Default STI >99RS; Anything I'm missing?

So this weekend I'm swapping my old '05 STi drivetrain into my new 99RS. It's already got the motor swapped, just need to do the rest. I want to make sure I've got everything lined up so there's no suprizes. The STi drivetrain is already pulled. I'll be running it with RCE T2's.

The suspension components were pulled whole. Meaning everything is still connected. Uprights, hubs, lower control arms, brake calipers, etc.

Here's what I've got...

STI transmission
T2's with GTWorx front camberplates
Rear Cusco RS camberplates
Front suspension
Rear suspension
STI axles
New motor/trans mounts
Trans fluid
Brake fluid
New clutch
Drive shaft
Rear diff

Is there anything else I should be looking at? anything I'm missing? Is there any wiring I need to be concerned with? Every thing is being done in an actual shop so we've got car lifts, tranny lifts etc.

thanks

Dan

Got those. Forgot to put them up. Thanks

So what about brake/clutch master cylinders? The RS has ABS now if it matters. Do I need to transfer those over also? And what about the brake booster?

Do you want to keep ABS? Don't think the RS has the same pump as the STi.. I'm pretty sure if that's everything you're doing you're going to have issues with ABS and speed sensors.

Here is what you need for a complete swap into a 2000 2.5rs. The 98 is different because it has a different style clutch but this list should hold true for any 99-01 2.5rs. I haven't completed the swap yet, but I'll add on if I missed anything. Also, STI wheels will fit but with 225s you'll probably rub. Your best bet is either different tires, coil overs or a lot of rolling, cutting, and pulling. ALSO NOTE: you can use STI lower control arms up front but from what I'm told STI lateral links in the rear won't work, they make your camber go crazy. You can get adjustable lateral links or you can get the STI pink lateral links for the RS or just stay with stock. Stock style means stock rear sway and the biggest I can find is like a 22mm, which sucks. I really wanted 27mm again on the RS so I'm going with the adjustable Whiteline lateral links.



ALSO: You'll have to do something in the back for the top hats. The front top hats are all the same from 93-07 AFAIK, but the rear STI tophats are bigger. Two of the holes will fit great, the third you either have to move the stud on the top hat or oval out the hole in the perch to make it fit. The best solution is coil overs. You can get coil overs that will fit the STI knuckle but have the top hats for an RS. I'm still researching this so I'll update later.



What you need:

5x114.3 wheels - $700 /w crappy tires

STI Springs - $200 for Cobb springs /w struts

STI Struts - came with springs

STI 6 speed - $3000

STI 6 speed clutch fork - included with tranny

STI hubs /w knuckles - $100

STI drive shaft - $35

STI tranny mount - included with tranny

STI axles - $200

STI rear diff - $200

STI clutch, flywheel, and pressure plate - included with tranny

STI 6mt shift linkage - $100 for a brand new short linkage

STI 6mt shift knob - $25

STI 6mt shift lever - $80 for Kartboy SS

STI 6mt shifter bushings - $40 for Kartboy front and rear

STI Brembos /w pads and rotors - $1200 with rotors and pads

STI rear subframe that the diff and axles mount to - freebie

STI or 02-05 clutch slave cylinder (pull style) - $30



What you'll reuse:

ABS sensors

Brake lines

All the nuts and bolts to mount stuff

Clutch master cylinder



Optional stuff:

STI Lower control arms (need STI FSB and endlinks also) - Paid $150 for the LCAs and another $140 for a Whiteline 27mm FSB and $50 for Whiteline endlinks

Aftermarket DCCD controller - Paid $340 for a Spiider

Coilovers! - definitely recommended to make it work perfect

Adjustable or stock rear lateral links
