You can pick up a 04-05 STi tranny with everything you need to install for around 3.5-4K nowadays, you just need to search

Where can I get full kit for $3.5k? I highly doubt you can find everything including brakes for $3500. I'd get a set if I can find them for that cheap.

You can also look into PPG gears. Their just as strong and u can save the 90lbs from a 6spd. You can still get sti rear diff, axles, hubs, etc
