantageous on a drag strip for sure, but for general use i dont see the overwhelming benefits.
you're going to spend $4000 on the gearset alone, plus $500 for bearings and synchros, plus $300 for a busted case so you can use the case, 5th and reverse, output shaft, etc. you're going to spend ~$700 on labor for assembly, bringing the total to: $5500... and this will leave you with that shoddy open front differential that the WRX comes with. its OK for drag racing, its not OK for road racing, autoxing, etc. if you want to upgrade that plan on another $800 at least. this still leaves you with an inferior center diff but it gets the job done.
at this point you still have the weak link of the stock output shaft which can be upgraded to a PPG piece for about $1000 if you want.
ahh, now you have a tranny that is clearly stronger than the STi, for double the price. but wait, isnt the STi tranny able to hold 500+ whp all day long? a number that very few Subaru owners ever see...

ok, pretty sure i've overdone it now, but hey, you got me started...

what i'm trying to say is... good luck with the sale

anyone with more questions about making this work in their car, particularly with hubs, brembos, rear diff, etc... my PM box is open and i'll help out with info if i can.

hm I always thought it was 07 trannys that were set up for a R160. Is there another way to use a 05+ tranny besides getting all those parts?

uh oh.

hmm? above i stated that if you do an 06+ STi transmission, it is set up for a 3.54 rear diff (like the WRX's R160 and of course the 06+ STi's R180)... so no modification would be required.
dont want to turn this into a tech thread any more than i already have, so any other questions just PM me or start a thread in the drivetrain forum...
