all non-DCCD as far as I know, are a 50:50 split running a VLSD 4kg center diff.
My '04 ForesterXT came stock with a 4.44 5 speed. The FSTi trans is very similar to the stock FXT trans, but with an overdrive. Stock trans was running 3800 rpm's at 80mph in 5th, FSTi I can put it in 6th and I am running about 2900 rpm's at 80mph. I figure in gas savings alone this swap should pay for itself.
