Default question on 2001 impreza RS-T

I'm thinking of selling my 2001 impreza RS-T since I can't afford two car payments. It has a ludespeed stage III turbo kit/linkplus/440cc injectors/ACT clutch/Carbon fiber hood/Greddy EGT/Boost/Timer/Type-S BOV/INJEN CAI/Eibach 1inch spring with the wrx intercooler. it's got 76000 miles on it. What is the going rate for these anyway?

honestly, mods don't add value to these cars. You would be better off parting it out and selling the car stock.

I was going to fix my tranny and just sell it but I put way too much money into it. After looking at the car, the gc8 styles are so unique I can't give it up. I will just suck up the 2 car payments and keep it. Thanks for the input doctornick.

Hey Hoon!

Keep it man. Your right about the GC8, it just attaches to you. What did you do to your tranny?

hey graham,

I recently moved to virginia and was going downhill when it happened. I was shifting to 3rd and was at only less than mid throttle then it broke into pieces. I think it's useless to repair it so I'm looking to just buy another RS tranny from someone and bolt it on. It might be cheaper that way. Do you know if the sti RA gearsets will fit into our RS tranny? Rallispec said they did not know if it would work. They never tried it before.

Well...how are you doing in texas? How is your car doing?

Sorry to hear about the break, thats not fun. Either way, I would highly recommend putting a stronger set in their. I think you should also look at the PAR hardened synchro set. They have proven poplular and reliable among the RS-T and WRX guys. Look around in the tranny forum (search) and you will find some good stuff about them. Should be around $3000 installed. The STi RA gearset I don't know much about. I know kastle installed STi V.4 gears in his car and loves them. Might want to research a bit.

I didn't know you moved to Virginia? I am great out here in Texas. Just doing my thing. My car is great. I'm at 10 psi now, right around 230 torque at the wheels from the last dyno (170 HP).

Thanks Graham!

I might look into the version 4 sti gearsets. The version 4 fits perfectly into our RS tranny?

Yeah...I moved to Virginia to make more money. Driving our beautiful GC8s here is not a good idea. Especially with 18's with 35 series tires. I had to get a second car.

I heard you were boosting 10 psi! That is great! I wish I could see how your car feels now!

From what I know, most, if not all Subaru gearboxes use an 8-bolt configuration. So, most will bolt up to eachother. However, there are a few exeptions. One being the STi six speeds. If you plan to use this tranny then you will need to take a hammer to your tranny tunnel as the six speed is fatter than five speeds and there is not enough room in the RS tunnel for it to fit.

Another thing is the push type vs. pull type clutch arrangement. I don't know much about this, but there are differences between Subaru cars. I know the WRX and RS are different, and I'm sure JDM trannies might not be the same as the RS.

Otherwise, I think it is just a matter of getting the correct center and rear differentials.

Thanks for the tips!

Another question...If I have a spare tranny laying around..Is there a way the dealership can check to see if the transmission is in good working order without taking the tranny apart? Thanks!

Not really sure man. I imagine they could turn the gears around somehow, but that would only be to listen for metal scraps rustling around. Otherwise, they might have to crack it.

They should be able to push the rod in and turn it to the desired gear or just leave it in neutral...if it doesn't turn at all, then something is wrong....

Sup Kevin!

How are you man? I was sleeping when you called. When are you moving to your new job? I think just putting the stock tranny is fine instead of upgrading to the STI gears. My new elantra is great for all my regular driving. I'm not a hyundai sales guy or anything but these Hyundai Elantras are a bargain beaters.

Are there any good subaru dealerships around in Virginia area to install the new tranny? The one I went to Richmond wanted an arm and a leg.
