Is it possible to put the 6mt into a 4eat car and have it look pretty? ('05 Leg), Since I do a lot of highway, I figure the longer ratios would be nice.

I have a 99rs with an sti swap, engine and tranny from an 05 sti, except i have the 05 rs rear diff to keep my 5x100 set up. i want to change to the stronger sti rear diff so i would need the sti driveshaft, sti axles, and 04 sti hubs correct? is there anything else that i would need and also i have the 06 wrx 4 pot brakes front and rear. if i change to the 04 sti hubs will my brakes still fit or will i have to get brembos?

You will need the STi brakes. The bolt pattern will stay the same, but pretty much everything else changes.

So, I had an 07 STi transmission with the rest all 02 WRX crap until yesterday. I swapped in the rest of the 07 STi junk, but it seems the e-brake (parking brake) cables are too short to reach the bell crank thing under the center console by about an inch. Anyone had that problem before? Even better, is there a remedy? Thanks!

I solved my parking brake problem a while back, and figured I would post the solution that worked for me. Again, this was 07 STi suspension going into an 02 WRX and the parking brake cables were too SHORT and wouldnt reach the cable coming off the hand brake lever.

The solution was easy enough, I just ordered up the cable that goes on the lever for an 07 STi (P/N 26051SA050). It was about 1" - 1.5" longer than the WRX version, which netted me enough room to connect the cables to the parking brake lever. They moved the brake lever in the newer cars, thus, that had to be longer, and it just happened to work perfect for my setup.

The WRX parking brake handle cable had two nuts, but the way the STi cable fit into the WRX handle, there wasnt enough threaded part showing to fit two yet. There are currently about 5 threads showing past the top of the adjusting nut, but the brake doesnt engage until the handle is up higher than I want (about 3/4 of the pull) anyway, so Im going to jack up the rear end and tighten that nut while making sure the parking brake isnt dragging until I get it more in the middle of the pull where I want it.

Once thats done, I suspect there will be quite a bit more threaded shaft past the top of the nut and I may be able to double nut it the way the WRX version was set up. I highly doubt it would back off anyway, but you never know. Ive seen plenty of cars that run a single nut there anyway and everything is fine. Im sure it will work just fine for years to come.

You need an 07 trans, an auto driveshaft from any impreza model (or a yolk from a wrx with an sti driveshaft), and front axle stubs. Of course, you can use your wrx clutch, but the sti ones are bigger, so if you are buying a new one (which you should) get an sti clutch and flywheel. You will need an sti clutchfork and linkage/shfter as well, but if you buy it used, it will probably have all that. Be aware that only the 07 trans gets you out of swapping you rear diff, thus making you swap axles, hubs, brakes, etc. You will NOT need new axles if you keep the rear diff the same, just get 04 axle stubs for the front and it bolts right in.

okay so i have an 05 2.5rs that is currently auto i was originally planning on doing a 6 speed swap sometime next summer if everything goes right since i am only 18 and parents do not want to pay the insane insurance prices on a wrx or sti. this will sorta be my grad/get into college present i guess.
anyways i will have 5k to spend for the tranny swap but am thinking that it would be better just to do the entire drivetrain swap since i plan on sti swapping later on, alot later on.
so my question is about how much more would i need to save for a complete drivetrain swap if it was to be done at a shop? or should i just do the 6 speed swap now and save the rest for later?

Cyclops, could you edit you original post to include a section for a bares bones swap. Also, maybe add some info 07 tranny with WRX diff and stuff like that?
In post #61 you added some good info as well as some of Xenri's posts. I spent a little time reading this thread and it would be nice to see it summarized it the beginning post.

Whoaaa so confusing! I swear if your dropping an 04 6speed into a 2002 rex wagon, you just need 04 axles and not swap out the whole knuckle. 04 sti's come with 5x100. Correct me if im wrong.

Sure, give me a little bit of time and I'll edit the original post with some additional info.

So I might be reading into this wrong, I have an 02 wrx that I am planning on doing a 2.2 stroker kit on, if I was to use the sti trans lets say from an 04 would I be able to just bolt it up and use basically all the stock wrx suspension stuff minus the drive shaft or would/should I change the axles and brakes. Would the wiring be different or would that stay the same. I know that the trans is bigger than the 5 speed therefore the driveshat would need to be changed. But could I use the stock axles, knuckles and hubs with just changing the trans.

I've read half a dozen 6 speed swaps threads and still am unclear on a couple things:

For a 06-07sti budget swap into 03 wrx, Do I need the slave cylinder? And same question for 04-05 sti swap instead?

As for the auto driveshaft, exactly what models and years will work?

Ok, so I'm glad someone asked this question but I'm still unsure. I have been looking at 04 STi drivetrains because the car I'm looking at getting (01 RS with 05 STi swap but RS trans) has 5x100 rims that I'd like to keep but already has STi 22B brakes on DBA rotors, that I'd also like to keep.

Will I be able to just swap everything from the 04 STi and keep the wheels and brakes (since they're from an STi) that are already on the car?

I found a "complete" 04 STi tranny swap that I think would work. Am I correct in looking at 2004's instead of 2005+ ?

*edit - the car already has an STi suspension (v6 struts, eibach springs) too

Halp! I can't bump the thread because it's a sticky

Here's what's on the car currently:

And here's the swap I'm looking at getting, from a 2004 STi:

brembo And Calipiers Not Included
What, if anything, is missing? What do I still need to buy, clutch master/slave cylinders? (or can I reuse the ones on the car?)

Do I HAVE to get Brembos or are the STi 22B brakes on the car "ready" for the swap? Is the suspension ok for the 6SPD swap?

I've searched but most of the info that has to do with the RS doesn't assume the engine has already been swapped and that the rest of the car is stock. I'm trying to see what WILL fit with what has already been done with the car.

*edit - also, what about the DCCD. If I'm using an STi ECU, shouldn't the DCCD work if I have the brain and dial for it? I would be ok with it working and me not having the display on the dash.

well if the bone stock 2000 2.5rs suspension fits on the 04 hubs. I don't see why the 02 WRx which has the same bolt pattern wouldn't fit on a hub that is the same bolt pattern.

if it is the 05 hubs then I'd say no you need suspension

Maybe too late, but you'll also need the 04 STI rear hubs. The 02 WRX rear hubs is not going to work with the R180 and STI axles.
