if you use the passanger side s13 with the passanger side s14 axles then they are perfect length. i machined down some s14 5x114 hubs and pressed them into my stock sti bearings and used 05 rear rotors.left is s14 right is stock 04 sti

ya on the s chassis cars the passenger side axles are the longest ones. so the driver side s14 was to short for my driver side but the s13 passenger side was just long enough for my driver side. dont know if that makes sense.

I have a 04 wrx with albens 5 speed and agile built motor making 400whp right now. How much do u think it would cost me to do the rear wheel drive conversion and how much time is involved? Im not too concerned on make it steer further right now. Also did ya pick up a good bit of top end acceleration doing this?

Depends on how much your fabricator charges and the route you go for rear end and axle set up. And no you won't gain any power low,mid,or top end. Message me if you'd like a quote from my shop for an idea.

Yeah this is pretty awesome. Hey OP, random question. In the pictures of the machined hub and sti hub, are they sitting on an old Colchester lathe?

How are you not gaining more power well more or less speed with less drive train loss up top?

I wish i had skills like you keep the sweet work up

thanks! the amount of power gained from losing 2 cv axles and only directing power to only the rear isnt noticeable. lets just say i gained 2-3% from 2-3% less drive train loss at 300hp at the wheel is only 306-309hp at the wheels. i cant see gaining more than 5% max and that would only be 15hp.
