An 06 mt should have a tag on the bell housing with the following number TY754VW7AA

I think he's asking about the 5speed, as the 2.5rs never came with the 6speed, so if I'm right the question is, what is the difference between a wrx 5mt and the 2.5rs 5mt, and how can you tell between the two?

TY754VW7AA is the transmission code for a 5mt out of an 06 wrx.

I guess I should have said

No they didn't get the same trans, you HAVE to use the trans code on the tranny to tell you what tranny it is. That tranny looks like it would work in a N/A car, not a turbo car.

The 06+ WRX has a 3.70 final drive rato (not on the chart). As you can see, no other Subaru really has that ratio. N/A cars usually have taller final drive ratios (shift more often). If you want to use a tranny out of a non-06+ WRX, you will need to swap the rear diff as well. 05+ (I THINK) use male front axles, where the prior 5 speeds have stubs in the tranny that attach to female front axles.

The 06+ also has a push type clutch, where the earlier WRX (and STI 6 speeds) have a pull type clutch.

Long story short, you will spend WAY more time and money trying to get a different 5 speed to fit, so just get the right one. This is especially true if you are not doing the work yourself.
